PEOPLE ARE BEING urged to take care on the roads this morning as icy and snowy conditions have been reported in many parts of the country.

A Met Éireann Status Yellow snow/ice warning for the entire country remains in place until 10am this morning.

Today is set to be another cold today with frost and ice widespread this morning. 

Scattered wintry showers will occur early on, but these will be mainly confined to the north and west by late morning, and clear most areas by the afternoon. 

The highest temperatures will be between 4 and 8 degrees.

AA Roadwatch says that icy conditions have been reported in parts of Cavan, Longford, Offaly, Galway and Clare.

Snow showers, meanwhile, are causing wet and slippery conditions in Wicklow, Laois, Kildare and Donegal.

Motorists are urged to slow down and avoid any harsh acceleration or braking in these conditions.
