A dry cold day in Co. Kildare today

It'll be cold today

Patchy frost will is clearing now. Met Eireann says that it will be mostly cloudy today across the southern half of the country with scattered outbreaks of rain, heavy and persistent at times across southern counties, with the risk of spot flooding and local thunder. Some bright or sunny spells across the northern half of the country though, where it should remain largely dry. Another cool day with highs of 6 to 10 degrees Celsius (north to south). Easterly breezes will be brisk at times along south and southeast coasts, and mainly moderate inland.

Scattered outbreaks of rain early tonight will soon become confined to the southwest, with a few showers possible in the east later. Otherwise a lot of dry weather with mist or fog patches, and patchy frost developing where skies stay clear. Lowest temperatures 0 to 6 degrees Celsius, coldest away from southern counties. Northeast breezes will be mostly light overland.

It also looks set to be largely dry and cold for the weekend.
