According to Met Eireann, Monday night will see “Minimum temperatures of minus 2 to plus 3 degrees generally with frost forming but a few degrees milder under cloudier skies in the west and southwest. Fresh southeasterly breezes along the west coast but lighter elsewhere”.

The minus figures will stay around right through until Thursday, “Cold, lowest temperatures -1 to plus 2 C,  generally with some frost and icy patches”.

These “patches of mist, fog and frost clearing with some sunny spells developing in many places for a time” can also be expected during the daytime, so it looks like we’re in for a cold week.
