Met Éireann say we're going to be hit with snow showers tonight as temps reach -4C

It's only going to get colder.

The past few days have been bitterly cold and with a yellow warning in place until Sunday, we can see the next few days getting worse.

Met Éireann has said that while today will be mild enough, with temperatures reaching 5 degrees.

The weather forecaster said: "Most areas will be dry with sunshine this afternoon, but a few wintry showers will occur in northern and eastern coastal areas. Maximum afternoon temperatures ranging 2 to 5 degrees at best in light to moderate northerly winds, but winds will be fresh on south coasts."

And for tonight: "Very cold overnight with widespread severe frost and ice. It will be generally dry with long clear spells but sleet and snow showers will move in across parts of Ulster and north Connacht during the night. Minimum temperatures of -1 to -4 degrees in light or moderate northwest breezes."

Tomorrow will also be quite frosty, with a mix of cloud and sunshine.

"Frost and ice will gradually clear from most areas on Saturday to leave a bright day with a mix of cloud and sunshine. Much of the country will hold dry but there will be a few showers in the west where some may be wintry. Maximum afternoon temperatures of 3 to 6 degrees in mostly light westerly or variable breezes."

Wrap up and stay safe.
