Further flurries are expected today.
According to Met Éireann, it will be freezing for the rest of this morning and “blustery with scattered wintry showers of sleet or snow” later today, although any snowfall is unlikely to stick around for long.
There will be a mix of cloud with some bright or sunny spells during the afternoon, but highest temperatures will range from just 1 to 3 degrees.
Forecasters have warned it will be a “bitterly cold” night tonight with a widespread sharp to severe frost setting in. It will be largely dry with long clear spells, but temperatures will drop to between -4 and -1 degrees with icy stretches forming.
A Weather Advisory remains in place for the entire country until tomorrow evening, with forecasters warning that Tuesday and Wednesday will be “very cold with temperatures in low single figures by day and with sharp or severe frosts and icy patches at night.”
Roads and paths could be icy too so take extra care if you’re heading out.
