Met Éireann’s national status yellow warning for snow and ice remains in place until at least Saturday, with the country told to brace for another freeze tonight.
Motorists are being warned to take care throughout the day today after temperatures dropped to -3°C in places overnight.
According to Met Eireann the weather will be:
''Cold and increasingly windy today with remaining frost, ice and any fog clearing. Heavy outbreaks of rain will occur, especially along southern counties, with falls of sleet and snow at times inland, though mainly over high ground. Highest temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees (north to south) and feeling colder in a fresh to strong easterly wind.''
''Extremely cold this evening and overnight with brisk northeasterlies and further wintry falls; some snow accumulations possible on lower levels, mainly in the east and southeast of the province. Frost and icy conditions too, all resulting in treacherous conditions. Lowest temperatures of 0 to -3 degrees Celsius.''
And finally tomorrow:
''Friday will be a drier brighter day with lots of winter sunshine, but feeling raw in a northerly breeze. Highest temperatuers of only 3 to 5 degrees Celsius.''
Makes sure to wrap up nice and warm!
