Ireland will potentially see wintry showers in the next few days, as polar conditions take over the country, with temperatures plummeting.
That’s according to the latest prediction from Met Éireann, who have warned of a “dull” start to the week before things get nippy as we head towards the weekend.
There’ll even be some strong winds thrown into the mix as well as we progress through the start of April.
The current five-day forecast looks a little something like this:
Monday will be quite “dull”, according to the boffins at Met Éireann.
We’ll see “some scattered outbreaks of rain or drizzle, most persistent in the north and west”, with temperatures maxing out at 14C.
Rain will become “persistent” on Tuesday morning in the north and west, with the rest of the country not escaping the showers.
That rain will spread across the nation with some “heavier bursts” by the afternoon, with highs of 9 to 13C
Wednesday is when things start to turn wicked.
The current prediction says it will be “a windy and showery day with fresh to strong and gusty westerly winds and widespread showers, most persistent in western coastal counties.
“A cold night with outbreaks of rain and drizzle over the southern half of the country. Drier with clear spells further north, though there will be a few showers, possibly turning wintry over high ground. Lowest temperatures of 0 to +4C”
Things don’t get much better on Thursday either, which will see “a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers, with a chance that some will turn wintry on high ground. Highest temperatures of 7- 10C.
“Turning cloudier on Thursday night with outbreaks of rain and drizzle mainly over the southern half of the country. Cold with lowest temperatures of -2 to +3c, coldest over Ulster.”
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Though it’s harder to predict at this current moment, Met Eireann are hinting at more wet and blustery weather as “unsettled” conditions continue at the weekend.
