Met Éireann predict -1 temperature plunge in major Ireland weather u-turn

Must read

Ireland’s brief brush with summer appears to have come to an end as Met Éireann predicts more unsettled weather and night-time temperatures as low as -1 degrees in the coming days.

The country has been basking in largely dry and rather warm conditions since last weekend but we may have to wait for another week or too for sunnier climes to return.

In their latest forecast, Met Éireann said we will see “showers merging to give longer spells of rain at times” on Thursday with rain and even some frost coming over the weekend.

They predicted some “localised heavy falls” on Thursday but said “a clearance to drier and sunnier conditions in Ulster, will continue to edge slowly southwards this evening. Light to moderate northerly or variable breezes.”

They added that on Thursday night “showery outbreaks of rain will linger in southern parts. It’ll be cold with clear spells elsewhere, with just a few showers near northern coasts. Some mist and fog patches too. Lowest temperatures of -1 to +5 degrees in light northeasterly winds, coldest across the north midlands, with a touch of grass frost.”

Their forecast continued: “Some bright or sunny spells tomorrow [Friday] with well scattered showers, some heavy. Highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees in a light to moderate northeasterly breeze.

“On Friday night, showers will soon die away with long clear spells following. Some frost will set in. Cold with lowest temperatures of -1 to 3 degrees in light northerly breezes.

“Saturday will be a cool day with a mix of sunny spells and scattered April showers feeding in over the country, in a light to moderate northeasterly breeze. Highest temperatures of 8 to 12 degrees, mildest in the west.

“Mainly dry and chilly on Saturday night with clear spells in a light northwesterly breeze. Lowest temperatures of -1 to plus 2 degrees with some grass frost forming.

“Sunday will see the likelihood of more general falls of rain moving in off the Atlantic during the day. Much of the south and southeast may stay fully dry however. Fairly cool with highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees. Northerly winds will likely veer westerly.”

Beyond that, their outlook reads: “Unsettled for the early days of next week with rain or showers feeding up from the south. Turning a little milder.”
