Temperatures to plummet below freezing

Temperatures are expected to plummet to -3 degrees later this week, according to Met Eireann as a cold snap descends on the country.

Furthermore, the wet and windy weather we have been experiencing in the last week is likely to continue until tomorrow at least.

A forecaster from Met Eireann said – “Thursday is looking largely dry and bright with some sunshine breaking through. Highest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees. Winds will be light or moderate northerly.

“Turning cold on Thursday night, especially in the north and east where temperatures will drop back to between -3 and 0 degrees under clear skies, leading to frosty conditions.”

Friday is looking set to be a dry day with temperatures remaining cold. Wet conditions could return for the weekend.
