There will also be icy stretches with north and northwest counties most at risk.

Ireland's meteorological service is predicting that scattered snow showers will hit from late tomorrow and into Thursday night and Friday until about 4pm.

Met Eireann has issued a Snow-Ice Warning for Ireland.

Storm Caroline is also set to bring disruption today (Thursday) and Friday, with strong winds and heavy rain and some snow showers leading up to Sunday.

And as Storm Caroline looks set to blow in, gusts of up to 110kph are forecast for Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Kerry today as weather chiefs issued a Status Yellow warning until 11pm tonight.

Forecasters had earlier warned it will be "bitterly cold" for the rest of the week despite a mild day today. Some icy roads and footpaths also.

This follows a wind warning which has been put in place until this evening at 8pm. It'll stay cold, but bright.

"The showers will turn increasingly wintry with falls of hail and snow - especially in the north, and a few will push further south this evening".

"There will be a cold spell for the next ten days".

Commenting on the research, Deirdre Ashe, Director of Personal Lines at Liberty Insurance, said: "Our research reveals that as a country, we now lack confidence in our driving abilities in adverse weather conditions".
