Met Éireann warn of hazardous driving conditions as freezing fog patches cover Ireland

Be careful out there.

If you're on the roads this morning, make sure to be extra cautious as Met Éireann has warned drivers of hazardous driving conditions.

The weather forecaster said that frost and fog patches will cover the country, leaving the roads icy and dangerous.

It said: "Frost and fog with some freezing fog patches will lead to hazardous driving conditions in parts of the country this morning.

"The frost and fog will gradually clear during the day to leave it dry with a mix of cloud and sunny spells. Highest afternoon temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees in light breezes which will vary in direction."

Meanwhile, tonight, temperatures are going to take a dip to -2 degrees with some light winds across the Atlantic coast.

"Dry and clear in most areas overnight with a fairly widespread frost. However, there will be more in the way of cloud in Atlantic coastal areas which will restrict a frost from developing there.

"Minimum temperatures of -2 to +4 degrees in mostly light southerly breezes, increasing moderate along Atlantic coasts."
