Temperatures are set to drop to -2 in parts of the country this week

One day in particular will require your warmest jumpers!

Spot flooding, icy stretches, and snow is predicted this week.


Yep, we're now fully into an Irish December, people.

The lovely folks at Met Éireann have set out their forecast for the week ahead, and Monday night looks particularly bleak, as does Friday leading into next weekend.


Monday: Cold, calm and frosty with the risk of icy stretches. Most areas will be dry and clear, though a few showers will affect northern coasts. Lowest temperatures of -2 to +2 degrees Celsius.

Tuesday: Heavy rain will gradually move up from the southwest through the day, reaching all but northern areas by evening. There is a slight risk of sleet or wet snow for a time in parts of the midlands and west. Spot flooding is likely also.

Wednesday: Dry but cold, with highs of only 4 to 7 degrees Celsius. Wet and breezy weather will move in from the west later in the night, possibly some frost in the early night.

Thursday: Wet and breezy through much of the day, but temperatures to break into the double digits.


Friday: Turning cold again, and very windy with showers or longer spells of rain, especially across the northern third of the country.
