Sure what else would you be expecting coming into May in Ireland...

We've had a relatively nice few days weather wise over the past few weeks. While the odd cold spell has knocked us for six on mornings like this morning, all in all, we've had it pretty alright. 

However, this evening is set to be a chilly one - with temperatures dropping to 0°C. 

According to Met Éireann's website, today shouldn't be too bad:

''Mostly cloudy at first Today, with outbreaks of rain. Clearer, brighter and more showery conditions will extend down from the north this afternoon. Some of the showers could be heavy with a risk of hail. Afternoon highs ranging 7 to 10 degrees across the northern half of the country, but 11 to 13 degrees further south. 

Feeling much colder by this evening in fresh and gusty northwesterly winds, with a few wintry showers possible in the north and northwest later.''

But tonight is a whole other story:

''Rather windy Tonight and cold, with clear spells and showers, the showers most frequent over Connacht and Ulster. Some will be of hail, with a risk of sleet over high ground. There is also a risk of thunder, especially in northern and western coastal counties. Lows of 0 to +3 degrees, with frost in places sheltered from the moderate to fresh north to northwest winds.''

Wrap up warm if you're out tonight - as it's going to be freezing.
