And high speed winds of more than 50 miles per hour are also set to hit the county as the remnants of ex-Hurricane Ophelia sweeps past the north west of Ireland en route to northern Scotland.
No damage is expected from the storm at this stage.
Peter O’Donnell, of irishweatheronline said of Thursday’s forecast: “It will be turning quite cool in westerly to northwesterly winds 30-50 mph, squally showers, lows near 7 C and highs near 12 C north to 14 C south. Risk of hail and even a bit of snow on higher summits of Connacht and Donegal.”
The cold snap will bring a shuddering shivering end to what has been some of the mildest weather we have seen in Co Donegal in October for years.Tags:
