"We'll take cold and dry over wet and windy, right?'" asked Carlow forecaster, Alan O'Reilly, as he made his weather prediction for the weekend. 

He added: "Cold nights ahead with frost and risk of icy patches."

According to Met Éireann, frost and any fog will clear on Saturday to give a dry, calm and mostly sunny day. Cold throughout though with afternoon highs of only 3 to 7 degrees, coldest across northern areas.

A sharp to severe frost to start the day on Sunday, but overall dry and sunny with just light breezes. Highs of 4 to 9 degrees, coldest across Ulster and north Leinster.

Frost clearing on Monday to give a mostly dry day with a mix of cloud and sunny spells, brightest across the midlands and southeast. Less cold, with highs of 7 to 10 degrees, in light to moderate southwest breezes.
