DRIVERS in Kilkenny have been warned to get ready to defrost their cars from tomorrow morning as temperatures plummet across the country, signalling an icy end to the unseasonably mild temperatures we’ve experienced over the festive and new year period.
Met Éireann has forecast come bitterly cold nights ahead, starting tonight with temperatures dropping below zero in across the city and county.
The cold snap is likely to continue to the rest of the week, so people have been urged to wrap up well when going outside.
Met Éireann said: “A chilly start to today, Wednesday, with frost and mist patches clearing this morning. Dry for the rest of day with variable cloud and bright or sunny intervals. Afternoon highs of 7 or 8 degrees in light southeast breezes.
“Dry and cold again tonight with clear spells and scattered cloud. Lowest temperatures will hover around zero to plus 2 degrees Celsius. A few patches of mist or fog may form in the light southerly breezes.”
Tomorrow will be predominantly dry, with “just a slight risk of the odd spot of drizzle” and top temperature of 7 degrees. Temperatures will drop again overnight, with a risk of ground frost.
Friday will be another dry and cold day and the weekend will be much the same with temperatures staying just above freezing overnight.
