CHILLING: Weather warning issued - Dundalk to be hit hard in coming days

Met Eireann have issued a 'Yellow Status' weather warning, and Dundalk is set to be hit hard. 

The warning comes as the area is set to be hit by several consecutive days of wintry weather, with the Cooley Peninsula set to take the brunt of it. 

According to Met Eireann: "Very cold wintry weather will develop from Wednesday night onwards.

"Showers will turn wintry in many places, from Wednesday evening to Saturday, with falls of sleet and snow expected. The heaviest of the snow fall is most likely over Ulster, Connacht, north Leinster and west Munster and especially so on high ground."

A 'Yellow' level weather alerts is to notify those who are at risk because of their location and/or activity, and to allow them to take preventative action. It is implicit that Yellow level weather alerts are for weather conditions that do not pose an immediate threat to the general population, but only to those exposed to risk by nature of their location and/or activity.
