A cold and frosty start today, it will be a sunny day for the country with temperatures ranging between 8 and 11 degrees.
There will be a moderate easterly breeze, fresh along the south coast at times, and it may be a little cloudier there from time to time too.
That cloud will encroach northwards over the south of Munster on Friday night, bringing the risk of some light and patchy rain in to the west of Munster by morning.
Elsewhere in the country it will be another clear night and it will be cold again with temperatures expected to dip below freezing, lowest temperatures of -1 to +2 degrees generally but staying between +4 or 5 degrees in Munster.
Winds will be moderate to fresh east to southeasterly in direction.
