The agency said there is a risk of glazed ice on roads on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Roads exceptionally slippery in Ida-Viru County
Road maintenance teams have been unable to clear roads to the usual standard in the northeast on Tuesday afternoon.
A blizzard and strong winds carried away salt and sand scattered to stop vehicles from skidding.
Road conditions are not good on the Tallinn-Narva highway between the Aseri and Kohtla-Järve intersections, the Transport Agency said. Passing is difficult on the secondary roads in the Aa and Saka regions.
The agency is implementing an extraordinary maintenance regime until 8 a.m. on Wednesday morning.
Road conditions can be viewed on the tark.ee live traffic website.
