THE WEATHER FOR the weekend ahead looks like it will be very cold – with temperatures set to fall between zero and -4 degrees tonight.

Motorists are being warned by Met Éireann to take care on the roads tonight, with “dangerous driving conditions” expected due to the low temperatures and possibility of freezing fog.

As for today, Met Éireann says it will be cold and breezy, but we can expect some sunny spells and scattered showers.

If you’re in Ulster, you might get some sleet or snow.

Temperatures will reach 4 to 6 degrees, but Met Éireann warns us they will feel colder “due to wind chill from blustery northwesterly winds”.

Weather warnings

There are two weather warnings still in place, a status orange snow-ice warning for Donegal, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo, which remains in place until 12am today; and a status yellow snow-ice warning for Longford, Cavan, Monaghan, Galway and Roscommon, valid until the same time.

Temperatures could drop to as low as -6 degrees on Saturday night.

In short: wrap up warm today, and mind yourself on the roads.
