We all fell for a fool’s spring last week.
Now the predictable return to wintry conditions after a short period of blissful March sunshine is underway, with reports of snow falling in many parts of the county this afternoon and hail showers in the city.

It looks like there might be an opportunity to absorb some Vitamin D later in the weekend, however, although you’ll need to be quick between downpours.
According to Met Éireann, we can expect a largely dry to start to Saturday but cloud will build from the Atlantic through the morning, bringing patchy outbreaks of rain and drizzle through the afternoon and evening, with highest temperatures of 9 to 11 degrees and winds reaching near gale force at times along coasts.
After a wet and very windy on Saturday night, it looks like Sunday will be mild with highest temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees in between heavy showers.
