While most of Ireland will see a dry night with clear spells on Friday, there will be some patchy rain and drizzle in the south and west.

But it will be a cold night with temperatures dropping as low as -3 degrees in some areas. It's expected to be coldest in the north and east of the country with some frost in these areas.

Saturday will start out cold and dry but there will be some cloud and patchy rain in the west and northwest.

Temperatures will hang around 6 and 9 degrees.

As we move into Saturday night it will be dry again in many areas but with patchy rain along the west and northwest.

Once again it's set to be a chilly one as temperatures will fall to -2 degrees along the east and north of the country with some frost.

Sunday will be much like the rest of the weekend really, with dry weather in most areas but one again some coastal rain in the west and northwest. It will be slightly warmer than Saturday with temperatures reaching as high as 10 degrees in some parts.
