Met Eireann forecast for today as follows:
Cold, windy and very showery today; some winter sunshine in between showers too though. The focus of the showers will be across the west and north through the first half of the day, with the odd wintry fall of sleet and snow early on. Showers will become even heavier in turn later, merging to longer spells of rain, with the threat of hail and thunder throughout. Feeling raw with an added wind chill. Highest temperatures of only 4 to 7 degrees Celsius, in strong and gusty west to northwest winds; gales too along exposed coasts.
Showery conditions will continue overnight – mainly affecting Atlantic counties, with the ongoing threat of thunder. Long clear spells too, especially across the midlands, south and east. Rather windy for a time also, in fresh and gusty northwest breezes. Some frost in sheltered spots by dawn with the risk of icy patches. Cold, with lowest temperatures of 1 to 3 degrees.
