It would appear that we may escape the last icy clutches of winter this weekend with the country set to enjoy some long-awaited sunshine. 

While temperatures will hover around the 10 degree mark during the day there will be some sunny spells and dry and calm weather.

Any lingering overnight frost and mist will clear quickly this morning to leave a mostly dry day with sunny spells, with the east getting the best of it.

Some isolated showers are possible in the southwest and thickening cloud in the evening will bring outbreaks of rain and drizzle to Atlantic coastal counties after dark.

However, tomorrow, Saturday, will bring a mix of cloud and bright or sunny spells with patchy light rain or showers with the north west getting the best of the sunshine this time.

Saturday night will see lows of 0 to five degrees producing a slight frost in some parts and mist and fog patches may be slow to clear on Sunday morning. But sunny spells will break through in most places by the afternoon.

There will be dry with clear spells overnight while mist and fog will clear through the morning to leave another dry day on Monday with variable cloud and some sunshine.

Tuesday looks set to be a bit of a cloudier day with patchy rain and drizzle extending northwards over the country.

Current indications suggest high pressure will bring generally settled conditions, although patchy rain and drizzle will occur at times.
