The official coldest and warmest temperatures in Ireland in 2018 have been revealed

Two spots in Ireland got the very best and the very worst of the year.

2018 was a bit bonkers, wasn't it?

As we mentioned in amongst the highlights and lowlights of the last twelve months, the weather alone went beyond a simple way to drag out a dying conversation, and became an actual topic that needed discussing.

Between all of the storms, the heavy snowfall, and the endless summer (which doesn't feel so endless in hindsight, does it?), 2018 was a real rollercoaster for forecasters.

Now that the year is officially over, Met Éireann have released the final details for the year from January to December, and in there with all the facts and figures are the highest and lowest temperatures for 2018 in Ireland, and what parts of the country they were recorded in.

The lowest air temperature was recorded in Cork Airport on 1 March, when it dropped all the way down to -7. This was the coldest recorded temperature in Ireland since 2010, and the coldest recorded in the month of March since 1962.

Meanwhile, on the opposite end of the scale, the highest air temperature was on 28 June at Shannon Airport, when it hit 32 degrees. This was the highest recorded temperature, of any month, in all of Ireland since 1948!

Here is hoping 2019 brings all of the good stuff of 2018's summer, but not as much of the bad stuff from the winter!
