We’re being warned to prepare for the worst that the Beast from the East and Storm Emma have to throw at us.

All schools in Tipperary are to close tomorrow and Friday.

Met Eireann has issued a Status Red weather warning for the Premier County along with all other counties in Munster and Leinster with blizzard like conditions likely.

It comes into force at 4pm tomorrow afternoon and continues until midday on Friday.

Ger Walsh is co-ordinator of Tipperary County Councils Severe Weather Team which met earlier.
