Today in Kildare will be cold with wintery showers and sleet on high ground

Sleet showers expected on high ground today

There'll be a few sunny spells today, mixed with ongoing occasional wintry showers of hail, sleet and snow, according to Met Eireann. 

The weather forecaster said there will be further accumulations of snow locally over northern counties as well as on hills, mountains and higher ground elsewhere.

The wind is expected to ease during the course of the day. Highest temperatures of 3 to 6 degrees are forecasted.

Tonight will be dry, but very cold with a widespread severe air and ground frost along with icy patches.
