Icy roads expected as a cold front sets in overnight

Update: Met Eireann has shortened the weather warning to expire at 11am on Tuesday morning.

Be on the lookout for icy roads and slippery conditions tonight and tomorrow as cold weather sweeps in.

Met Éireann is warning people to be wary if travelling as flurries of snow and ice are expected to accumulate on untreated surfaces.

A Status Yellow weather warning has been issued for all of Ireland from tonight.

Scattered sleet and snow showers are expected, most frequently in Connacht and Ulster, but with some in the east and midlands and the odd flurry in the south.

Accumulations of 1cm to 2cm of snow and ice are expected to gather on untreated surfaces over the next day.

The weather warning applies from 9pm on Monday night and will remain in effect until 7pm on Tuesday evening.

By the end of Tuesday it’s predicted that wintry showers will be confined to the Northern edge of the country.
