Met Éireann say temperatures will drop next week, with frost and snow in parts of the country
When will it end?
It seems as though our weather is a bit all over the place at the moment.
In typical "Irish weather" form, it just can't seem to make up its mind.
Currently, it's mild enough and miserable.
But it seems as though temperatures are set to drop again over the weekend, and into next week.

According to Met Éireann:
"Friday night will continue mainly dry with just patches of light rain and it will stay mild. It looks like rain will arrive on north and west coasts by Saturday morning and it will become breezy everywhere."
"On Saturday rain will spread to all areas together with strong southwest winds. Blustery showers will follow later. Temperatures in the morning will be 9 or 10 degrees, but it will turn colder during the afternoon and evening with showers possibly turning wintry in the north."
"Saturday night is looking windy and potentially very windy with showers of rain, hail and sleet in strong and gusty northwest winds with gales likely along the coast."
All terribly unpleasant.
"It looks like Sunday will start windy with ongoing strong and gusty northwest winds. Wintry showers will continue in the north and northwest but further south it will be mainly dry with sunny spells. Afternoon temperatures of just 4 to 7 degrees with and added wind chill. Winds are expected to moderate towards evening. On Sunday night winds will ease further and it will turn cold under clear skies with a widespread sharp frost and possibly ice on roads."
"Current indications suggest next week will be cold and rather unsettled. There will be frosty nights and occasional wintry showers."
