Prepare yourselves for a freezing cold start to 2019 because temperatures are set to plummet below zero tomorrow night.

It’s been a mild few days across the country and thankfully that will continue for New Year’s Eve before taking a turn for the worse.

Today will stay dry and cloudy with highs of 7°C to 10°C, while those heading out tonight will be glad to hear it’s not expected to rain in most parts of the country.

A forecast from Met Éireann said, ‘Many places dry and predominately cloudy at first this evening, but with a few clearer intervals occurring also.

‘A band of thicker cloud with patchy outbreaks of light rain and drizzle will extend slowly southwards over Ulster from around midnight, followed by clearer skies.

‘Lows of 5°C to 8°C but dropping to 3 or 4 degrees where longer clearer periods occur. Mainly light westerly breezes.’

Tomorrow will see patchy rain and highs of 6°C to 10°C around the country before turning seriously cold that night.

The forecaster added, ‘Clearing skies over the north and east of the country will bring temperatures below freezing with a fairly widespread frost.

‘Much of Connacht/ Munster will remain cloudy and frost free with lows of 2°C to 5°C.’
