The worst of the high winds brought by Storm Jorge have passed, but the wintry weather has not gone away.

Sunday will get off to a cool, bright and breezy start but this will give way to wintry showers with hail and thunder and a risk of snow and sleet particularly on higher ground.

It will stay cold with temperatures of 5° to 7°C in brisk to strong westerly winds.

Tonight will be cold with temperatures falling as low as -2°C inland, with fresh west to southwest coastal winds. Showers will become increasingly wintry towards morning.

Monday will see widespread frost with icy patches on roads. The day will start with a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers, again with a risk of sleet, hail and thunder in blustery conditions.

Temperatures will range from 5° to 7°C in fresh to strong westerly winds.

The forecast for the week ahead shows a likelihood of more cool and showery weather, with temperatures dipping below 0°C at night.
