AS temperatures continue to plunge across Ireland, Met Eireann has issued its third weather alert in as many days.
The forecaster has put out a status yellow weather warning, cautioning of low temperature and ice for Limerick and the rest of the country.
It says hazardous icy conditions are likely in places, with a widespread severe frost and pockets of freezing fog.
Conditions in the west and northwest will improve from early Saturday morning.
The weather caution – which follows two straight days of yellow warnings – is valid from 5pm tonight and expires at midday tomorrow lunchtime.
