MOTORISTS ACROSS THE country have been warned to drive with caution this morning as a nationwide Status Yellow fog warning has been extended until midday. 

The warning was issued by Met Éireann last night, when it came into effect at 10pm. It has now been extended and will remain in place until midday. 

AA Ireland has urged motorists to drive with extra care, using fog lights, but also reminded drivers to turn them off when they’re no longer necessary.

Met Éireann says it expects fog to clear slowly during the morning, and that it will be dry but cloudy in most areas today.

The forecaster also expects a little patchy light rain or drizzle in places, with maximum temperatures 7 to 10 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, it remains foggy across Ulster although the Met Office has not issued a warning for the North. Motorists travelling there are still urged to drive cautiously until fog clears later this morning.

AA Roadwatch has reported heavy traffic around the country this morning. The latest updates can be found here
