Put the macs away but gloves have to stay as cold weather set to continue
A milder morning greeted the nation this morning but it’s not time to hang up your scarf and gloves just yet.
Although the rain is set to clear, the cold weather will continue for the rest of the week.
The temperatures will remain low with cold nights and sharp morning frosts.
However, the days should be mostly dry with light scattered showers.
“The rain this morning is clearing quite slowly southwards,” Met Eireann forecaster Evelyn Cusack told independent.ie.
“Once the rain will clear it will brighten up and the country can expect sunny spells.
“It will remain cold and windy over the north-east of the country.”
AA Roadwatch report road temperatures to be “well above zero” this morning but motorists are advised to be extra careful of cyclists and pedestrians as it remains foggy.
Met Eireann have issued a wind warning for Ulster and parts of Leinster, warning motorists that high-sided vehicles are especially vulnerable on open or exposed roads.
