Temperatures will fall considerably on Thursday evening.

It's the third status yellow warning issued by Met Eireann over the past few days with two status yellow wind alerts in place for Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Kerry for today (Wednesday) and Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry for tomorrow (Thursday).

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". There may be a light dusting of snow around the country, and it may stick in places in the north and northwest.

Meanwhile, the Road Safety Authority has warned motorists to expect the unexpected with high winds and icy conditions.
