"In the afternoon a more organised band of rain and sleet will move into southern parts. Feeling cold with highs of just 4 to 7°C in fresh to strong and gusty southwesterly winds, reaching gale force on north and west coasts."
Sunday will be much colder apparently, with some frost and ice in places.
"A frosty start with icy patches leads to another day of widespread showers which will be wintry at times. Showers most frequent in southern parts."
"Maximum temperatures just 2 to 3 degrees in the north, but reaching 5 to 6 degrees further south. Variable winds mostly moderate in strength, fresh to strong on the south coast. A widespread frost again on Sunday night, lows of zero to minus 2 degrees."
Okay so make sure you wrap up warm this weekend folks.
