Freezing air from Russia is pushing a cold front ever closer to Ireland.

Temperatures dropped as low as -3C overnight across parts of the North.

Met Éireann has issued a yellow weather warning for exceptionally cold weather for the remainder of the week.

Snow showers are expected from Tuesday onwards, particularly in the east and southeast, with the possibility of more persistent bands of snow developing later in the week.

Farmers are being warned not to be caught out - water supply could freeze and early lambs will need to be kept indoors.
