A snow-ice warning has been issued for Donegal tomorrow as temperatures are set to dip.
The status yellow warning was also issued by Met Éireann for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Sligo, Tipperary and Waterford.
“Falls of snow from Monday evening, with accumulations totalling up to 3cm possible in some areas, leading to treacherous road conditions by Tuesday morning,” the forecaster says.
The warning will come into effect at 6pm tomorrow (Monday) and will remain in place until 6am on Tuesday.
The regional forecast suggests that tonight will also be nippy with lowest temperatures of 1 to -2 degrees, with widespread frost and a risk of ice on untreated surfaces.
To the east of the country tonight temperatures will dip to -4, with severe frost developing in inland areas.
Donegal County Council gritters will be out from 6pm tonight on selected routes. A spokesperson for the Council urges motorists to assume that no road is ice-free.
