Met Eireann weather forecast for the weekend
Met Éireann says temperatures are set to pick up in the second part of this week but the cold snap is set to return with biting gale force northerly winds.
The forecaster has revised earlier predictions that the cold weather would end by midweek with milder weather running into the following few days.
However, it now expects that Thursday and Friday will be the only milder days. Saturday will be especially cold with gale force polar winds sweeping down from the north.
Sunday will not be as bad but will remain cold.
