MUCH OF THE country’s been enjoying a pretty mild spell in recent days, but that’s all set to come to an end as temperatures begin to dip.

Thursday is set to start off very windy, with rain spreading southwards throughout the morning, according to Met Éireann. Colder, showery weather is set to follow, and it will be “very cold and windy” on Thursday night.

Wintry showers will affect some parts of Ulster overnight on Thursday, according to the weather service, with frost and icy patches forming as winds moderate.

The outlook for Friday is for a cold, bright day with some winter sunshine, and afternoon highs reaching only between 3 and 6 degrees.

A frosty night is forecast on Friday, with temperatures recovering gradually over the following 24 hours.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, will be dry and bright for much of the country, with temperatures of up to 9 degrees.
