Weather warning from Met Eireann for severe freeze

Met Eireann has issued a Status Orange Low Temperature Warning for tonight which covers Offaly.

The warning is in effect from 9pm this evening until 10am tomorrow morning, so it looks like commuting to work will be a chilly experience.

Ronaldsway Met Office warns clear skies overnight will have led to temperatures near or slightly below freezing.


Temperatures are expected to peak at 3 to 6 degrees, with some strong winds along the eastern coast.

The warning is that of a low temperature one, warning those living in Munster, Connacht, Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal that temperatures are set to stay well below zero until midday today.

It also stated that there will be "severe air" and ground frost returning. Frost will clear, and most places will have a bright start with sunshine, but cloud will increase from the south and west. It will be cold with an added wind chill from a brisk easterly wind with a maximum temperature of 7 °C.
