It’s about to get very cold.

A STATUS YELLOW low temperature warning will take effect for Leinster and Connacht this evening. 

Met Éireann has warned a very cold night is ahead with temperatures set to dip as low as minus 4 degrees in the affected areas. 

The warning takes effect from 6pm this evening until 11am tomorrow morning. 

The forecaster said that temperatures will stay below freezing until mid-morning on Saturday with widespread frost and the risk of icy patches. 

“Cold and clear tonight with a widespread sharp to severe frost and icy surfaces.” 

The frost will clear by Saturday afternoon with a calm and mostly sunny day expected. Staying cold throughout the day, temperatures will range between 3 to 7 degrees. 

Tomorrow night will see temperatures falling back to minus 3 or minus 4 degrees with some fog settling in, mostly in the midlands.
