Met Eireann issues status RED Snow Ice warning for Munster and Leinster
The forecaster says they're predicting 'blizzard-like' conditions with heavy snow and strong winds.
It's valid from 4 o clock on Thursday until midday on Friday
Forecaster Joan Blackburn has the very latest:
"There's a red warning still in operation for Eastern counties for the rest of today and into tomorrow."
"Later on tomorrow, we've got a band of snow moving right up over the country, rather than showers. That's expected to give the worst of its snowfall through Munster and Leinster and there's a red warning in operation."
