KILDARE WEATHER: Looking unsettled for the weekend outbreaks of frost and rain
Becoming mild and unsettled over the weekend with low temperatures and outbreaks of frost and rain in places.
Rather cold today with frost clearing to leave a mostly dry morning with sunshine. However, showers will develop during the afternoon and evening. Many of the showers will be wintry in nature with hail, sleet and some snow flurries.
Highest temperatures of 6 to 9 degrees but temperatures dropping to just 2 or 3 degrees in showers. Moderate to fresh north or northwest breezes, gusty around showers.
Showers will largely die out during the evening to leave it mostly dry overnight with long clear spells. Another cold night with frost and ice forming in places along with some fog patches. Minimum temperatures -3 to zero degrees in light northwest or variable winds.
