Another freezing night

It seems like there is no end in sight of this cold and gloomy weather.

Tonight the wintry showers ease away, temperatures fall to minus 2C, but under any clearer spells it could drop as low as -5C.

Sunday may feel like 'Groundhog Day' with more cloud and more cold weather. Highs of just 3C and a chilly northeasterly breeze. There may be some bright spells around, but not many and most likely in the south of the country.

Next week sees little let up in the cold overcast weather. There may be some more substantial breaks in the cloud on Wednesday but the chilly northeasterly wind will keep things chilly. Highs of 4-5C throughout and cold overnight.
