There's a weekend of mixed weather ahead, unfortuantely...
According to Met Éireann, rain is expected throughout today, with few heavy showers and hail in some places. Lowest temperatures will be in the range zero to -2 C., with some frost and icy patches also.
Saturday will be cold, with bright or sunny spells and occasional showers, most of these in the afternoon and early evening. Some of the showers will be heavy and with hail and there is likely to be a few thundery downpours also, with much of the same expected on Sunday.
There's only one thing for it pals... to the duvet fort!
