It's going to be a cold, frosty weekend

Heavy rain is coming our way too.

TODAY WILL KICK off with frost and fog in many parts of the country.

Met Éireann says both will gradually clear, lading to a few sunny spells later. However, showers will affect the south and east coast from early on and they will become more widespread throughout the day.

It’ll be another cold day with highest temperatures ranging from four to seven degrees Celsius, though it will be a bit less cold in the south. Southeast winds will be light to moderate.

Tonight showers will continue for a while in the east and north, but it will become mainly dry elsewhere. Lowest temperatures will dip to one to four degrees with a touch of frost in the south. There will be light to moderate southeast winds along eastern and northern coasts.


Tomorrow will start mainly dry in central areas, but showers in coastal regions will become widespread during the day and some will merge into longer spells of rain, heavy at times. Highest temperatures will again range from four to seven degrees. Moderate to fresh southeast winds will become mostly light as the day goes on.

Rain is likely to continue for a while on Saturday night, it’ll be heavy at times on east coasts with the possibility of some sleet or snow on high ground. Temperatures will stay a few degrees above freezing in most parts, with a risk of frost.

Sunday and Monday

Sunday will also be cold. Rain should become light and patchy, although showers may affect east and north coasts throughout the day. Temperatures will be five or six degrees at best and northeast winds will make it feel colder. It’ll be cold and mostly clear overnight with widespread frost once again, severe in many parts as winds turn northerly.

There will be a cold and frosty start to Monday morning with any frost slow to clear. Otherwise it’ll be a generally dry day with sunshine.

Temperatures will stay at five or six degrees in the afternoon with little or no wind. Monday night will be very frosty again with air temperatures below freezing in many parts. Fog may form as well.
