Rejoice: An end to the frost with dry, mild weather on the way
There will be some respite from the frost and bitter cold, with some dry and mild weather on the way this weekend.
Met Éireann forecaster Pat Clarke told Independent.ie that the weekend will be dry with some sunshine.
“The weather for the weekend isn’t too dramatic. Thursday night was the last of the frost so temperatures will be warmer."
However Mr Clarke said that Friday will be the wettest day with some wind.
“The rain will turn heavy and possibly thundery, with a risk of some spot flooding. Top temperatures are between 11 to 14 degrees with strong southerly winds.
“With the heavy rain and excess leaves on the ground, as well as possible flooding the roads could be slippy,” Mr Clarke warned.
Saturday will be a mainly dry day, with sunshine and well scattered light showers, these mainly in western and northern areas.
Top temperatures will reach between 11 to 14 degrees.
In the north and in the east on Sunday, showery rain will develop but Munster and much of Connacht are likely to stay largely dry with some brighter weather.
Temperatures will be between 11 and 14 degrees and winds will be light to moderate from the southwest.
“Overall apart from Friday there will be dry weather with mild temperatures. There is no more frost on the horizon," said Mr Clarke.
“Once the rain clears on Friday there will be a lot of dry weather for the weekend.”
