SO AFTER WEATHER warnings, torrential downpours, and unseasonably mild weather, what can we expect from the weather this weekend?

Met Éireann says that today will be cool and bright with sunny spells and scattered heavy showers, especially in western and northern areas and possibly a few of hail.

Showers will be more isolated in southern and eastern parts but still a few heavy ones. Showers will die away later in the day.

Tonight, it will be cold in northern counties with some frost, and cool early in the night elsewhere also, but rain and occasional fog spreading northwards and turning less cold.

Overnight lows will range from about 1 degree in some northern parts to 6 or 7 degrees  in parts of the southwest.

The rain will clear from southern and western areas around dawn but some mist or fog developing.

Tomorrow, the rain will clear from some northern and eastern areas and the rest of the day will be bright and cool with a mix of cloud and sunny breaks and just a few well scattered showers but most areas dry.
