Risk of wintry showers as unsettled weather set to continue

Met Éireann has forecast ‘unsettled weather’ for the rest of the week, which could see wintry showers over the weekend.

Tonight will be dry at first, but rain will spread from the south and will be heavy at times overnight.

It will be cold, with lowest temperatures between 2 and 5 degrees early in the night with moderate to fresh winds.

As for tomorrow, it will continue to be wet, with heavy rain in places.

The rain will clear eastwards during the morning but it will remain cloudy with some mist and scattered patches of drizzle, and hill and coastal fog.

Afternoon temperatures will be between 8 and 11 degrees.

Thursday will begin mild, breezy and damp with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, and patches of mist and fog.

Drier spells and even lighter spells are possible in the afternoon but the risk of occasional light rain or drizzle will continue.

Afternoon temperatures will range from 9 to 13 degrees across the country.

Scattered blustery showers are forecast for Friday and some of the showers will be heavy with a risk of hail and thunder.

This could lead to longer spells of rain later in the day.

Friday will also be cooler, with afternoon high temperatures ranging from 5 to 8 degrees.

Saturday morning could see some brighter weather, but the rain will continue throughout the weekend.

Met Éireann’s early forecast for next week is that it will be much more settled.
