The days may be getting slightly longer buy it seems we haven't seen the worst of the winter yet.

Met Éireann is predicting a rough ride for us here in Ireland with a 'winter storm' set to land in the middle of the upcoming week.

An update for Wednesday reads:

'Cold and windy for much of the day with further showers. Temperatures rising during the evening as heavy rain and strong winds develop overnight with the passage of a winter storm across Ireland.'

Before that, things a looking a little bit brighter at the beginning of the week...

'Monday will be a bright day with sunshine and blustery showers, most frequent across the north and west of the country. It will turn colder as the day goes on with mid-afternoon temperatures ranging from 4 degrees in the north to 8 degrees in the south. In the evening the showers will start to turn wintry. Westerly winds will be fresh to strong and gusty, reaching gale force along the west coast.'

While things will take a bit of a downturn on Tuesday...

'A cold, windy day with widespread heavy showers merging to longer spells of rain across the western half of the country; some of the showers will be wintry. Highs of 2 to 5 degrees.'

Anyone else up for pulling a sicky on Wednesday?
