Met Eireann Predicts Freezing Weather with Dramatic Change

Met Eireann has predicted a few more days of freezing temperatures for Ireland this week, with the mercury dropping to as low as -1 degree, and temperatures remaining in the single digits.

However, the national forecaster also foresees a dramatic change in the coming days, with low pressure dominating from the start of next week.

After a pleasant, dry week, persistent outbreaks of rain are expected, with unsettled conditions. Met Eireann’s long-range forecast predicts that temperatures will be average for this time of the year.

Today will be dry with lovely sunny spells, with temperatures ranging from 7 to 9 degrees. Tonight will mostly be cloudy, with a chance of showers and temperatures dropping to -1 to +3 degrees, with patches of frost expected.

Tomorrow will be partly cloudy, with a low chance of some passing showers in the early hours. The highest temperatures will be between 7 to 9 degrees.

While there is no further forecast for Dublin, here’s what the national outlook says:

Thursday night

“Most areas will be dry with isolated showers, mainly towards the southeast of the country. Lowest temperatures will range from 1 to 5 degrees, with the coolest temperatures under clearer skies in the west. Winds will remain light, northeasterly.


“Another mainly dry day with some showers possible in the east and southeast. It will mostly be cloudy, with the best of any bright spells in western areas in the morning. The maximum temperatures will be around 7 or 8 degrees, with light east to northeast breezes.

Wednesday night

“Mostly cloudy, with a few showers in southern and eastern coastal areas, but dry otherwise. Minimum temperatures will range from 2 to 6 degrees, with east to northeast winds remaining light.


“Mostly cloudy, with just occasional bright spells. There will be isolated showers during the morning and afternoon, clearing later in the day. The highest temperatures will be between 7 to 9 degrees, with very light easterly or variable breezes.

In conclusion, while Ireland is set to experience a few more days of freezing temperatures, a dramatic change is on the horizon, with persistent outbreaks of rain expected in the coming week.
