It is in effect until 3am on Wednesday, 17th January.

The snow-ice warning from Monday has now been updated and a warning has been sent out to the whole of Ireland. 

They say: “Snow showers will affect Ulster and Connacht tonight and will extend to most other areas late in the night and during Tuesday morning. Some accumulations of snow are likely, especially in northern and western areas and over hills elsewhere, along with some slippery conditions”.

That is also in place until 3am on Wednesday.
