There is a whiteout in Portlaoise this morning as the beast from east dumps more snow on the five to 10 cms that fell over night.
Laois remains under a Status Orange warning but a Status Red weather warning has been extended to other parts of Leinster.
Snow showers will continue today, most frequent over the east of the country & on south coasts with further accumulations. Further west snow showers will be more isolated. It will be a cold day with daytime temperatures remaining around freezing in fresh & gusty easterly winds. pic.twitter.com/tCotKduUFf— Met Éireann (@MetEireann) February 28, 2018
