A snow-ice warning for Ireland comes into effect this afternoon as Storm Caroline begins to pass close to the north-west coast.

Hours after issuing a weather warning for seven counties in light of the expected arrival of Storm Caroline on Thursday, Met Éireann have issued a second status yellow wind warning for four counties that comes into effect on Wednesday.

The warning is also in place for Mayo, Donegal and Kerry.

Severe winds will affect areas over Scotland, but Met Eireann warned that the storm will also generate strong, blustery winds of Ireland.

Wednesday's warning (in place from 6am to 11pm) predicts southerly winds of 50-65km/h with gusts of up 90-110km/h in coastal areas. It forecast minimum temperatures of between minus 2C and 2C.

The weather will take a turn in the next 24 hours, and it's set to become bitterly cold for the next few days.

Clear spells are forecast for Thursday night, with scattered rain, hail and snow showers, with accumulations of snow possible particularly in the north and northwest. "Motorists will need to slow down for their own safety, resulting in longer journey times, but you will also see more cars on the roads in affected areas", Elaine O'Sullivan, acting editor of AA Roadwatch stated. As a result, additional caution on routes used by cyclists and pedestrians will be needed.
