Motorists warned of ‘hazardous’ roads following sleet and frost overnight
It’s chilly out there, folks.
And if you’re defrosting your windscreen this morning, Met Éireann is advising motorists to be extra careful on the roads.
In an update to its Status Yellow – Ice warning for Ireland, Met Éireann has warned of “hazardous conditions due to freezing temperatures including icy stretches on roads and paths” following sleet and snow flurries in Munster overnight.
The warning is valid until 10am this morning.

After a frosty start, forecasters say that patchy falls of rain, sleet and snow will clear away through the morning to leave a cold, dry day with a mix of cloud and sunny spells and highest temperatures of just four to six degrees in Cork.
We’re in for a very cold and frosty Tuesday night too, with lowest temperatures of -2 to 0 degrees expected after dark.
