It comes as temperatures are set to plummet and drop below zero tonight.

A spokesperson for the national forecaster said:

"Temperatures will fall below freezing for all areas, down to between minus 1 and minus 2 degrees. Winds will be fresh to strong northwest to west and later becoming northerly."

As for tomorrow:

"The freshening southerly winds will become strong southeasterly on Thursday night ahead of rain developing in the west."

"Temperatures will be below freezing in places and the rain will be preceded for a time by a fall of snow as it spreads eastwards across the country."
