GET THOSE THERMALS out because Met Éireann is predicting a drop in temperatures tonight resulting in some serious frost and ice.

The forecast predicts the showers experienced earlier this morning will become isolated and confined to western coast later today.

Southerly winds will become increasingly ‘fresh’ and locally strong for a time but will veer southwest to west and moderate this afternoon with temperatures ranging from 6 to 9 degrees Celsius.

Tonight there will be showers along the Atlantic seaboard, though everywhere else will remain dry and mostly clear. Temperatures will drop as southwesterly breezes move in with lowest temperatures reaching -3 degrees Celsius.

Met Éireann said this will result in “sharp to severe ground frost and ice on untreated surfaces”.

However much of this will clear soon after dawn tomorrow morning with rain and drizzle spreading countrywide by early afternoon.
