The forecaster says scattered showers of hail, sleet and snow will lead to hazardous travelling conditions in some parts.

"Showers will be most widespread in the west and north of the country where some accumulations are likely. Isolated thunderstorms will occur also," states the nationwide warning which was issued this Wednesday afternoon.

In its latest forecast for Munster, Met Éireann says temperatures will range from 5 to 8 degrees on Thursday afternoon. However, it will be much colder tomorrow evening and overnight.
