New status orange weather warning issued as snow hits Ireland overnight

That snow storm was so severe that lying snow is still visible in parts of the country today.

A Status Orange snow-ice weather warning is now in place for ten counties - Dublin, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath and Waterford.

Dublin Bus services are running, but with some disruption.

Passengers are advised to check flight status with their airline before travelling.

A spokesperson said:"Dublin Bus wishes to advise customers that due to the continuous snowfall during this morning, there are curtailments in place on some routes".

Most Irish Rail services are operating, with delays to services in and out of both Connolly and Heuston stations in Dublin.

A statement reads: "All Services operating, but are subject to delays".

Due to adverse weather conditions the Festival Big Day Out event scheduled to run from 12-6pm today in Merrion Square will not take place.

Met Éireann forecaster John Eagleton said that, although the snow is falling quite heavily in places, it may not be accumulating because of its "dry powdery" nature.

"Significant accumulations of snow are likely through Leinster and east-Ulster but snow-showers will be well scattered elsewhere", says the forecaster.

According to Met Eireann it will remain cold and windy in Louth today with highest temperatures of only 1 to 3 degrees in blustery easterly winds.

A status orange weather warning has been issued for 10 counties, while a status yellow weather warning has been issued for the entire country.
