IT might be time to binge-watch that Netflix show you've been wanting to watch - as this weekend is set to be a cold one.

After a very mild week, temperatures are set to drop tonight as a cold snap takes over Ireland.

Most of today should remain relatively mild, however from this evening temperatures are set to fall below 0C.

A widespread severe frost will form, along with some icy patches - as air temperatures  drop as low as -4 in many inland areas.

Saturday won't see much improvement to temperatures, as the mercury will barely rise above 3C throughout the day.

Temperatures overnight on Saturday into Sunday will drop as low as -3C.

Met Eireann has also warned to expect another severe frost across the country, particularly in the midlands, north and east.

The cold snap will end almost as quickly as it started - with daytime temperatures  beginning to rise again from Monday.

In the early days of next week daytime temperatures are expected of 7C to 10C.
