Weather: What’s in store after Storm Dennis?

It will be cold and blustery today with some sunny spells and scattered showers with an ongoing risk of hail and thunder, according to Met Éireann.

There is a possibility of some wintry showers, mainly over higher ground close to the Atlantic. Temperatures will reach between 6 to 9 degrees, dropping between 0 to 4 degrees tonight.

Scattered showers are set to continue overnight, with longer spells of rain later on and a risk of some wintry falls on high ground. Some frost is possible in sheltered areas.

Tuesday – It will be another cold and blustery day with some widespread showers or longer spells of rain for a time tomorrow morning.

It will be drier and bright in the afternoon; however, scattered showers, some of which will be wintry, will follow in the afternoon also with a risk of hail and thunder.

Temperatures will be in the region of 5 to 8 degrees, although the national forecaster has warned that it may feel colder due to the “added wild-chill factor”.

Temperatures will range from 7 to 10 degrees, before dropping to 1 to 4 degrees on Wednesday night. There will be further outbreaks of rain, which will be heaviest and most persistent across the western half of Ireland.

Thursday – Heavy rain will clear before sunny spells and scattered showers will follow from the west with highs of 5 to 8 degrees. Clear spells and scattered showers are expected on Thursday night, but it will turn breezy across the west and north. 

Friday – Current indications from Met Éireann suggest that it will be a wet day with spells of rain – some of which will be heavy in places with a “renewed” risk of spot flooding and highs of 9 to 12 degrees.
