SPRING MAY FINALLY have decided to make an appearance this year after a cold start to the year.

Met Éireann is forecasting milder temperatures for the week ahead, with highs of up to 15 degrees Celsius.

There was a frosty start this morning and showers – heavy at times – are expected later in the day. Top temperatures will reach 9 degrees, but it will turn icy again tonight.

Tomorrow this frost will clear early and there will be milder temperatures, reaching 7 to 11 degrees in some areas, though rain will be persistent.

Wednesday is expected to be the warmest day of the week with highs of 15 degrees, sunny spells and scattered showers. Mixed and changeable weather will follow Thursday and Friday.
