Ireland is in for a miserable week in terms of weather with parts of the country set to be battered by rain and snow.
A series of wintry falls have hit the North and parts of the West this week after Met Eireann issued a series of weather warnings.
Currently a yellow rain and snow warning remains in place for Antrim, Tyrone and Derry as weather chiefs warn of tricky travel conditions.
And the rest of the country is also set to get battered by heavy rain showers in what is shaping up to be a miserable start to the week.
However the one saving grace is that temperatures will start to climb slightly this week, and there’s even the chance of some sunny spells by the weekend.

A forecaster said: “Rain gradually clearing northern areas during the morning. Elsewhere bright spells will give way to widespread blustery showers from the southwest. Some will be heavy and with a risk of hail and isolated thunderstorms. Highest temperatures of 5 to 7 degrees in northern Ulster, a milder 8 to 11 degrees elsewhere in moderate to fresh southerly or cyclonic variable winds.
Blustery showers merging at times to longer spell of rain early tonight. Becoming drier later in the night with some clear spells developing.
“Lowest temperatures of 1 to 6 degrees, coolest in the south in light to moderate southwest winds generally, with moderate easterly breezes over Ulster.
“Bright spells to start in the east, however rain in the north and west will extend to most areas through the middle of the day. Highest temperatures of 4 to 8 degrees in moderate to fresh and gusty southwest or cyclonic variable breezes.”
While the rest of the week will see repeated rain showers soak the country and even some further wintry falls a forecaster added that by Friday “good dry periods with sunny spells will develop during the afternoon, mostly in the midland and south.”
“Saturday will be mostly dry with sunny spells, however there is a risk of scattered showers in the northern and eastern coastal counties.”
