Been enjoying the sunshine? We're about to get hit with frost and hail
Met Éireann is predicting “wintry-feeling weather” for next weekend.

DID YOU MAKE the most of the sunny weather over the weekend?

Well, inevitably, it looks like things are about to take a turn for the worse in the coming days.

Met Éireann’s forecast for the coming days is predicting temperatures that are set to drop as low as zero degrees and widespread grass frost expected.

After a bright start tomorrow morning heavy showers will quickly creep in later in the day.

Here is the outlook going into Tuesday night:

On Tuesday night, showers will become confined to north and northwest coasts while clear spells develop elsewhere. Moderate, northwesterly breezes will persist but slight grass frost will occur in places inland.
During Wednesday, showers will soon become widespread across the country, although the far south will be affected by fewer showers and will have the best of the sunshine.

The bad weather will persist through to the end of the week, with rain, hail and thunderstorms expected on Thursday and Friday, with the possibility of sleet and snow on mountain tops. 

And if you’re planning for the weekend, you might do well to avoid picnics and trips to the beach; Met Éireann is predicting what it calls “wintry-feeling weather” for Saturday and Sunday.
