WEEKEND 24-25 FEB and MONDAY 26th guidance is split into two camps, some (North American based models) show cold northerly flow continuing with potential for mixed wintry showers returning, snow on hills, and highs around 5 C, frosty overnight readings -2 to +1 C. But European models show milder sectors able to reach the latitude of Ireland (these go into Spain on the alternate versions), so if that verified, temperatures would peak around 8-10 C with rain at times in the same interval.
