Forecasts for Ireland courtesy of Ireland Weather Online 


TODAY will be mostly cloudy and breezy, rather cold with passing showers that will contain some hail near sea level and sleet or wet snow on higher terrain especially in parts of the north. By afternoon, rain or sleet will move into the south and central counties, then spreading to the east by early evening. This mixed wintry precipitation may turn to snow especially on hills in the southeast, before ending by late evening. Highs today will be 4 to 7 C.

TONIGHT will become partly cloudy and there may be further wintry showers. However, it will trend milder again by the early morning hours. Lows 1 to 3 C.

WEDNESDAY will be partly to mostly cloudy with occasional light rain, still some risk of wintry precipitation on higher terrain, highs 5 to 8 C.

THURSDAY will bring intervals of rain, strong southerly winds, and milder temperatures briefly reaching about 10 to 12 C.

FRIDAY will be breezy, partly cloudy and colder with highs 7 to 9 C.

Week of unsettled weather in prospect

The trends after that will be more settled for a few days, as higher pressure builds up. At first it may be rather cold especially overnight with slight frosts returning. By about Monday milder southwest winds will push in, with highs back up to 10 or 11 C. The following week looks like being rather variable with some colder days, some back into the mild westerly flow, but generally dry and more settled than we’ve had most of this past month.
