DONEGAL County Council is urging all motorists to take extra care on the roads as showers of sleet, snow, rain and hail is forecasted to continue for the rest of the day and into tomorrow.
It is expected that temperatures will fall close to zero tonight and there is a high risk of icy roads in most parts of the county.
All 23 of the Councils gritters have been deployed since early this morning and will continue to be deployed on all routes throughout the rest of the day and into the night.
