COLD WEATHER WILL continue across the country for the next few days, as Ireland gets to grips with winter conditions as we enter November.

Temperatures last night dipped to -2 degrees Celsius in parts, but it’s set to get even colder tonight with Met Éireann predicting lows of -4 degrees in some places.

According to the forecaster, it’ll be a dry and sunny day in most parts of the country, with just a few isolated showers in the southeast early in the day.

Cloudless skies will lead to quite cold conditions, with highest temperatures of just 7 to 10 degrees, and a dry and clear start to the evening expected in most parts.

Lowest temperatures tonight will be -4 to 2 degrees Celsius, with frost and a risk of fog patches.

Cloud will increase over the west of the country and patchy light rain or drizzle can be expected there early tomorrow morning.
