Take care on the roads as cold snap forecast

Aughrim based Wicklow Weather are advising motorists to take care on the counties roads as a cold snap is on the way.

A very cold night ahead with lows of -3c. Any damp or shaded roads will see widespread black ice on them.

Upland road networks should be avoided over the coming days due to low temperatures.

Remember stopping distances are 10 times longer on snow and ice and gentle maneuvers are the key to safe driving. Use major routes as they are more likely to have been gritted than secondary routes.

Check on the elderly and keep the pets indoors!!
