Friday is set to be another cold day with scattered, heavy showers to impact Atlantic counties, especially in the north-west and south-west. Some wintry falls are possible in these regions, according to the national forecaster.
Fright night will see temperatures drop further, as low as -4 degrees, with some ice and fog patches.
It will be cold with some sunny spells on Saturday, according to the national forecaster. Meanwhile, it will be dry in most areas; however, wintry showers will continue in the north-west overnight.
A band of rain, hail, sleet, and snow will move eastwards across the country, according to Met Éireann. Frosty and icy conditions will develop, as wintry showers clear. Temperatures, again, will be as low of -3 to 0 degrees.

On Tuesday, rain will spread from the west, possibly falling as sleet or snow in Ireland for a period, according to Met Éireann.
