Enjoy the sun while you can, because Met Éireann is predicting a very cold weekend

Ah sad.

Lads, it is actually bloody stunning out today.

Not only is the sun shining, but it's actually warm, which is pretty rare.

However, enjoy the sunshine while you can, because the weekend is not set for summer weather.

Saturday will be cloudy with scattered outbreaks of light rain and drizzle extending southwards through the day.

Cooler than recent days as moderate winds turn north to northeasterly, with maximum temperatures of 7 to 9 degrees in the northern half of the country and 10 to 12 degrees further south. Some clear spells developing overnight, with lows of -2 to +2 degrees, and a risk of frost.

Frost? REALLY

Dry and cloudy at first on Sunday, but some brighter spells developing during the afternoon. Quite a cool day, with maximum temperatures of 8 to 12 degrees, in light to moderate north to northeast winds.

Dry and quite cloudy on Sunday night, with minimum temperatures of 1 to 5 degrees.

Many places will stay dry for the bulk of Monday, but rain will develop over the northwest of the country and extend southwards during the afternoon and evening.

Temperatures similar to Sunday, reaching a maximum of 8 to 12 degrees, in light to moderate west to northwest winds. A few showers in the west and northwest on Monday night, but otherwise dry. Minimum temperatures of 1 to 5 degrees.

We HOPE they got it wrong, we'd love a bit of summer weather all weekend.
