GOOD MORNING AND welcome to Wednesday’s liveblog.

We’ll be with you until just after 9am as another working day gets underway, so stick with us for the latest traffic, travel and weather updates from across the country.

Morning, everyone. Catherine Healy here on’s commuting liveblog, helping you get to where you need to go.

Spotted something we should know about? Email or tweet me @Chealy_.

Not while driving, obviously.

If you’re heading out today, you might want to bring a brolly. Met Éireann says we can expect rainy and cold weather with strong winds, as well as possible hail and thunder.

Highest temperatures will be around nine degrees.
