It’s chilly out there.
And according to Met Éireann, we’ll be needing the winter woollies for a while yet, with temperatures dipping below zero again this week.
The national forecaster says we can expect a dry and clear night tonight with lows of -2 to 0 degrees and widespread frost and icy stretches.
Thursday will be “cold and crisp” so take extra care on the roads, where the morning’s frost and ice patches will clear slowly. It will be dry for much of the day with isolated showers.
‘Milder in the south’
“Cloud will thicken from the west in the afternoon with rain moving into western counties towards evening with some falls of sleet or wet snow in places for a time.” said a forecaster.
The rain will break up into showers overnight on Thursday with some turning wintry. It will be cold once again across the country, but slightly milder further south with temperatures above zero.
