Breaks record for the entire month of August.
A new record for the coldest August night was set on the night of 23rd/24th August for Northern Ireland.
The Met Office said temperatures plunged to a bone-chilling -1.9C (28.6F) at Katesbridge, Co Down, beating the previous record of -1.1C at Loughermore Forest in 1964.
Note: This wasn’t just the coldest in Katesbridge, it was the coldest on record across all of Northern Ireland.
