Pedestrians in Dublin's city centre struggle with their umbrellas as storms sweep across the country.

Heavy showers will continue overnight and will turn wintry in places, but the gale force winds will continue to cease.

Temperatures are expected to dip to below freezing tonight, Met Eireann reports.

Motorists are also being warned of icy stretches on untreated surfaces, which could still remain tomorrow morning. 

Tomorrow is expected to be ‘rather cold’ but the remnants of today’s storm will be well and truly gone.

Winds are expected to be fresh and gusty and some of the scattered showers will be wintry.

The forecast also warns people to brace themselves for yet another storm which is set to hit before the weekend.

The exact track of the storm has not been fully determined yet but it is expected in Ireland by Friday evening.
