CHANGEABLE weather looks set for the weekend as frost and fog will give way to patchy rain and isolated showers.

It was boots and hats this morning as school children and commuters trudged their way through widespread fog and frost.

The sun is expected to break through by noon and will burn off any lingering fog and it will be a mostly dry but dull day.

And Met Éireann expects the cold snap to continue throughout the weekend although there will be breaks in the weather with some scattered showers.

“It will be a dull, overcast day with temperatures this afternoon of eight degrees while winds will be light southerly or variable in direction,” reads the forecast.

“Tonight, there'll be patchy light rain and drizzle in the south and east later on as cloud thickens.

“Overall, it'll be a mostly dry night once again and under clear skies temperatures will fall to between - 2 degrees and once again fog may form and become dense in patches.

“Saturday will be cloudy with patchy light rain and drizzle at times.

“Temperatures will reach a high of 11 degrees and winds will be light to moderate easterly.

“On Sunday there'll be isolated showers but overall a dry day with cloudy conditions prevailing with highs of 11 degrees.

“Monday will be mainly dry with some brighter weather for the morning in the south and east for a time, cloud in the northwest will bring outbreaks of rain.”
