"These showers will fall as a mixture of rain, hail and snow at times, the snow mostly over higher ground".

And as heavy rain took over many roads were hit by localised flooding.

A yellow "danger to life" weather warning is in place for those areas until 10am, warning of ice and potentially hazardous travel. Some places are likely to see 1-3 cm of snow, mainly above 200 metres.

During the previous weather warning, Met Eireann said that snowmelt would contribute to worsening conditions on already saturated ground.

"Sunday will potentially be a better day as the showers from Saturday die out".

Don't put away your winter woolies just yet - Met Eireann has this afternoon issued a Status Yellow - Snow/Ice warning for all of Ireland, including Kilkenny!

He said that areas of the north that dodge the snow are still likely to see large amounts of rain and gale force winds.

A further 106 flood warnings are also still in place for some parts of England and Wales, while 155 flood alerts are now live.

The EA said that river levels have exceeded existing records with the Colne, Ribble, Calder, Aire, Trent, Severn, Wye, Lugg and Derwent among the many rivers where records have been broken.

Rainfall in some western areas of Northern Ireland in February has been approximately 160% of the monthly average, experts have said.

"Further spells of rain expected across England this week could cause further flooding, particularly in Yorkshire and the Midlands". Two severe flood warnings are out for the River Severn, one in Shrewsbury and another for Ironbridge.
