The weather is set to turn colder this weekend with a chance of ice and wintry showers.
Met Éireann has said weather warnings are likely to be issued, mainly for wind and rain.
The forecaster said it will turn cold across the country between Sunday evening and Thursday morning as an Arctic airflow becomes established, bringing sharp to severe frosts and icy stretches on roads and footpaths.
Some showers of hail, sleet and snow are expected with the potential for freezing fog.
Temperatures are set to drop to –2C in some parts of the country tomorrow night, leading to wintry falls on higher ground, with frost and icy stretches also expected to develop.
Sunday is expected to bring spells of sunshine, but there will also be falls of sleet at times and temperatures could drop to as low as -4C.
Further low temperatures are also forecast on Monday night into Tuesday morning, with pockets of freezing fog in some areas and lows of -3 or -4C.
Average temperatures over the next week are forecast to be slightly below normal for January.Tags:
