Road users are urged to take caution as temperatures continue to drop tomorrow evening, with a yellow ice warning issued for 18 counties and all of Connacht, reports RTE.

The Road Safety Authority said the low temperatures would cause unsafe conditions on roads and pavements.

Forecasters say it will be very cold, and in some areas the temperature may drop below -3 degrees Celsius, and the amount of snow and ice will increase.

The warning will remain in effect until noon on Friday.

Met Eireann said the weather would become increasingly cold over the next few days, with overnight temperatures below freezing in many areas and scattered showers in places.

It said current conditions indicate Monday and Tuesday will be cold but mostly dry.

The Office of Meteorology has also issued a yellow ice warning for Antrim, Armagh, Down, Tyrone and Derry from 5pm today until 10am tomorrow, reports RTE.
