Winter is coming.

It may be time to get out the hot water bottles as the temperature tonight is expected to fall below zero.

Tuesday will have good sunny spells but there will be some scattered, heavy showers mainly the west and north.

Tuesday night will be cold, with lowest temperatures falling to between -1 and +2 degrees bringing widespread frost.

Wednesday will be another dry, bright day over most of Ireland, but it will be cloudier in the west with outbreaks of rain and drizzle that will gradually spread across the country during the afternoon.

Wednesday night will bring scattered outbreaks of rain but it will not be as cold, with the low temperature around 7-10 degrees.

The outlook for the remainder of the week and into the weekend is for much of the same, with most days bright and dry but with periods of cloud and some heavy rain.
