A cold day and night for Co. Kildare
Very cold with widespread frost and icy patches this morning and with lying snow in places, says Met Eireann. All areas will have good sunny spells today and any wintry showers will become more isolated by afternoon. Top temperatures 3 to 5 degrees generally.
Very cold tonight. Frost will set in quickly after dark, becoming severe, with fairly widespread ice. Mist and fog will form also, with some freezing fog in places. Becoming breezy and rather cloudy later, which should help to clear some of the fog and also reduce the ice over the southern half of the country. Some heavy rain will develop over Munster before dawn, with sleet or hill snow in places. Lowest temperatures -2 to -4 degrees.
