'Severe frost' on the way as Met Éireann forecasts sub-zero weather front

Met Éireann is forecasting a bitterly cold weekend with sub-zero overnight temperatures and severe frost.

Thursday night will continue mainly cloudy with further patchy light rain or drizzle, mainly in coastal areas. Temperatures will fall to between zero and plus 3 degrees, resulting in some frost locally. 

Friday will be mostly cloudy and mostly dry with just some patchy drizzle, mainly on hills and in southern and western coastal counties. 

From then on, a Scandinavian weather front will influence our weather bringing very cold and wintry showers in many areas. Friday night will be cloudy and mostly dry with just a few spots of drizzle and temperature dipping to -1 degrees, resulting in frost.

Saturday will be another cold day with daytime temperature struggling to surpass 6 degrees, while night time readings could hit as low as -2 bringing widespread frost. 

Sunday will be a dry and sunny day. However, it will be another cold day with top temperatures of just 4 to 7 degrees in a light to moderate easterly breeze. Sunday night will be dry and clear in mostly light easterly breezes. It will turn even colder with a widespread sharp to severe frost predicted overnight.

Next week also looks like bringing cold days and very cold nights with wintry showers and widespread frost likely.
