It might be wise to pull out the winter duvet this weekend as temperatures are set to drop below zero in some parts of the country.

Thursday morning started off much cooler than previous days with temperatures as low as six degrees.

Met Éireann has advised that ground temperatures are expected to dip even lower this weekend.

"Saturday night will turn rather cold with air temperatures falling to between two and six degrees and ground temperatures dipping below zero in rural areas."

Meanwhile, Thursday will see scattered, heavy showers spread across the county by mid-afternoon with fresh, northwesterly breezes.

It will feel "rather autumnal" on Friday and Saturday with highs between 12 and 15 degrees.

Scattered showers are expected but it will dry overnight by Saturday.

Sunday will be the the driest and warmest day of the weekend with highs between 15 and 17 degrees.

Monday is expected to be a dry day with sunny spells and temperatures between 14 and 17 degrees.
