Temperatures are set to drop as low as -4 degrees tonight, resulting in severe frost and icy stretches across the country.

Motorists are being urged to take care on the roads this morning but icy patches are expected to clear gradually.

The wet weather will continue throughout the morning, especially in coastal areas, with a slight risk of thunder and hail.

However, it's not all bad news, as sunny spells are expected later in the day.

Temperatures won't reach higher than 8 degrees during the day and it's only downhill from there, with temperatures plunging to between 0 and -4 tonight.

Sunday is set to be another cold but bright day with frost and fog clearing slowly.

To sum up, changeable and unsettled weather is expected for most of the weekend with wet and windy weather on the cards for Monday.
