Weather forecast

Friday will be a cold and breezy day, with wintry showers of hail, sleet and snow, with some further accumulations of snow in places.

A status orange weather warning and a status yellow warning are in place for parts of the country.

These showers will be heaviest and most frequent over northern and eastern areas. There will be a few sunny spells, but top temperatures of just 3°C to 6°C.

It will be windy at first, but the northeast winds will moderate during the afternoon and evening.
