Take extra care on the roads today!

Met Éireann have issued a Status Orange weather alert this morning, with widespread fog forecast throughout the country.

The warning was issued in the early hours of this morning and will remain in place until early afternoon.

The National forecaster has said:

 "Fog will be fairly widespread this morning, most dense inland, away from coastal areas, leading to poor driving conditions."

AA Roadwatch have reported that the towns of Cavan, Bailieborough, Naas, Carrick-on-Shannon, Roscommon, Sligo, Monaghan and Mullingar are the worst affected.

Weather outlook:


Cold today. A foggy and locally frosty start, but the frost will soon clear, but the fog is likely to linger in some places into the afternoon. A few bright or short sunny spells, but generally cloudy and misty. Top afternoon temperatures 3 to 7 C., generally, but 8 to 10 C., in southern coastal counties.


Cold and misty tonight, with some fog and frost in places. But these largely clearing later, as southeasterly winds strengthen and bring in cloud from the Atlantic. Lowest temperatures -2 to plus 2 C.
