A new weather warning has just been issued.

Met Éireann has released a nationwide weather warning for freezing temperatures.

The weather forecaster revealed that temps could fall to -5 degrees Celsius across Ireland tonight.

“Minimum of minus 3 or minus 4 expected widely tonight, perhaps locally falling to minus 5 Celsius,” the website reads.

Earlier today, Met Éireann reported that we’re in for a mainly dry day, with a few showers (of course), but it will be tonight and this evening that will see the worst of it.

According to “Today will be largely dry with just an isolated shower this morning. The afternoon will brighten up with sunny spells developing. Highest temperatures 3 to 6 degrees in moderate to fresh northeast winds.

“With clear skies and light variable winds temperatures will fall widely to minus 3 or minus 4 degrees tonight, locally to minus 5. There’ll be a widespread severe frost.”

Better wrap yourself up tonight!
