Major cold snap continues as ice warning in place

A warning for low temperature and ice, with a Status Yellow level, has been issued across the country. Temperatures dropped to as low as -3C in some areas overnight, reports RTE.

Met Éireann predicts that frost and ice will continue throughout the day, which could lead to dangerous driving conditions and animal welfare problems.

The warning will remain in effect until midday tomorrow, and a Status Yellow fog warning is also in effect until the same time. Dense fog is reported in many areas, with some freezing fog as well, reports RTE.

The forecast also predicts that it will be very cold again tonight, with outbreaks of rain and sleet expected in parts of the southwest and south early in the night.

An arctic airflow is predicted to continue into next week, which will result in sharp to severe frosts and icy stretches on roads and footpaths. On Monday night, temperatures could drop to around -4C, reports RTE.
