ICE WARNING AS DONEGAL GETS FIRST BLAST OF WINTER

first_imgMOTORISTS have been warned about ice on many roads overnight after Donegal was hit by the first blast of winter.Snow on the hills, sleet and hail on lower ground and freezing temperatures overnight will leave many roads slippy, warned Met Eireann.“It’s very cold over the North West tonight,” said a Met Eireann spokesman, “A few showers feeding into Northern counties have been turning wintry on hills.“Overnight it will be chilly as the Northerly wind eases overland with temperatures falling to around freezing in many areas giving frost inland, especially in sheltered areas, and the risk of some icy patches on damp roads.”The spokesman said Saturday will start bright and frosty before wind and rain lashes Donegal on Saturday night.Driven by northerly winds it will feel bitterly cold. Sunday will see more persistent driving rain, again with northerly winds.Monday looks like being dry and clear – but it will remain cold. ICE WARNING AS DONEGAL GETS FIRST BLAST OF WINTER was last modified: October 26th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal DailyiceICE WARNING AS DONEGAL GETS FIRST BLAST OF WINTERsnow donegallast_img read more
