Dublin could see snow today with a yellow ice warning for the entire country currently in place.

Wintry showers, black ice and freezing rain are on the cards.

The warning will last until midday while a status yellow low temperature and ice warning for Ireland will run from 10pm tonight until 10am tomorrow morning.

Met Éireann says conditions will be hazardous with a sharp to severe frost, icy surfaces and temperatures widely falling to minus 4 degrees.

The cold snap is expected to last into the weekend and early next week with the mercury dropping to as low as minus 6 degrees at night.

The Road Safety Authority is advising motorists to slow down.

Siobhan Ryan is a Meteorologist with Met Éireann;

"Obviously it's very cold, it's icy and we've got a band of precipitation currently sinking down from the north of Ireland, now there's a real mix of rain, sleet and some snowfall embedded in that and also the potential for some black ice."
