Freezing weather conditions on the way as Met Éireann warns of "polar air-mass"

Time to wrap up.

Of all the things going on in 2020, we haven't seen a polar-air mass just yet. So, right on cue, Met Éireann has told us it's going to affect the weather here in the near future.

A cold air system is heading straight for Ireland and will bring some odd weather along with it.

Although it will be mainly bright with good sunny spells for the remainder of the week, Met Éireann is also predicting overnight lows of -1 degrees with frost forming in places.

Yes folks, we can expect cold air, heavy showers, potentially hail, and even lightning in places as a result of the air-mass.

On Thursday night, Met Éireann says we'll see "a mix of cloud and clear spells" with lowest temperatures of -1 to +3 degrees and frost forming in places.

Temperatures will again drop to -2 on Friday night before milder conditions return for the weekend, with outbreaks of rain likely, particularly in Munster and South Leinster.

Something of a mixed bag in store for the next few days, to say the least.
