Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow ice warning for Ireland from 6pm tomorrow to 10am on Tuesday.

The forecaster warned of hazardous conditions, including icy stretches on roads and paths, due to the freezing temperatures.

The outlook is for very cold weather until at least Thursday with frost, ice and some snowfall possible.

Tonight will see a mix of cloud and clear spells with well scattered showers.

It will be cold with lowest temperatures of -1 to three degrees with a slight frost under clearer skies.

Tomorrow will see highest afternoon temperatures in the north of just four or five degrees.

It will be milder further south in the early afternoon with temperatures reaching six to nine degrees.

Tomorrow night will turn very cold with temperatures of zero to -4 degrees leading to widespread sharp frost and possible icy stretches.

Tuesday is also set to be very cold as an Arctic airflow feeds down to Ireland with some well scattered sleet or snow showers streaming into the north and northwest.
