Cold snap set to grip the Country from Tomorrow

The best advice tomorrow could be to wrap up warm as a cold front that is expected to last 48 hours is set to hit most of the country.

Snow, sleet and hail are on the way as “bitterly cold” weather is forecast from tomorrow afternoon onwards and the cold spell is expected to last well into the weekend.

The incoming frontal system will effect most of the country with moderate accumulations of snow over high ground and in inland areas of Connacht, Ulster and Munster with light accumulations in northern and western Leinster.

Eastern parts of Leinster are also at risk, however, accumulations could only be minor or slight depending on slight variations in temperatures during the day.

However, the biggest problem could be wind chill. Wicklow Weather expect highs of 4c tomorrow afternoon but it will feel like -5 at best. This is also likely to be accompanied by strong winds in exposed parts which could make conditions worse.


This is likely to lead to very dangerous driving condition’s in parts on Thursday morning. Keep up to date with the latest weather here.
