The weather forecast for Ireland for the coming week from Met Eireann is for the weather to continue unsettled with wet and breezy conditions, some wintry weather possible in northern areas early in the week.

Forecasters said 15-25mm of rain could fall widely, with 40-50mm possible across Dartmoor and near to the south coast.

The warning will come into effect at 6am on Sunday, and will remain in place until 6pm on the same day. Monday is forecast to be a cold and mostly cloudy affair with more flurries of rain and sleet - the north will suffer snow fall.

Today will be mostly cloudy across Leinster with a mixture of dry weather, patchy rain and drizzle, according to Met Eireann.

'As this rain starts to move north it will combine with cold air already over the United Kingdom, causing snow across much of Wales, where up to 20cm could fall in the highest regions.

Saturday night will be cold and mainly dry with clear spells and a sharp frost, as temperatures fall to between -1° and +2°.

So, you know, I can't really complain, but I'm just grateful for this whole situation. I didn't miss the game that much.

The mercury dropped as low as minus 6C overnight in England, with temperatures falling to between minus 10C and minus 15C in parts of Scotland.

Tomorrow will see wintry outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow become widespread in the morning.

It will be a very cold day generally with highest temperatures of 1 to 5 degrees Celsius.

A band of rain will spread northeastwards throughout the evening and night but will then develop into showers.

Tuesday will be milder with a series of breezy conditions and showers with the odd longer spell of rain.

"It will be windy, especially near western and southern coasts with strong and gusty southwest winds and lowest temperatures of 4C". Scattered showers will continue over the south of the country.
