Warning as temperatures set to drop to -3C in places


Weather warnings will be in place for Ireland amid plummeting temperatures of -4C in parts.

Met Éireann has said it will be very cold overnight and into early tomorrow morning with the danger of icy patches and some freezing fog.

The forecaster issued two separate Status Yellow Low Temperature and ice warnings.

The first warning is for Leinster, Munster as well as counties Cavan, Monaghan, Galway and Roscommon, where it will be very cold overnight and tomorrow morning.

The second warning is for counties Donegal, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo with Met Éireann also forecasting a few sleet or snow showers in places.

The warnings are due to come into effect from 7pm until 11am tomorrow.

Met Éireann advised that the lowest temperatures overnight will be between -3 and +1C, possibly colder in the midlands.

Temperatures are forecast to drop further to -4c in parts tomorrow and Tuesday night.

In Northern Ireland, the PSNI told motorists this morning that they should exercise caution on the roads following freezing overnight temperatures, particularly in rural areas.

A spokeswoman said: “Reduce your speed, and increase your stopping distance from the vehicle in front.”

It came as the UK Met Office issued a snow and ice warning for Northern Ireland between 3am on tomorrow until 9am on Tuesday.

It said snow showers would bring some disruption, warning the public to expect that some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times on services.

The forecaster said there will probably be some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces such as untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

A separate yellow-level snow warning will come into effect for the north-most parts of the region for all of Wednesday and Thursday.
