MET ÉIREANN have warned of icy roads across Ireland as temperatures are set to drop below zero overnight.
While the west of Ireland through west Munster and Ulster is to experience heavy showers today, temperatures across the country will be below freezing tonight.
Today will also be a bright day with temperatures remaining at a steady 6 to 7 degrees throughout the country but widespread frost is to set in early this evening and into tonight.
Under clear cold skies tonight into early Friday morning, temperatures will drop between -2 to 1 degree, with northwesterly winds, with a frosty start to Friday through to the mid-morning too.
