Half term washout feared as days of heavy rain forecast”

The yellow wind warning - which is in place for Munster, Leinster and Galway - comes into effect at 3pm on Saturday until 8pm.

The Met Office has issued its latest warning for snow and ice across Co Tyrone.

He added: "On Sunday we're back into a westerly air flow, which normally wouldn't be particularly cold, but as the air is originating from the very cold Arctic Canada region the air will be cold enough to bring snow to sea level".

"This will result in falling temperatures and icy patches are likely to develop on some untreated surfaces, especially where any wintry showers lead to wash off of previous treatment".

Tomorrow Sunday will be a cold, bright day with sunny spells.

More showers this afternoon will give a total 24 hour rainfall accumulation for today of between 25 and 35 mm.
