Rain, sleet and snow creating hazardous driving conditions

Any accumulations of sleet and show will lead to some hazardous driving conditions this morning, say Met Éireann for Ulster. Widespread showers of rain, sleet and snow will continue this morning along with a chance of isolated thunderstorms and hail. During the afternoon showers will tend to die off but showery outbreaks of rain will develop in the west during the evening. Highest temperatures 3 to 7 degrees, mildest in the west in moderate to fresh and gusty westerly winds.

Rain will gradually become widespread on Friday night turning heavy at times, with a risk of localised flooding in the west. Lowest temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees, coolest early in the night with milder conditions accompanying the rain and extending across the region overnight as south to southwest winds increase fresh to strong and gusty.


Rain will quickly clear on Saturday morning with sunny spells and showers following from the west, hail with isolated thunderstorms are possible, while some may turning to sleet through the evening hours. While the day will start mild temperatures will drop through the day with early afternoon highs of 4 to 7 degrees, in fresh and gusty westerly winds.
