Frost and icy patches on untreated footpaths and roads in many areas across the province this morning. Some fog patches also. Any frost and fog will gradually clear to a mostly dry morning with some bright spells. But becoming cloudier in the afternoon with outbreaks of light rain or drizzle moving in from the Atlantic. Westerly winds will be light to moderate; highest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees.
Cold with some clear spells early in the night and little or no wind will lead to severe frost for inland areas and ice forming on untreated surfaces. There will also be widespread fog. However, cloud will thicken from the west and patchy rain will gradually extend eastwards. Lowest temperatures between minus 2 to plus 4 degrees (mildest along the coastal fringe).
Tomorrow Thursday: cold and bright with any frost, ice and fog slowly clearing to a mostly dry day with spells of hazy sunshine and only the odd light shower. Afternoon temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees in mainly light variable breezes.
