It's set to get significantly cooler for a time next week

Two nights of chilly weather.

Met Éireann has said that temperatures may drop for a time next week, with the potential for some frost overnight in places.


The weather has been reasonably good over the past couple of weeks in Ireland, with mean air temperatures around normal for this time of year and sunshine amounts above average across the country.

Thursday will be cloudy in the morning with outbreaks of rain, but these will gradually clear with sunny spells developing in the afternoon. There will be a risk of some heavier showers later, mostly in north, north west and in the midlands.

Highest temperatures will be between 15 and 19 degrees.

We can expect it to be slightly warmer on Friday, with temperatures between 16 and 20 degrees. It will be mostly bright and sunny but there will be the possibility of some scattered showers as well.

Overall, there will be a good deal of dry weather over the weekend, but some scattered showers will occur, mainly on Saturday.

It will be warm on Saturday but we can expect a change on Sunday with temperatures dropping significantly, to as low as 8 degrees during the day and cooler overnight with the risk of a touch of frost on Sunday night as temperatures drop to -1 degrees.

While it will be mainly dry, settled weather from Monday onwards, it will be cooler than we've been experiencing lately with maximum temperatures of 8 to 13 degrees.


There will also be the possibility of some frost on Monday night.

Temperatures will be closer to normal, or a little below from Tuesday to Thursday, with maximum temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees.
