Higher Ground Set To Be Worst Hit By Snow

"Devon's army of Snow Warden volunteers should be aware of the potential for some snow to lay on higher ground over the next 36 hours, but should also be prepared for a period of cold weather with the potential for ice and possibly further snow at times".

Motorists are urged to drive with care in today and tomorrow as a snow and ice warning is put in place for Donegal.

Other areas will see snow showers beginning in the afternoon, and continuing through the evening and overnight.

Counties Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Longford, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo are expected to be the worst hit with snowfall likely to cause accumulations of 4 to 8cm.

A number of status yellow wind warnings were also issued this week, with gusts exceeding 100kph having been forecast.
