Ice warnings for the whole of Ireland are in place until tomorrow morning.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow ice warning for Ireland until 10am tomorrow and the UK Met Office have a Yellow Snow and Ice Warning in place for all of Northern Ireland that will end at the same time.

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

For Northern Ireland, snow showers and icy patches will likely cause some travel disruption.

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

Temperatures will fall to between zero and -4 degrees tonight with a widespread sharp frost and icy stretches.

Tomorrow will start off cold and frosty with ice in places. The frost and ice will clear and it will be a cold, bright and mainly dry day with sunny spells.

Drivers are advised to clear windows and mirrors before setting off, to slow down in icy conditions and leave extra distance between the vehicle in front.

The Road Safety Authority said motorists should avoid oversteering, harsh braking and harsh acceleration and use the highest gear possible to avoid wheel spin.

Select a low gear when travelling downhill especially if through bends, the RSA added.

Cyclists and motorcyclists are advised to brake before corners and to wear gloves.

Pedestrians are reminded of the risk of slips and falls.

Met Éireann meteorologist Mark Bowe said temperatures should start to recover tomorrow, but will struggle to reach mid-single figures by the afternoon, before dropping to minus three or four again tomorrow night.

Speaking on RTÉ's Drivetime, he said there will be "plenty of icy stretches" and frost on the roads and footpaths.

"When you wake up tomorrow morning I think people should give extra time to prepare for their commute," he said.
