Another weather warning has been issued for Galway today, with icy conditions expected overnight, with added risk from rain freezing.
Met Eireann has issued a Status Yellow Ice Warning for much of the country, which will be in effect from 5pm on Saturday until 9am on Sunday morning.
“Ice in places leading to hazardous travelling conditions, especially on untreated roads and paths.”
“Rain tonight, with wintry falls locally, will fall on already frozen surfaces leading to further development of icy conditions for a time.”
The warning has been issued for Galway and all of Connacht, along with counties Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Wicklow, Cavan, Donegal, Monaghan, Clare, Limerick, Tipperary.
This will hopefully be the last gasp of the cold snap, as warmer temperatures are expected to prevail from tomorrow in the week leading up to Christmas.
