MOTORISTS are being warned to drive with car today after a heavy overnight frost caused long tailbacks on many routes earlier.
At one stage traffic was tailed back from Mountain Top in Letterkenny all the way to Illistrin.
The frost will lift later – but Met Eireann says roads in rural areas will be treacherous again this afternoon as rain turns to snow, especially in the hills.
“Some heavy spells of rain are likely at times accompanied by blustery winds. However the wind and rain will ease off later. Cold, with highest afternoon temperatures ranging 3 to 9 degrees Celsius – coldest in the north, with some hill snow,” is the latest update.
