Met Office upgrades snow warning to amber

We could end up with 1-5cm of snow in some places and even up to a 10cm in other areas.

Met Eireann have warned of a cold snap set to take hold across the country while a status yellow weather warning was issued last night as Storm Caroline makes its way toward Irish shores.

A yellow warning is in place between 4am and 11.55pm on Sunday, December 10.

The weather forecaster said there will be further accumulations of snow locally over northern counties as well as on hills, mountains and higher ground elsewhere.

A weather front from the north is to hit the country in the next few days with Friday set to be one of the coldest days of the winter to date.

In addition to the weapons, there will be new winter supply drops, replacing rare supply drops for the duration of the event. Players will also receive a free Winter Siege Supply Drop for logging in to play each week of the Winter Siege event.

Met Éireann forecaster John Eagleton said there is unlikely to be snow during the daytime but snow will gather on higher ground.

Met Éireann says it will stay very cold for the rest of the week with wintry spells and frosty nights.

"There will be no snow during the day".

Lowest temperatures -2 to +2 degrees.

Maximum temperatures 6 to 9 Celsius early on, but it will turn much colder, with strong and gusty winds up to gale force along northern coasts.
