Dreary week of dull and blustery weather ahead

There’ll be no repeat of the recent days of sunny skies next week, as blustery and overcast weather is forecast for Galway.

Temperatures overnight will average 8 to 10 degrees, Met Eireann has predicted.

Monday will be a dull and overcast day throughout, with frequent showers of rain and drizzle.

Highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees tomorrow, with a consistent fresh westerly wind.

Tuesday will be slightly better than Monday, though overcast skies are still the order of the day.

After a mostly dry morning there will be some scattered showers in the early afternoon, and temperatures of 10 to 11 degrees.

Fairly strong winds, mostly westerly, are forecast for Tuesday, getting fresher in the evening time.

Met Eireann has given a more mixed forecast for Wednesday, with some hints of sunshine are also expected amid the clouds and light showers.

Strong westerly winds are expected on Wednesday, but these will die down overnight.

Things will start to get colder as the week goes on, with temperatures on Thursday and Friday reaching lows of 2 to 5 degrees.

Heading into the weekend, its possible that the mercury will drop below zero again in places.
