Met Éireann has put the country on alert for freezing conditions and fog that will lead to hazardous driving conditions over the weekend. 

The latest weather forecast for Ireland for Saturday from Met Éireann is for frost and fog to clear on Saturday to give a dry, calm and mostly sunny day.

A very cold start as temperatures will remain below freezing until mid morning and then staying cold through the day with afternoon temperatures of 3 to 7 degrees with light variable breezes.

Very cold and frosty once again on Saturday night with minimum temperatures widely falling back to -3 or -4 degrees. Some fog setting in too, mainly across the midlands.

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