Motorists urged to use caution as cold snap sets in

Motorists are being advised to use caution on the counties roads tonight and tomorrow morning as the latest cold snap grips the country.

MET Eireann issued a Status Yellow Snow and Ice Warning earlier today, which will remain in place until 11am on Sunday.

Snow was reported on higher ground in Wicklow today.

AA roadwatch posted “Localised accumulations of hail or snow may lead to hazardous driving conditions. Remember it takes much longer to stop on icy roads, so slow down, leave yourself extra room to brake and keep all maneuvers gentle.”
