It will be as cold as minus six degrees in some areas tonight

Meanwhile a ‘yellow alert’ fog warning is in place for Ireland for between 10am and 6pm today.

TEMPERATURES WILL DROP as low as minus six overnight, as the cold snap continues.

And while a high pressure will dominate Irish weather for the next few days, bringing settled conditions, it’s likely to become milder next week.

It will stay between 7 and 10 degrees today, according to Met Éireann, with the temperatures dropping and fog in some areas after nightfall.

According to the latest forecast:

It will be very cold in the north and northwest with lowest temperatures falling to between -2 and -6 degrees with a severe frost and the risk of freezing fog.
Elsewhere lowest temperatures will be -2 to +2 degrees with frost away from coasts. Winds will be light variable or northerly but moderate northeasterly near southeast and south coasts preventing frost there.

A ‘yellow alert’ fog warning is in place for Ireland for between 10am and 6pm today.

Tomorrow, it will be cold and frosty to start with fog slowly clearing, but drizzle in some areas later.

Saturday night won’t be as cold as recently, with a low of around zero. On Sunday, it will be between 7 and 10 degrees during the daytime. Patchy frost and fog is expected on Sunday night.

Temperatures will recover a little at the start of next week, according to forecasters.
