Drivers have been advised to take care on the roads this morning as foggy conditions may affect visibility.

Met Eireann have issued a status orange fog warning to Connacht, Leinster, and counties Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Cork, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford.

The weather alert was issued last night, and will remain in place until midday today.

Drivers have been advised to slow down and use fog lights, but reminded to turn them off when no longer needed.

The fog will clear and some sunny spells will develop, but showers are expected in the south west.

The showery rain will extend northwards throughout the day, with some heavy, thundery bursts across Munster and highest temperatures ranging from 10C to 14C.

Temperatures will cool tonight, falling as low as 1C, and there will be some patches of fog.
