The end of the bank holiday weekend will herald colder weather, however, with the Met Office forecasting bands of cold Arctic air moving across the United Kingdom from the north west by Sunday, bringing snow showers and freezing overnight temperatures.

Daytime temperatures will feel quite warm, while winds will stay mostly light, although coastal areas will feel more chilly amid a maximum of 14C.

Gardaí and health officials have urged people to adhere to Covid-19 restrictions over the weekend with strict monitoring of the 5km travel limit and numbers at major Irish beauty spots.

Met Éireann's Linda Hughes said parts of Ireland will enjoy fine spring weather into Easter Sunday.

It will continue dry into Friday evening though it will prove colder than recent days with temperatures sinking to just above freezing. Lowest temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees.

It is forecast to remain dry, accompanied by sunny spells throughout the day, according to the Met Office. It will be cloudier further north. Light rain or drizzle will develop in the northwest during the afternoon and spread southwards through the evening.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Sunday night will be cold and breezy. The day will kick off mild enough, before outbreaks of rain, hail and even snow are expected to fall in Ulster.

Between Sunday night and Monday morning, temperatures could sink to as low as minus 2C. But, it will turn much colder and windy on Easter Monday, as a cold front sweeps south and a strong northerly wind develops direct from the arctic, with wintry showers sweeping south. Highest temperatures will range between 10 and 16 degrees, coolest in east Leinster due to a moderate easterly breeze.

The outlook for tomorrow is also bright, with the day starting with sunny intervals, and dry periods.
