Caution is needed this morning as Met Éireann warns of 'treacherous conditions' in Munster.
There are two Status Yellow weather warnings in place for the entire country: a Low Temperature/Ice Warning, in place until 10am; and a Snow/Ice Warning, in place until 11am.
The forecaster said Cork will see a cold and icy start away from Atlantic coastal districts.
"Light rain, sleet snow will clear south during the morning with treacherous conditions on untreated surfaces," it said.
Snow has been reported in numerous areas of the city and county.

In other news, traffic is reportedly quite busy inbound on the N20 Commons Rd before Blackpool Shopping Centre.
It is slow on the Lower Glanmire Rd inbound passing Tivoli according to AA Roadwatch.
Met Éireann have forecast a clearance to sunshine and well-scattered wintry showers will follow from the north for the rest of the day.
Maximum afternoon temperatures should generally range from 0 to 3 degrees but will be a little less cold in Atlantic coastal fringes with moderate northwest breezes.
