Northern Ireland weather forecast: Mercury to rise, but it's still no weather for sheepish

By Staff Reporter

After the snow and freezing nights, now comes the rain and sleet over the next few days.

Much of the snow on high ground remains and while temperatures will rise with the more cloudy conditions, it will also see wintry showers, especially over hills and mainly in the north and west.

A few brighter spells will develop, but it will mostly be dull with the best of any brightness over Fermanagh and Armagh.

There is still the possibility of ice and snow in some areas, so commuters are warned to take care and be prepared.

The maximum temperature today will be 5C but it will feel colder in any breeze, with a low of around freezing again tonight.

The rest of the week looks similar, but slightly warmer and remaining cloudy and wet.

Saturday promises to be the best day of the weekend, with some sunshine and a top of around 7C, before the clouds and rain move in again on Sunday.

Winter is by no means finished with us yet, with the clouds and rain projected to stay until the end of the month and into February.
