CORK City Council is advising the public not to make "unnecessary journeys" tomorrow due to severe weather conditions.
If they must travel, pedestrians and motorists are advised to plan their journey carefully and leave plenty of time for travel as sleet and snow early tomorrow will lead to icy paths and roads.
Director of Operations, David Joyce said:
“Cork City Council is also advising that a warm front is due to cross over the city later on Thursday and this may lead to flooding in parts of the city - due to the combination of rainfall and melting snow," he said.
