Widespread rain before freezing temperatures: here’s what this week looks like in weather

Things are turning truly wintery this week


The country will see heavy rain spreading from the west this week, before temperatures drop and conditions turn wintery, according to Met Éireann.

There is a Yellow Rainfall warning in place today from 2pm for Connacht, Donegal, Clare and Kerry, as outbreaks of rain move across from the Atlantic. The midlands and the east will stay largely dry, however, with highest temperatures of 10 to 12 degrees nationwide.

The rain will continue in the west tonight, with a risk of localised flooding, and will become more widespread before continuing into tomorrow (Tuesday). Again, it will be wettest in the west, but the rain will spread eastwards as it brightens up on the Atlantic coast. Highest temperatures from 5 to 10 degrees, the highest in the east.

From Wednesday, we’ll see the weather turn drier and calmer, however, temperatures will turn wintery. Cold overnight temperatures on Tuesday will give way to a frosty start on Wednesday, stretching out to a cool and crisp day, with temperatures of 7 to 9 degrees, dropping to -3 to +2 overnight.

Thursday will, again, be a dry and calm day across the country, but very cold. Top daily temperatures of 4 to 8 degrees, dropping to -3 to 0 overnight.

Current indications present that temperatures may pick up next weekend, but it will still stay cooler than normal for this time of year.
