A STATUS YELLOW weather warning remains in place for most of the country this morning as temperatures dipped below freezing in several counties overnight. 

Met Éireann said that the status yellow warning for 22 counties will remain in place until 10am this morning. The only counties to which the warning does not apply are Dublin, Wicklow, Wexford and Waterford.

Despite the freezing cold start to today, the national forecaster predicts that temperatures could reach as high as nine degrees today and that we’re also in for a relatively dry today. 

The forecast reads: “A cold start today with frost and patches of freezing fog slow to clear in places, leading to difficult driving conditions.

“A dry and sunny day is expected with highest temperatures generally 6 to 9 degrees, a good deal lower where fog lingers into the afternoon. Light variable winds will back southeasterly later in the day and freshen along Atlantic coasts.”

Met Éireann has forecast that conditions will become milder as the week goes on. Rain is expected later in the week.
