Further falls of snow, meanwhile, have led to icy stretches on roads and paths and some accumulations, especially in Connacht and Ulster today. 

Minimum temperatures of -2 to +2 degrees in fresh southwest to west breezes with an extensive frost.

Tuesday will start cold and frosty with icy stretches on untreated surfaces and some lying snow.

There will be a mix of sunshine and scattered wintry showers, the showers frequent over the western half of the country with a risk of hail and thunder there.

Highest temperatures will be between 4 to 7 degrees in fresh and gusty westerly winds, strong along Atlantic coasts.
