THERE’S SOME UNSEASONABLY cool weather on the way this week – with wintry showers forecast for some areas, and temperatures dropping below freezing tomorrow night.

Expect showers – falling as hail in some areas – this afternoon.

From this evening it will feel much colder as a result of fresh and gusty northwesterly winds, with a few wintry showers possible in the north and northwest later.

It will be windy and cold tonight, according to Met Éireann, with frequent showers over Connacht and Ulster – some of hail.

The mercury will drop to zero in some areas overnight – while tomorrow the temperatures will range between 7 and 11 degrees.

The latest forecast says tomorrow will be “a cold, breezy and fresh day with sunshine and showers”.

It will turn very cold then overnight on Tuesday – again with some wintry showers.

Overnight temperatures will be between minus and plus two degrees, with widespread frost.

Conditions are expected to improve again after the middle of the week. There’s some heavy rain expected on Friday – but at this stage things are looking a little brighter for the bank holiday weekend.
