THE WINDY WEATHER will give way shortly…only to be replaced by snow and frost.

According to Met Éireann, parts of the country should expect sleet and snow on Friday night as strong, northerly winds set in.

Deposits of snow are expected in the east and south, especially on high ground.

A hard frost will also set in countrywide on Friday night as skies clear and winds ease, with ice forming on many surfaces.

But first, there will be plenty of rain on Friday during the daytime, with only Ulster expected to stay dry.

Rainfall accumulations in southern, and perhaps eastern, counties may result in flooding.

For today, scattered showers (some heavy and thundery) are predicted. Gale warnings remain in place for all coastal areas.

Tomorrow will continue to be “very windy” with northern counties experiencing the heaviest showers. It will stay rather cool at between seven and 10 degrees Celsius.
