Dublin weather: Met Eireann warns of gale force winds with weekend arrival of Storm Ciara following mixed conditions with sun, frost, wind and rain

Another cold morning in Dublin, and there's going to be a chill in the air throughout the day as temperatures only reach 7C.

We can expect the sunshine to make an appearance but that won't do much to heat up the capital.

There's a dry night on the cards, but more frost is on the way along with 0C temperatures.

The wind is also going to pick up, with gusty conditions along the coast, giving an indication of what's to come with Storm Ciara.

Met Eireann says: "Any early frost or mist will soon clear this morning to leave a mainly dry day with a mix of cloud and sunny spells. Afternoon temperatures of 6 or 7 degrees in a moderate southeasterly breezes.

"Tonight will be mainly dry with some clear spells. Temperatures will drop back to between 0 and +2 degrees with patchy frost developing. Moderate southeast winds will be fresh and gusty along coasts."

There will be more of the bluster across Ireland tomorrow, although temperatures will be a couple of degrees higher.

Rain will fall ahead of Storm Ciara's arrival with the worst of it expected on Sunday.

Ahead of that, Saturday will see heavy rain and strong winds on election day so if you're going out to vote - make sure to bring a brolly.

Met Eireann continued: "Tomorrow, Friday will be a cloudy and blustery day. Mainly dry for the first half of the day with just some patchy rain and drizzle.

"Later outbreaks of rain will move in from the west in a freshening and gusty southerly wind. Highest temperatures of 9 or 10 degrees.

"After a mostly dry start on Saturday morning, heavy rain and strong and gusty southerly winds will move eastwards over the country bringing a risk of very strong squally winds, with gales along all coasts and strong gale force winds along the northwest coast.

"The rain possibly lingering into the evening in parts of Leinster and Munster.

"Current indications suggest a very strong to near gale force and gusty southwest wind will develop on Sunday along with heavy rain, as Storm Ciara tracks to the north of the country."
