A status yellow weather warning for low temperatures and ice has been issued for Galway and most counties in the Republic this afternoon.

The warning will begin this evening, Wednesday, at 10pm and remain in place overnight until 10am on Thursday.

Thursday will be mostly dry, and some bright spells will develop again after the frost, ice and fog clear away in the morning.

Cloud will increase from the west during the afternoon though, with some patchy drizzle at times.

It will also turn breezier through the day as light to moderate southerly winds increase fresh to strong. Highest temperatures of 8 to 10 degrees are forecast for Thursday.
