DUBLIN, Ireland - The Met Eireann has warned that cold weather, with freezing temperatures, are expected to set in this week.
The forecaster issued a snow and ice warning for the country for this week and said that a polar low is expected to sweep over the country in the coming days.
The Met Eireann said that snowfall is expected in some parts of the country, even though a milder period of weather experienced over the weekend is likely to continue until the middle of the week.
According to the forecaster, polar temperatures are expected to grip the country from Thursday morning.
The weather body said on its website, “Thursday will be a bitterly cold day with fresh, gusty north to northwest breezes and afternoon temperatures of just 3 degrees Celsius to 6 Celsius. The likelihood of snow will increase in the evening and night as temperatures falls to between -2C and 1C,” said Met Éireann in its latest forecast.”
The north and west of the country are set to experience the worst conditions in the coming days.
Met Eireann has said, “Wednesday looks like being a very wet day with showers in all areas but once that clears, the cold temperature will set in. Thursday and Friday will be the coldest period of weather. At the moment it looks like the air will be very cold which brings wintry showers but there will be a greater risk of snow with this.”
According to Meteorologist Joan Blackburn, "A very cold snap will be occurring during the early part of Thursday, prevailing through Thursday evening, overnight and right through Friday, into early Saturday. It's a cold north-westerly flow, it's going to being down a lot of showers, wintery showers, a mix of hail, sleet and snow."
