Don’t put away the de-icer just yet.
Met Eireann has warned of icy conditions from Wednesday with snow and flooding forecast for some places.
Temperatures are set to plunge to zero as the cold snap we experienced recently returns once more.
The national forecaster warned “Unsettled and turning colder with some wintry falls possible.”
Met Eireann say there will be some frost tonight too, where skies clear, and it will be rather cold, with lowest temperatures of 1 to 4C in light southwest breezes.
Early Monday there will be some brighter spells but it will be generally dull and overcast with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, turning heavy in places later.
Tuesday will be very wet nationwide with heavy spells of rain, possibly turning wintry at times in the north.
Met Eireann say “spot flooding is likely” with low cloud and mist too.
It will be rather cold across the northern half of the country with highest temperatures ranging from 4 to 8C in light variable breezes.
However, it will be less cold across the southern half of Ireland with highest temperatures of 8 to 11C in moderate to fresh southwest breezes.
On Tuesday night, there will be scattered outbreaks of rain after dark with localised wintry falls.
Frost and ice will set in too, especially across the northern half of Ireland, with lowest temperatures of -2 to +5C in light to moderate north to northeast breezes.
On Wednesday, Met Eireann warn of outbreaks of rain, possibly turning to “sleet and snow” at times, in moderate northeast winds.Tags:
