Drivers taking to the roads this morning are being warned to slow down and take extreme care.
Spokesperson for the Road Safety Authority, Brian Farrell has this advice for people out on the roads:
"Make sure your car is clear of all snow, you don't want it coming off in transit into the path of a vulnerable road user like a pedestrian or cyclist," he said.
"Take it handy and slow down, and leave an extra space between you and the car in front of you," he said.
A Yellow alert for snow and ice has also been put in place by the Met Office for Northern Ireland until 11am today.
It has also issued a Yellow weather warning for wind which will begin at 3pm on Tuesday and last until midnight.
