It’s a frosty morning out.
And it looks like we’re in for a further blast of wintery weather later today, as Met Éireann issues a Status Yellow – Wind warning for Cork, Clare, Kerry, Limerick and Waterford.
“North to northwest winds will strengthen on Friday evening and Friday night, gusting up to 100km/h with a slight risk of coastal flooding.” said a forecaster.
The Status Yellow warning is in place from 4pm today until 6am on Saturday.
“This morning will be very cold with widespread frost and a risk of icy stretches, clearing gradually. There will be some bright or sunny spells, but scattered showers also, most of them in western Munster.
“Some of the showers may be wintry, especially over high ground. Cloud will increase during the afternoon and evening, bringing more persistent rain, mainly to the eastern half of the province.”
Maximum temperatures will range from 5 to 8 degrees.
Forecasters are predicting a “significant change in our weather pattern” this week with a cold polar maritime airmass sweeping across the country.
“A cold front will extend southeastwards across Ireland Tuesday night and this will mark the beginning of a noticeably colder and more wintry spell of weather,” said Met Éireann.
