The wind and rain has eased after a turbulent night and colder temperatures thank to Arctic winds.
It's still fresh today though and a good time to dig out the coat and jumper with some showers in the north which could be heavy. The winds will be strong with gusts around 45mph.
There's also a risk of hail and thunder and it's cold enough for some sleet and snow fall on the mountain tops.
The south and east will enjoy the best of the weather today with dry and bright sunshine.
Top temperatures will be lower than recently, 10 to 12 Celsius with a brisk westerly wind will making it feel chilly.
Wednesday will continue cold and breezy with further showers, mostly in the north and west.
Thursday will be a better day thanks to a ridge of high pressure bringing calmer weather and after a cold start with some ground frost, it will be dry.
On Friday, though, the wind will pick-up again bringing a few spots of rain and drizzle.
That's it for now
