NO NATIONAL WEATHER warnings have been issued by Met Éireann today, but tonight is to bring widespread frost and temperatures as low as -3 degrees Celsius.

The national meteorological service has said that this morning’s frost is set to clear and that wintry showers will die out in the south-east.

Rain and sleet will develop over Ulster and Connacht, however.

While highest temperatures during the day will range between 4-6 degrees Celsius, tonight will be very cold.

National transport systems are also running as normal this morning, as is Dublin Airport.

AA Roadwatch is warning that temperature on many roads remain below zero, however, so care is required.

Last night was one of the coldest nights of the year, with temperatures dropping to -7 degrees Celsius in the west.
