Latest updates of roads from webcams. Where snow is cleared there is a light thaw but heavy showers are covering back in at times as you can see on the N81 image from Tallaght.
Post any road updates in comments please.
Snow showers expected up to 6pm in some areas but turning lighter through the afternoon with light thaw where snow is cleared.
Live update at 10am Sunday 18th March with snow still falling
Good morning from a snowy Tankardstown.
Showers hit many areas overnight and showers will continue on and off for several more hours yet with the Orange Warning for Eastern coastal counties extended up to 12 noon today.
Many of the showers are dying out as they hit Carlow but they are making inland into Kildare and Laois etc as the radar shows.
Images show the local R727 here in Tankardstown and the N81 in Baltinglass and Tallaght along with the M7 in Kildare.
As you can see there is lying snow on the roads so any unnecessary journeys should be avoided for and if you have to head out take extreme care with breaking distances much longer than normal.
Post comments with photos of your area so others can be kept informed.
I’ll have a live update in next 2 hours.
