Plastering Question

A section of render above my front door has dropped off leaving some of the wooden lintel and brickwork exposed! it is winter so rendering will be hard- is there a way to do a temp repair until spring

The wood lintel feels dry but there is driving rain at the moment with more storms forecast so I am really worried. Called a couple of tradesmen but no-one will touch it until weather starts to improve. Is there anyway I can temporarily make this water tight?

You could cover timber with expanding mesh and put a scratch coat render(add water proofer) over it and should be good till weather improves.
