More counties than not have been issued with a weather warning as temperatures are set to plummet around Ireland on Sunday evening.

Met Eireann have warned of "widespread severe frost with the risk of icy patches" as they issued a Status Yellow low-temperature warning for 22 counties which include Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and all of Connacht.

Temperatures are expected to drop to as low as four degrees below zero overnight, with the weather warning coming into effect at 8pm on Sunday evening and remaining valid until 9am on Monday morning.

The national forecast reads: "Patchy rain in parts of the north - mainly Ulster will die out, but most areas dry for the rest of the day. Generally cloudy but with sunny spells also. Highest temperatures 5 to 9 degrees with light winds.

"Dry and very cold tonight with clear skies and light winds. Widespread sharp to severe frost with minimum temperatures of zero to minus 4 degrees generally, though less cold near east coasts. A risk of icy patches and some shallow fog patches inland.

"Tomorrow Monday will be a bright and dry day with good sunny spells. After a very cold start, frost will clear and temperatures will recover to range 6 to 9 degrees by afternoon. Light variable winds, becoming southerly later on west coasts."
