Rain, hail and even thunderstorms will hit the country today as the unsettled period of weather continues.
Weather chiefs expect a chilly day with the worst of the conditions in the west and north-west of the country.
A status yellow rain warning has been issued for Donegal until 3pm today with heavy falls expected – but a significant change in the weather is likely after the weekend.
A Met Eireann forecaster said: “A breezy day with a mix of sunny spells and blustery showers, some of them heavy with hail and a risk of isolated thunderstorms. Some wintry falls are possible over high ground during the morning. The showers will be most frequent in the west and north. Highest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees in fresh to strong and gusty west to northwest winds.
“Showers will continue tonight but will ease from the southwest overnight with clear spells developing. Lowest temperatures of 2 to 5 degrees in mostly moderate westerly winds.

The rain will extend to all areas during the day and will turn heavy at times in the northwest. A clearance to scattered showers will occur towards evening. Highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees in moderate to fresh westerly winds.”
But the weekend should signal the end of the bad weather for now with milder conditions forecast next week and temperatures even reaching 16C on Wednesday, St Patrick’s Day.
