Wrap up warm! Freezing temperatures expected on Thursday and Friday night

Freezing temperatures expected.

In terms of weather, it's been a week with torrential rain yesterday morning thanks to the remnants of Storm Sebastian.

Although the deluge of rain has stopped momentarily, there's some more extreme weather on the way with freezing temperatures forecast for Thursday and Friday night.

According to Met Éireann, temperatures may fall as low as -3 which means you'll want to prep in advance and have the hot water bottle at the ready.

At the moment, predictions for Thursday say:

"Turning cold on Thursday night, especially in the north and east where temperatures will drop back to between -3 and 0 degrees under clear skies, leading to frosty conditions. It will be less cold in the south with temperatures generally above freezing".

The cold spell is set to continue into Friday too with "temperatures below freezing in the north and east".

That sounds like the perfect excuse to cosy up and enjoy some hot chocolate in front of the fire ahead of the Late Late Toy Show on Friday night, any excuse.

Thankfully, the weekend weather is looking good so far with dry and sunny spells expected although the nights will be frosty, with these conditions expected throughout the country.

"Dry and sunny for much of the country. Some rain will affect southern counties through Saturday though. Cold and crisp with highest temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees. Cold and frosty nights with temperatures near or below zero countrywide".
