Take it easy out there.
Met Éireann is forecasting a very cold start to the week, with frost and ice slowly clearing in the morning but lingering in some sheltered spots throughout the day on Monday.
A Status Yellow – Low Temperature/Ice warning remains in place for Munster, Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Galway, and Roscommon until 11am as Arctic air brings winter hazards such as icy stretches on roads and pavements.
The good news is it will stay dry in Cork with spells of winter sunshine, but highs will barely inch above 2 to 4 degrees.

According to the national forecast, the outlook is “very cold with widespread frost and ice” so keep that in mind if you’re travelling in the coming days.
“Rain, sleet, and snow will clear later on Tuesday with largely dry conditions following. However, showers of sleet and snow will affect the north and northwest at times.” said a forecaster.
Most areas will be dry on Monday night with frost and ice developing and lowest temperatures of -4 to 0 degrees.
Tuesday will be dry with sunny spells in the south, however, the rain will reach us later in the day and more frost and ice is expected on Tuesday night with lowest temperatures of -4 to -1 degrees.
Wednesday will be “bitterly cold with frost, ice, mist and fog slow to clear” and although it will be generally dry with spells of sunshine breaking through, temperatures will reach only 1 to 4 degrees in a light northwesterly breeze.
