THE bitterly cold, wet and unstable weather which has buffeted the whole of the country over the last few days is going to let up as this week progresses with higher temperatures, but the Met Office says the intense rainfall will be back with a vengeance at the weekend.

Although rainfall is expected as of Saturday, temperatures accompanying the wet weather will remain higher. However, thermometer levels are set to plunge on Sunday and snow is also being forecast.

Meanwhile, Angel Rivera, head of the National Met Office, said that cold and unstable conditions will withdraw eastwards today with an anticyclone forcing the winds to drop. For those in the Mediterranean however, caution is advised as it is expected to still be quite “blowy”.

“Rainfall will diminish considerably,” said Rivera, “both in terms of the area it covers and in its intensity. It will be the northern areas of the country which will be most affected with the snow line moving up the mountain areas as the temperatures become warmer. Frosts will be the order of the day lower down rather than snowfall.”
