You might be craving some fresh air after the wet and wild weather of the past few days, but the sun isn't quite ready to make an appearance yet.

The weather will remain "disturbed" over the next few days, according to Met Eireann.

It will remain cold until Monday, before milder temperatures take over from Tuesday onwards.

There are currently rainfall warnings in western and northern counties and there is also risk of snow on higher ground in the north-west.

Speaking to RTE Radio One's Morning Ireland, a forecaster said the weather is expected to remain unsettled.

"There is a rainfall warning in western and northern counties, it will be drier elsewhere but the rain will be showery.

"There will be bright conditions across Munster and south Leinster later.

"But elsewhere it will be cloudy with persistent rain."

Tomorrow is set to be cold and windy with spells of rain. Those in the midlands have been advised to be aware of potential sleet or wet snow.

There will also be strong to gale-force and blustery westerly winds.

"Tonight will be cold and dry with clear periods," Met Eireann spokesperson continued.

"Frost is likely, especially in the north and temperatures will be as low as zero to three degrees."
