Weather Warning

Following on from Met Eireann’s Orange Weather Warning, Laois County Council wishes to advise that due to the expected significant falls of snow on Saturday night and throughout Sunday, accumulations of 4 to 8 cm are expected quite widely with greater totals possible, an extreme frost of minus 4 degrees C is expected Sunday night and Monday morning which will lead to treacherous conditions on roads due to compacted snow and ice.

Extreme caution is advised when travelling and all drivers are asked to slow down and drive in a manner appropriate to the conditions on the road.
