The weather warning follows the country-wide advisory that was put into place on Friday.

"During Tuesday we'll get some snow showers developing along the east coast, and then as we go into Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the snow will become more widespread across the country".

All signs are pointing towards a wild week on the weather front next week.

Met Éireann has issued a stark update to its weather advisory for the bitter cold front that is set to hit this week.

For the rest of the week, temperatures will remain cold but will rise above freezing for the rest of the week.

Some places, particularly along exposed coastal areas, will also see blustery conditions and wintry showers of sleet and hail.

Today we will enjoy spells of sunshine with the Six Nations rugby clash between Ireland and Wales at the Aviva Stadium likely to see largely calm and sunny, albeit cold, conditions. Roads will be slippery, icy and have black ice on them.

The full force of the Scandinavian-Siberian front will take a firm frigid grip from tomorrow before the mercury plummets on Tuesday with overnight temperatures possibly dropping to as low as -4°c.

Winds sweeping across Siberia from the North Pole will bring sub-zero temperatures and biting winds.

"Parts of Ireland will also see a widespread and severe ground frost".

"There will be a real hard frost at night time".

Gardaí urged motorists to drive with care, particularly in the morning along secondary roads.

Road salting and gritting operations will resume next week in light of the dramatic change in forecast weather conditions.
