Met Eireann is forecasting snow in parts of Ireland this week as big weather changes are expected


Ireland has a big chance this week as wintry temperatures bring snow showers to some areas.

Conditions should be changeable and generally unsettled with generally mild weather, but as the week progresses it should get much colder.

Today, January 31, will be dry in most areas, but there will be isolated heavy showers in the north and northeast.

Light rain or drizzle will mainly affect the north and northwest, especially during this evening, with high temperatures of 8 to 10 degrees in moderate westerly winds.

Tonight should be mostly cloudy to overcast with some light rain or drizzle, but mostly over Ulster.

Dry weather will continue elsewhere with only a few patches of drizzle and lowest temperatures of 5-9 degrees, Met Eireann said.

Tuesday will be a breezy, dull day with many areas overcast, with scattered drizzle or light rain, but again many other areas will experience dry spells.

Wednesday will bring a decent amount of dry weather to start with drizzle in spots.



How does Wednesday look

The weather will be mostly cloudy with occasional clearer periods, but the drizzle will become more persistent in the west through the afternoon.

Highest temperatures will range from 9 to 11 degrees in light to moderate southwesterly winds.

Then on Thursday, things start to take a turn with the arrival of heavy rain at times, moving northwest during the morning, before spreading southeast across the country in all regions during the daytime.

It will become windier and can be squally at times as the southwest winds change from cool to strong and gusty.

Winds will veer to the west later as drier, clearer and colder weather develops in the north and west.

Snow is expected to arrive overnight in Ulster, with lows of 0 to +4 degrees expected.

Friday will then bring cold and windy weather with a few showers alongside bright or sunny intervals.

There will be a few hail or sleet showers in the morning, mostly over Ulster, but the showers will ease later in the day as the westerly winds ease.

As for the weekend, the Irish forecaster’s current outlook will see conditions “become milder and cloudier again over the weekend with showers.

“The showers will mainly affect northern areas with drier weather further south. Also windy at times, in a westerly airflow.
