Motorists have been warned of treacherous travelling conditions overnight and into the morning, due to ice.
Met Éireann has predicted that a mix of rain, sleet and snow will clear south over the country this evening and early tonight (Monday night) with a cold airmass following from the north.
"Ice is expected to form in some areas which may lead to treacherous travelling conditions overnight and into Tuesday morning," the weather forecaster warns.
Later this evening and early tonight, outbreaks of rain will continue to push south over the country whilst clearer and much colder conditions extend across northern counties as the rain clears.
Falls of sleet and snow are possible for a short time across parts of the Midlands and south.
A cold night is predicted with frost and patches of ice forming in some areas with lowest temperatures of -1 to +3 degrees.
A Weather Advisory has been issued for icy conditions overnight— Met Éireann (@MetEireann) January 3, 2022
The Advisory is valid from 8pm tonight to 9am tomorrow morning.
Please take care when travelling.
