Wrap up warm - sleet or snow is possible today

Tomorrow will be a bit brighter though, thankfully.

WE’LL HAVE SOME sunny spells this morning, but watch out – some sleet or snow is possible in parts of the country.

In its latest weather forecast, Met Éireann says that we’re in for a “cool, fresh and breezy” day, which will start off sunny but move on to having “fairly widespread heavy showers” moving in from the Atlantic.

Some of [the] showers will be thundery and of hail, with even some sleet or snow possible on higher ground further west.

Yesterday, a freak sleet storm caused a five-car collision on the M8 in Cork.

Tonight there will be clear spells but also a few heavy, possibly thundery showers, particularly over Atlantic coastal counties. It will be cold too, with a sharp frost set to develop and temperatures dropping to as low as -2 degrees.

However, things will get better.

Met Éireann says tomorrow will begin largely bright, with some sunny spells throughout the day. Even though there will be some scattered heavy showers, highest temperatures will reach 8 – 10 degrees.
