The rest of the weekend will remain cool but dry with good spells of sunshine.

It will become milder at the start of next week, however, it is expected to turn more unsettled as high pressure moves away. 

Met Éireann has forecast that tonight will be “very cold” with widespread frost and some icey patches. 

Temperatures may drop to -4 degrees tonight paving way for a cold and frosty Sunday morning. 

However, it will be a dry end to the week with plenty of sunshine and highest temperatures of seven to 10 degrees.

"Turning more unsettled and milder next week with high pressure moving away,” a Met Éireann forecaster said. 

"Breezy conditions will develop with some rain expected. Uncertainty with the details from midweek.”

Monday will be breezy and cloudy but dry in many areas with some drizzle in the south. 

From that night a mix of cloud will be visible with clear spells and patchy drizzle.
