Ireland is set to remain under an Arctic air mass bringing sub-zero temperatures, wintry downpours and severe frost until next week, Met Éireann has said.

Daytime temperatures will struggle to climb above zero degrees at times across the weekend as widespread black ice, freezing fog and frost will lead to treacherous travel conditions.

It’s expected Met Éireann will extend their yellow weather warnings for ice and low temperatures beyond the current expiration date of midday tomorrow as temperatures look set to fall below -6 on Sunday.

It’s expected temperatures will fall to the lowest level seen in Ireland since early 2018, over the weekend.

“It’s staying very cold for the weekend and into next week and we’re expecting temperatures well below zero along with frost and icy stretches,” Mark Bowe, forecaster at Met Éireann, said.
