Temperatures will remain cool for the weekend, but there is a return to slightly milder weather on the horizon.

It's expected to be mainly dry in the north with sunny spells today, but showers are due to hit the southern half of the country, according to Met Éireann.

Forecaster Siobhán Ryan spoke as a Status Yellow rainfall warning remained in place for Cork and Waterford.

The weather warning will stay in place until early this morning.

Ms Ryan said southern and eastern counties could expect yet more rain this weekend, but the rest of the country can bank on dry weather.

Most parts of the country will be dry today, with only the odd shower. It will be cloudy with a few sunny breaks and top temperatures will reach 6C-10C.

It will be cold and frosty tonight, with temperatures falling as low as -2C and it will be coldest in Atlantic coastal counties.

Tomorrow will be largely dry with good sunny spells. However, there will also be some scattered showers, particularly in the east of Leinster.
