ROAD CONDITIONS remain slippery in parts of the country again this morning after temperatures dipped below zero overnight.

AA Roadwatch is warning drivers in the midlands and north-west to be particularly careful on the roads today.

Conditions around the Youghal by-pass and between Youghal Bridge and Rincrew roundabout in Co Cork are icy this morning, while black ice has been reported around Murrintown and Cleariestown in Co Wexford, Navan, Co Meath and the Carrick on Suir to Kilkenny Road (R697) in Co Kilkenny.

The Dublin to Cavan Road (M3) at Kells and between Dunshauglin and Navan is icy, and the AA is also warning of ice on secondary roads around Cavan town and in sheltered areas around Monaghan town. Drivers in counties Roscommon, Westmeath and Donegal need to exercise particular caution while driving this morning, particularly around Glenties and the Kilbeggan to Mullingar Road.

Met Éireann says the weather will be generally showery today, with rain falling as sleet on high ground in Ulster. The weather service is forecasting a slight respite in the cold, though, in the coming 24 hours and conditions are expected to be milder tomorrow.
