Temperatures look set to plunge to a bone-chilling -4 next week, bringing with it widespread frost and ice across the country. 

Met Eireann said it will be “bitterly cold and wintry” from here on in, as every night over the weekend and into next week will see the mercury stay below freezing.

Most parts of the country will start off dry with sunny spells this morning although showers will spread further inland through the afternoon and evening.

Most areas will remain dry with clear intervals tonight with lowest temperatures ranging between -1 and 3 degrees.

Saturday will be largely cloudy, although sunshine will break through at times but some frost and ice are possible as temperatures again hover between -1 and 3.

It will be colder again on Sunday with highest temperatures of just 2 to 5 degrees while the night-time will be very cold with lowest temperatures of -3 to 1 degrees.

Most parts of the country will hold dry, with clear spells across the northern half of the country, where temperatures will be lowest. Some wintry showers will be possible in the east and north.
