The winter weather is here to stay, as Met Éireann forecasts another cold and frosty night tonight.

Some parts of the country will experience sunny spells and scattered showers this morning, although they’ll mainly be found in the west. Up north in Ulster it should be cloudier, leading to more frequent outbreaks of rain.

As the day goes on, showers should become more isolated and parts of the country will be dry again. There will be blustery northwesterly winds though, and afternoon temperatures will range between five to eight degrees.

The country’s expected to remain drier throughout the night as well, which will lead to the return of cold and frost as temperatures drop down again to between -2 and +2 degrees.

As such, tomorrow will start pretty dry as well, but eventually the clouds will thicken during the morning and a band of rain will move across Connacht and Munster.

The north and east will remain a bit colder with average temperatures of just three to six degrees in the afternoon. Meanwhile, the southwest will be a bit milder with temperatures of seven to eleven degrees.

Overall, the country is expected to become less cold but more unsettled as the week goes on. There’s to be widespread rain on Thursday, but that should develop into scattered showers as the weekend approaches.
