The warning is valid from Thursday, December 7 4pm to 6pm Friday, December 8.

The only county that has not received a warning is Galway.

The warning states: "This could lead to road, rail and air travel delays, with the potential for vehicles to become stranded or public transport to be cancelled".

Forecasters have said temperatures will drop to zero or below overnight for most of the country. Frost may linger in places and temperatures at best will range 1 to 3 degrees.

Saturday is expected to be a mostly dry but very cold day with varying cloud and sunny spells.

Meanwhile, a status yellow wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry will remain in place until 8pm tonight. It'll stay cold, but bright.

Maximum temperatures 6 to 9 Celsius early on, but it will turn much colder, with strong and gusty winds up to gale force along northern coasts.

A weather front from the north is to hit the country in the next few days with Friday set to be one of the coldest days of the winter to date.

In the same week that Met Éireann has predicted snowfall and icy roads in some parts of the country, new research by Liberty Insurance suggests almost three in four Irish drivers (74%) do not feel confident when driving in poor weather conditions.
