Temperatures to fall below freezing at the weekend

Met Eireann have warned that the current cold spell is set to continue over the weekend, with temperatures likely to fall to -1 degrees tonight and Saturday.

But it isn’t all bad news, as sunshine is expected reign supreme during the day on Saturday, with the persistent showers we have been experiencing in recent days likely to be cleared by Sunday.

A forecaster with Met Eireann said – “On Saturday morning the rain will clear most of the country but it will stay dull in the east and northeast with further outbreaks of rain. In the west and south it will brighten up with sunshine and showers for the rest of the day.

“It will become breezy with moderate to fresh northwest winds. Highest temperatures of 6 to 10 degrees.

“Showers dying out overnight, becoming mostly dry under clearing skies. Minimum temperatures of -1 to +3 degrees as winds ease. Some frost will form where skies clear.

“Mostly if not completely dry for most of Sunday with sunny spells. The best of the sunshine will be through the morning and early afternoon. Maximum temperatures 7 to 10C.

“It will cloud over from the west in the afternoon with rain arriving in the west just after dark and moving across the country during Sunday evening and early Sunday night.”
