A LOW TEMPERATURE warning will remain in place until noon today.

Met Éireann has said it will be very cold with a widespread sharp to severe air and ground frost leading to some icy stretches.

Lowest air temperatures will range from zero to minus four degrees Celsius.

The severe frost and icy stretches will slowly clear in most areas, lingering into the afternoon in some sheltered places.

On a more positive note, there’ll be good sunshine during the morning. However, it’ll become cloudier in the west in the afternoon.

Today will be dry apart from the odd wintry shower in the north. Highest temperatures will only reach three to six degrees Celsius, with light breezes. Frost will quickly set in again after dark.

Tonight will be cold at first, especially over the eastern half of the country with widespread frost and icy stretches on untreated surfaces.

Lowest temperatures will range from minus one to plus four degrees Celsius. However, cloud will thicken from the west and southerly winds will strengthen, clearing the frost later in the night. Rain or drizzle will develop in the west around dawn.

Flooding risk 

Tomorrow will be wet and windy. Rain in the west will become persistent and will extend countrywide during the morning.

The rain will continue to be persistent through the afternoon and evening, with heavy falls in parts of Connacht and Munster leading to a risk of flooding.

Highest temperatures will range from seven to ten degrees Celsius with fresh to strong southerly winds, reaching gale force along Atlantic coasts in the afternoon.
