Met Éireann fog warning

A MET Office weather warning for fog is still in place this morning with thick fog still expected in many parts of the county.

A Met Éireann forecaster last night warned that the same areas that were submerged by the storm could be flooded again.

The national meteorological service say there will be very poor visibility, with fog lingering in many midland area, which will become more extensive and dense this evening and for a time tonight.

The warning was originally valid to 10am Thursday, January 11 but Met Éireann has since updated this and kept the warning in place until 2am on Friday morning.

They want people to slow down and use fog lights, remembering to turn them off once the fog has cleared.

The meteorological office expects rather windy conditions tomorrow, with strong and gusty southeasterly winds given.

Heavy hail and snow is expected across the country, with a risk also of ice. Lowest temperatures are expected to be 4° to 8°. Top afternoon temperatures of 3° to 7° are given for the day.

"Fog will thin slowly later on Thursday morning, although some patches may persist into the afternoon in the west of the warning area".
