Drivers have been warned of icy conditions on the roads this morning after temperatures dipped overnight. 

Met Eireann said the Status Yellow – Ice warning that was issued in the early hours of this morning will remain in place until 10am.

“Some icy stretches expected on Friday morning,” Met Eireann warned. “It will be a cold, bright and blustery day with sunny spells and scattered showers.

“Some of the showers will be wintry with a possibility of hail and thunder. Maximum afternoon temperatures generally ranging 4 to 7 degrees in brisk west to northwest winds”

Tonight showers will become isolated with frost forming in some areas as temperatures dip back to between zero and +4 degrees.

“However, cloud will increase from the west overnight and temperatures will rise. Outbreaks of rain will then develop in the west and north of the country.”

Meanwhile, tomorrow looks set to be a rather cloudy and wet day with outbreaks of rain.

The rain will be most persistent in the west and north of the country with the best of any dry or bright interludes in the east and south. Maximum temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees in strong west or southwest winds along with gales on exposed coasts.

Outbreaks of rain will continu overnight, gradually pushing south over the country allowing colder and showery conditions to move in across northern counties.

Sunday looks set to be a chilly and blustery day with widespread showers and some sunny spells.

A few hail or sleet showers will occur over hills in the north. A few showers early on Sunday night along with rather chilly conditions initially will see lows of 1 to 4 degrees.
