Met Éireann predicts frost on the way very soon following mixed forecast
Frosty one ahead...
Met Éireann have issued their national forecast, predicting frost on the way on Thursday night, November 16.
After the stormy weather over the weekend, we're in for some slightly weaker but still blustery days throughout the week. The most changeable aspect of the coming week seems to be the temperature, as it drops below freezing on Thursday, before ramping back up to around 14C on Saturday.
The national forecaster's look ahead for tonight shows a mix of scattered cloud and clear spells with a few showers lingering across parts of the northwest. Lowest temperatures of -1 to 5 degrees, with frost and icy patches possible. Isolated mist patches may form as winds fall light.
Have a look below at the rest of the weekly forecast:
Friday, November 17
A cold and dry start tomorrow, with some sunny spells. Any lingering frost and mist clearing. Cloud will build from the southwest later with rain arriving into the southwest before midday. The rain will extend northeastwards through the course of the afternoon, reaching most areas by evening time. Highest temperatures of 7 to 10 Celsius. Light south to southeast winds will strengthen ahead of the rain increasing strong along coasts.
On Friday night, after a wet and blustery start, the rain will clear northeastwards through the night with clear spells and squally showers following from the west as fresh to strong southeast winds veer south to southwest by morning moderating a bit. Lowest temperatures early in the night of 4 to 8 degrees, rising overnight to be in double figures by morning.

A little cooler by the start of the week as the winds turn to the northwest, very strong and gusty in parts and especially near coasts.
