Met Éireann has warned of rainfall totalling up to 40mm by midday on Saturday, which will lead to flooding in places.

"Patchy fog" is expected to reform in place overnight according to the Met Office, with warnings that visibility could fall below 100 metres in place.

Today will be cold, with fog lingering in many inland areas this afternoon.

Issued at - and valid from - 12:00pm today (Thursday, January 11), the weather warning will last until 2:00am tomorrow morning.

AA Roadwatch issued an alert to all motorists nationwide this Thursday.

They want people to slow down and use fog lights, remembering to turn them off once the fog has cleared.

Friday is forecast to be rather windy, with strong and gusty southeasterly winds.

Thick winter mists will engulf swathes of the nation into tomorrow afternoon with some places unlikely to clear through the day. Windy and mostly cloudy elsewhere too, with the rain spreading eastwards all the while and with some heavy rain in places by dawn. This will become more extensive again after dark.

Britain is wrapping up for another chilly night with temperatures expected to drop to freezing widely with lows of -2C (28.4F) or -3C (26.6F) in rural regions.
