Freezing fog, icy stretches and snow: Met Eireann issue weather warning for the entire country

Emily Mullen

Wrap up well.

A Status Yellow low temperature and ice warning for Ireland has been put in place until noon today as temperatures dropped significantly overnight.

Met Eireann issued three weather warnings yesterday as the country braved the first of the extreme cold this winter, with the current warning in place from 10pm last night.

The Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said that it “is highly unlikely” some home will experience blackouts with farms and small businesses not being “ruled out” either.

A separate Status Yellow snow and ice warning for Donegal also began at 9pm last night and is to remain in place until midday Saturday as the county experiences scattered sleet and snow showers.

A Status Yellow snow and ice warning for Dublin and Wicklow was lifted at 6am this morning after the two counties saw wintry showers with snow in places.
