The north coast is bracing for the coldest conditions, with wintry showers expected throughout the week ahead.
Tonight will see temperatures dipping again to lows of -1C, before a “very cold” Arctic airflow feeds down.
Monday’s overnight temperatures will plummet to lows of 0 and -4C. Tuesday will see well scattered sleet or snow showers and very low daytime temperatures also, and a “few wintry showers will continue near northern coasts overnight”.
Wednesday will have a very cold start with icy stretches, but with a good deal of dry bright sunshine about too.
Widespread wintry showers and lows of -2 to + 2 degrees are forecast for Wednesday night.
Met Eireann says there is some uncertainty to the details of the midweek forecast, which will be updated in due course.
