Dublin Braces for a Cold Snap as Met Eireann Predicts Hail

Dublin residents should prepare to wrap up warm as Met Eireann forecasts a return to the cold snap with plummeting temperatures and frosty nights. However, the rest of the week is expected to be dry with minimal to no rain.

Today, Dublin will experience cold and breezy conditions with some sunshine. While scattered showers are possible in the afternoon, the risk of hail is small. Temperatures are predicted to be around 7 or 8 degrees but will feel colder due to a brisk northwesterly wind.

Tonight, the showers will ease, leaving mostly clear and dry conditions, but temperatures will drop to between 0 and +2 degrees, resulting in frost and icy patches.


Tomorrow will be largely dry with sunny spells, which may become hazy at times. The highest temperatures are predicted to be around 7 or 8 degrees.

Met Eireann’s national outlook does not provide further information for Dublin, but Thursday night will bring increasing cloud cover with some light rain and drizzle in certain areas.


On Friday, a mostly dry day with a mix of cloud and bright or sunny spells is expected, with just isolated patches of light rain near the northern and western coasts. Friday night is forecast to be dry with clear spells, but with increasing clouds towards morning. Saturday will be a dry day with a mix of cloud and sunshine, with temperatures ranging from 7 to 10 degrees.

Dublin residents should expect a cold few days, but the dry conditions will provide a respite from the recent storms. It’s important to stay warm and take care on the icy patches.

While Dubliners are used to chilly weather, the freezing conditions can still cause inconvenience and pose dangers on the road. Pedestrians and motorists should be cautious, especially during the morning when icy patches are more common.

The Met Eireann forecast also has implications for farmers, gardeners, and outdoor workers. They should prepare for the colder weather and take necessary measures to protect their plants, crops, and livestock.
