We could see a bit of snow and sleet in certain parts of the country tomorrow as temperatures plummet, but the heavy rain continues.

Met Éireann has issued a yellow raining warning for Wicklow, Louth, Meath and Dublin from today at 12pm until tomorrow at 12pm.

The national forecaster has said the cold temperatures ( 0 to 4 degrees) could turn the rain into snow flurries.

"Showers will continue to occur tonight, the showers turning to longer spells of rain in parts of Leinster with the risk of hail and thunder here and perhaps a wintry flurry on the Wicklow mountains towards dawn."

Met Éireann has also warned of the possibility of hail and thunder tonight.

"Further showers overnight, some heavy with hail and thunder possible. There is the risk of the showers falling as sleet or wet snow on mountains towards dawn. Minimum temperatures will range zero to plus 4 degrees in fresh and gusty northeasterly winds."

The showers will continue into Wednesday with "the continued risk of sleet over the mountains".

It will also be quite cold tomorrow with maximum temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees.

Thursday looks like a much a brighter and drier day, but there is still a possibility of showers in southern and eastern counties.

On Friday, it will be mostly cloudy in southern counties and dry and bright elsewhere except for a few showers in east Ulster. Top temperatures of 6 to 9 degrees.

Make sure to wrap up over the next couple of days.
