A snow-ice warning has been issued for Ireland for the coming days.
Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow wind warning for Galway for Wednesday and Thursday, with gusts of up to 110km/h forecast.
North and northwest counties are said to be most at risk, as well as higher ground elsewhere.
Thursday is set to be a cold, windy day, with widespread wintry showers.
Met Éireann says scattered snow showers will occur from late Thursday and into Friday.
It should clear up by Saturday but there is still a risk of wintry showers.
The snow-ice warning of Ireland will last well into Thursday afternoon and will be renewed briefly come nightfall until Friday at 4pm.
"Minimum temperatures will be between -2C and 2C, with frost and icy stretches, especially in places sheltered from the fresh north-westerly wind".
AA Roadwatch, the traffic monitoring service, is also warning motorists to expect delays and allow additional journey time if conditions take a turn for the worst.
