The weekend will bring rain, frost and ice
It’s not all bad though, a wind warning is due to end this morning.

RAIN IS EXPECTED in many parts of the country this weekend.

Met Éireann says Ulster and north Leinster will be mainly dry today, but there will be rain elsewhere, heavy at times.

A wind warning for Cork and Kerry is due to end at 9am.

The rain will clear to bright or sunny spells and scattered showers this afternoon, with most of the showers in western areas. Temperatures will peak at six to 10 degrees Celsius.

There’ll be hail in certain areas, with a risk of thunder. Temperatures will dip to minus one to two degrees, with fog and frost expected.

Saturday and Sunday

Tomorrow will see showers that will be most frequent and heaviest in Atlantic coastal counties and over Ulster, with some hail and an ongoing risk of thunder.

Many eastern and southern areas will be dry. Top temperatures will range from six to nine degrees.

Saturday night will be frosty and icy, with heavy rain and temperatures dipping to minus three degrees in some places.

Rain is expected in all areas on Sunday morning, before drier spells take hold later in the day.
