Large swathes of Mayo and the west of Ireland have woken to a dusting of snow this morning and Met Éireann is advising that wintry showers will continue through the morning with further accumulations possible.
After a cold and icy start, with snow lying in some areas leading to hazardous conditions, showers will become more isolated by afternoon with some sunny spells developing. Highest afternoon temperatures of just 2 to 4 degrees in mostly moderate northerly or variable breezes. However, in the west of Connacht on Sunday night, isolated wintry showers will continue, becoming more frequent by morning, with clearer skies further east. Patches of fog and a sharp to severe ground frost will form with lowest temperatures of 0 to -5 degrees. Light westerly winds will back southwesterly and increase moderate to fresh by morning.
Monday will see further showers, mainly of rain or sleet during the day mixed with dry and bright intervals. Highest temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees in a moderate to fresh southwest wind easing light to moderate westerly by evening.
