They say that March comes "in like a lion and out like a lamb" and Met Eireann's forecast today seems to agree.

The national forecaster is predicting some rotten weather for the rest of the day, with everything from flooding to snow on the way.

"Rain will spread northeastwards this afternoon, some heavy falls in places with local spot flooding possible. Becoming extremely windy later in parts of Munster, south Connacht and south Leinster with severe winds especially in coastal fringes," said a spokesperson.

"The rain will turn more to sleet or snow in some places towards evening. Top temperatures of 4 to 9 degrees."

There a status yellow weather warning coming into play from 3pm today, with experts warning that winds will reach up to 50 to 65km/h with gusts of 90 to 110km/h.

The harsh conditions are set to continue until 6am tomorrow morning so take care if you're planning to venture out later.
