Meanwhile, another snow and ice warning has been issued to the entire island of Ireland.

Earlier this week, Met Eireann reported that Roscommon had the coldest temperatures of the winter so far, dropping to as low as -5.9 degrees on Saturday, January 2.

The national weather service also reported that temperatures could drop to as low as -7 this week, and while things didn’t get quite that cold, they did get remarkably close.

A weather station in Sligo reported that the temperatures drop to -6.3 on Tuesday night, marking a new lowest temperature of the winter.

Meanwhile, a snow and ice warning has been issued to the entire island of Ireland, as well as an additional status yellow weather warning just for the incoming low temperatures. Full details on that can be found here.

That warning will be in effect from 12.01am on Thursday morning until 9am that same morning.
