With the Status Yellow Snow and Ice warning remaining in place until Saturday, Met Éireann have warned that temperatures tonight could plummet to -6 degrees.

Last night saw temperatures drop to as low as -5.8 degrees in places, with some further wintry showers in places and snow accumulations on higher ground.

Colder conditions were due to the Status Yellow Snow/Ice Warning issued for the whole country, which remains in effect until 12pm Saturday, February 2nd. The AA have warned motorists to take care when using secondary and local routes, especially on higher ground.

They also warned that it can take up to 10 times longer to stop on snow/ice roads and advised motorists to slow down in affected areas and to “keep all manoeuvres gentle”. Is your farm prepared for the bad weather? Check out the list of tips for farming in the snow here.

Latest Forecast -
Met Éireann have warned that tonight, Thursday January 31st, could be the coldest of the week so far, with a maximum of 2 to 6 degrees during the day.

They warn that it will feel much colder due to an added wind chill caused by fresh to strong and gusty east to southeast winds. Later this evening and into tonight, Met Éireann warn of “further wintry falls”. These will be mainly confined to the east and south, with some snow accumulations likely.

"Some snow accumulations today on high ground over Leinster, Connacht and south Ulster. Tonight there will also be some accumulations of snow on lower levels over central and southern parts of Leinster and over east Munster." Met Éireann warned.

They advised that temperatures will range from 0 to -6 degrees, coldest in West Connacht and Ulster. They also warn of frosty and icy conditions as a result of dropping temperatures which they say will cause “treacherous conditions”.
