Munster and Connacht 'set for sleet and snow'

Met Éireann has warned of outbreaks of sleet and snow developing this afternoon and evening in much of Munster and Connacht.

They are forecast to extend further east tonight, as temperatures plunge again to around -2C.

"Early tonight, in fact, could see some frost in the east of the country," said Meteorologist Joan Blackburn.

"And then later on in the night, when that system clears it will probably be frosty and icy in the west.

"With any winter precipitation really you have to watch out for the frost and ice."
