Weather set to deteriorate over weekend

The unseasonably clement weather is set to worsen dramatically from Saturday, according to state meteorologists, who forecast plunging temperatures and rain across much of the country with snow expected in mountainous parts, particularly in the north.

The bad weather is expected to hamper the exodus of thousands of city dwellers planning to drive to the countryside for the long weekend.

The cold spell is expected to end on Tuesday.
