Weather: ‘Possibility’ of snow mid-week

Scattered showers will extend across Ireland today (Monday, February 15th), bringing a risk of isolated thunderstorms, according to Met Éireann.

Showers will gradually clear north-eastwards through the morning with drier and brighter conditions to follow.

It will be mostly dry in the afternoon with bright spells, isolated showers, and highs of 10 to 13 degrees.

Southerly winds will gradually strengthen this evening, with windy conditions expected in the west while a band of rain will extend from the south-west.

Meanwhile, a band of showery rain will move across the country from the west and south-west. Blustery or thundery showers will follow, mainly over the western half of Ireland, with lows of 5 to 8 degrees.

Furthermore, Met Éireann is placing Donegal, Galway, and Mayo under a status yellow wind warning until 9am tomorrow (Tuesday).

“South-westerly winds will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65km/h and gusts of 90 to 110km/h. Where winds are onshore, there is a risk of coastal flooding around high tide.” Met Éireann outlined.

Tuesday

According to Met Éireann, there will be widespread, blustery showers tomorrow with bright and sunny spells to develop later on.

Showers will continue for much of the day, heavy at times during the afternoon, bringing a risk of isolated thunderstorms.

Tomorrow night will see the continuation of widespread showers with lows of 3 to 6 degrees.

Wednesday

According to the national forecaster, there is a risk of hail and isolated thunderstorms on Wednesday, with sunny spells and scattered, blustery showers, most frequent in the west and south.

Persistent rain will arrive in southern counties later in the afternoon with highs of 6 to 9 degrees.

Although there is some uncertainty, a low-pressure system is indicated to move from the south on Wednesday night. Met Éireann expects this to bring widespread rain, strong winds and a risk of flooding.

The national forecaster has warned that there “is a possibility of some sleet and snowfalls too” with lows of 0 to 3 degrees.

Thursday

Meanwhile, it will be wet and windy on Thursday, across much of the country. Rain will be heavy in places with highs of 5 to 9 degrees.

It will become very windy overnight, as rain is set to extend to all areas. The national forecaster has, once again, warned of wintry falls, in the west and north. Temperatures will drop between 1 to 6 degrees during the night.

Friday

According to Met Éireann, it will be windy and wet, but mild on Friday, with rain in all areas to clear to showers.

Further rain will push up from the south, extending northwards through the night. Winds will strengthen again on southern and eastern coasts with lows of 5 to 8 degrees.

Weekend

Looking ahead to the weekend, current indications, Met Éireann outlined, suggest that it will continue to be very mild with widespread rain on Saturday and drier conditions to follow on Sunday.
