WEATHER UPDATE: Cold night ahead as temperatures set to drop as low as -4c degrees

Cold weather ahead

As the last of the snow continues to thaw, the weather remains quite chilly. 

According to Met Eireann, tonight will be mostly dry with good clear spells, but later tonight mist will thicken into fog and may become dense by morning.

It will turn very cold as lowest temperatures fall to between zero and -3 degrees generally, but locally -4 degrees leading to a widespread sharp to severe frost with icy stretches.

It was a cold and frosty morning, but there will be sunny spells and scattered showers with just the odd heavy one, but showers will become isolated by evening.

Top temperatures will be 7 to 9 degrees in mainly moderate westerly breezes later veering west to northwest.
