Chilly start to the week forecast for Galway

Galway Daily weather Weather warning as further snow showers forecast

It’s going to be a chilly start to the week in Galway, but there also promise to be some sunny days before Winter really bites.

The coldest part of the week will come early, with temperatures on Monday to reach lows of 3 degrees overnight inland, though it will be slightly warmer on the coast.

The skies will be mostly fair today, with sunny spells in the afternoon and only a light breeze, with temperatures reaching daytime highs of 10 – 11 degrees.

Tuesday will be another cold one, with partly cloudy skies and some sunny spells in the afternoon.

A light easterly breeze will gain moderate strength as the day progresses. Highest temperatures on Tuesday of 7 – 9 degrees, dropping down as low as 5 degrees overnight.

The only rain of the week currently forecast by Met Eireann will come on Wednesday, with some light showers on the coast in the morning in a mostly cloudy day.

A moderate southeasterly wind will veer southerly as the day progresses, but fortunately, it won’t be as cold as the start of the week.

Highest temperatures on Wednesday will reach 10 – 12 degrees, without dropping much overnight.

Thursday is also expected to be an overcast day, with moderate to strong southerly winds, and temperatures ranging from 9 – 12 degrees.

Friday will be another mostly cloudy day with some scattered sunshine, Met Eireann has said.

But it will be the last reprieve from Winter, as temperatures are expected to drop again headed into the weekend, before plummeting next week.
