Wrap up warm.
Just when we thought the sleet and snow were gone for good it looks like it's going to be another frosty weekend.
According to Met Éireann the next few days are set to be cold with frost and snow to hit some areas of the country.
Today we can expect scattered showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow but it will be mainly confined to the northwest of the country. Highest afternoon temperatures of just three to five degrees in a light to moderate westerly breeze.
Tonight on the other hand is set to be a very cold one with frost and icy patches developing.
Scattered showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow, most frequent in the northwest with it mostly dry in the south and east.
Lowest temperatures of -3 to -1 degrees with fog patches forming in a light westerly breeze.
If you're planning to spend some time outdoors over the weekend wrap up warm as tomorrow, Saturday, will be another cold day with frost lingering for much of the morning.
Remaining dry over most of the country with spells of winter sunshine but scattered showers of hail, sleet and snow will continue in the northwest.
Later tomorrow evening a band of showers in the west will turn increasingly to sleet and snow away from the coasts as it extends eastward.
Highest afternoon temperatures of just 2 to 5 degrees in a light to moderate westerly breeze.
It is also expected to be another cold day on Sunday with sunny spells and scattered showers, mainly in the north and west where some will be of sleet or snow with showers drifting further inland through the afternoon and evening.
