Saturday will be dry and sunny, but it is night time when the cold snaps are predicted to occur.
A Met Eireann forecaster said “Tomorrow, Saturday, across Munster and south Leinster it will be cloudy with a risk of rain on the coast in the morning, elsewhere will become mainly dry and sunny.
“Temperatures will range between 4 and 7 degrees again, a little higher near coasts. Winds will be light to moderate easterly, fresh on southern coasts, and will back northeasterly later.
“Temperatures will be between zero and minus 2 degrees in light northeast to north winds. There’s a chance of fog patches and icy stretches on untreated surfaces. “
