MET Eireann has issued a weather warning for Limerick with a risk of thundery downpours and strong gusts possible.

The status yellow weather advisory for the whole country suggests that the snow and ice will give way to a spell of wet and windy weather during Monday evening and night.

The weather, with a risk of thundery downpours, will sweep eastwards over the country. Gusts between 90 and 110km/h are likely to occur in Atlantic, southern and later eastern coastal fringes for a time. 

Additional accumulations of snow are likely during the period also, but likely mainly in parts of west Ulster and north Connacht.

The alert is valid from 5pm this Monday until 6am Tuesday.
