Temperatures to drop to as low as -2 in parts of the country this weekend
If this weather were a comedian, it would be named Bill Brrrrrrrr!
While the rest of this week will likely be dominated by All Rain All Of The Time, it will be taking a turn for the worse come the weekend, when the temperatures are set to plummet quite a bit.
The relatively mild temperatures of 7 to 11 degrees we've been having so far this November are on the way, with parts of the country dropping quite a bit below freezing point.
Here is the full forecast for the weekend by Met Éireann:
