Met Eireann Ireland weather as 'hazardous' warning issued with '270-mile snow bomb' hitting Europe

A status yellow warning remains in place for Dublin and several other counties this morning as Ireland faces a mixed week on the horizon.

The fog warning will remain in place until 10am for the capital and for Cavan, Donegal, Monaghan, Kildare, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Leitrim, Roscommon, Sligo.

Met Eireann say: "Dense fog in places will lead to hazardous driving conditions."

Following the release of their monthly report, Met Eireann added that the rest of March is set to be a mixed month with "unsettled weather conditions" sitting alongside "good dry periods also."

Across the pond though, the UK Met Office has said that "a white Easter is more likely than a white Christmas" with a 270-mile 'snow bomb' set to arrive in Europe over the coming weeks.

Today will be frosty and foggy in Dublin followed by a dry day with sunny spells.  A cold start will clear with temperatures of 11C hitting during the day.

It will be mainly dry overnight with clear skies and light winds as fog and frost forms again with temperatures dropping to 0C.

Here's how the next few days are looking according to Met Eireann. 

Tomorrow: "On Wednesday, it will be rather cloudy with the chance of a few light showers drifting in but overall lots of dry weather once again. Maximum temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees in light northeast winds."

Wednesday night: "Mostly dry overnight with a mix of cloud and clear spells. There'll be some mist patches and a slight frost will form where skies remain clear. Minimum temperatures of 0 to 3 degrees in light northeast breezes."


Thursday: "Rather cloudy and feeling quite chilly in a moderate easterly breeze. Much of the country will be dry but there'll be a few light showers about. Highest temperatures generally ranging 5 to 8 degrees but reaching 9 or 10 degrees in southwest Munster. On Thursday night, it will be mostly dry with some clear spells but overall plenty of cloud. A few light showers in the east and south. Quite cold with minimum temperatures of -1 to +4 degrees with frost developing where skies remain clear."
