A national ‘low temperature’ warning has been issued.

MET ÉIREANN HAS issued a ‘yellow alert’ low temperature weather warning — with conditions dropping down as low as minus six tomorrow night.

Temperatures are set to fall to minus four overnight tonight, with frost and ice developing widely.

We can expect dense fog in many areas by dawn too.

Tomorrow, according to the weather service, will be a “dry day with little or no wind”.

However, overnight fog and frost will be slow to clear and may linger throughout the day in some places.

Temperatures won’t rise above around 6 degrees, either tomorrow or on Monday.

After another freezing cold night, conditions should improve a little by Tuesday.

And apparently we’ll be back in double-digits by the weekend, and the New Year celebrations.

Freezing conditions and lingering ice caused major transport problems in the north-east and midlands this morning.

Gardaí responded to four accidents on the M1, including an overturned truck between Junction 17 and 18.
