MET Eireann has issued a Status Yellow weather warning as the cold snap continues to bite.

Temperatures nationwide are expected the fall as low as -3C or -4C, however in some parts of the north and east temperatures may even fall lower.

The temperatures will lead to nationwide frost and ice overnight.

Met Eireann said: “It will be very cold and frosty tonight. There will be some hail, sleet and snow showers on northern and eastern coasts.”

Tomorrow will be mainly sunny – which will help frost clear gradually throughout the morning.

However temperatures may only rise two or three degrees above freezing.

Atlantic coastal areas will escape the worst of the cold, with temperatures set to rise to 6C.

The rest of the week will be very cold, but dry.
