Wrap up warm as we are about to be hit with another cold spell.

Met Eireann forecast that the weather is set to become bitterly cold for the rest of the week. Temperatures tonight will fall as low as -3 degrees with patches of freezing fog.

Although Wednesday will start off bright, 'cloud will generally increase during the day with some light rain or drizzle occurring over Connacht and south-west Munster'.

The remainder of the week will be very cold 'with frost by night, and a mix of cloud and brighter spells by day. Rainfall amounts generally small though, with mostly moderate easterly winds

The cold weather will continue into the weekend with daytime temperatures only reaching 5 or 6 degrees.

Saturday will probably be the brighter day of the two with crisp spells of sunshine. Whilst most areas should see a lot of dry weather, the east of Leinster is likely to see occasional wintry showers, with falls of sleet or snow possible over high ground.
