'Risk of a storm' next week as temperatures set to plummet tonight

Temperatures are expected to drop to as low as minus three degrees this evening while a storm could be on the horizon for Wednesday of next week.

Met Éireann says that tonight will be 'cold, with lowest temperatures ranging between -3 and +2 degrees, coldest in the north and east with frost developing, in light to moderate southeasterly winds.' While Saturday will see sunny spells, it's set to be another cold night with some frost developing the north and the east.

Sunday night will be slightly warmer before some potential heavy rain on Monday but it looks like Wednesday is the one to look out for. Alan O'Reilly of Carlow Weather says that there is 'a risk of some nasty low systems developing with the ECMWF model showing a risk of a storm next Wednesday but exact track this far out is hard to call.'

As for this weekend, he says that the 'settled weather will mainly hold' but do remember to wrap up if you're taking a night time stroll. A more detailed Met Éireann forecast can be found here.
