Cork County Council Update on Status Yellow Snow/Ice Warning

A Met Éireann Status Yellow Snow/Ice warning is in effect and valid until 12:00 tomorrow Friday 10/03/2023. Rain, sleet and snow will spread northwards across the country today accompanied by strengthening winds. Accumulations of snow are considered likely in many areas along with icy conditions.

Cork County Council crews will continue to salt designated priority routes but are advising motorists to exercise extreme caution. Conditions like these can be challenging to treat with intermittent rainfall/snow and freezing conditions likely between salting treatments that may result in icy conditions.

Weather conditions will be disruptive for travel tomorrow. Driving conditions may be particularly hazardous tomorrow morning during the busy commute morning times of 6am to 10am

  • Any travel arrangements should be planned carefully in advance of setting out
  • All road users should be aware of the potential for hazardous travelling conditions, particularly on untreated roads and allow extra time for all road journeys
  • Motorists should slow down and be aware of the dangers posed by poor visibility during periods of falling sleet/snow
  • Pedestrians should be aware for the potential of slips and falls in icy conditions particularly on untreated roads and footpaths
