Dublin could enjoy its first dusting of the winter period, as a flurry of snow could grace Ireland during the last week of November. According to forecasters, this Friday (November 26) could see Dublin, along with other parts of the country, gripped by extremely wintry conditions.
Experts have predicted that the plummeted temperatures are here to stay, after they tumbled below zero on Monday night. On Friday, Dublin will experience highs of 5°C, and lows of -2°C, with chance of snowfall thrown into the mix.
After a wave of low pressure arrives on Thursday night, Dubliners will wake up to frost on the ground, and could look out of the window to snow showers from around 8am.
And, if you’re not a lover of cold weather you might want to look away; as the it looks likes the low temperatures will be flirting with sub-zero levels well into December. Next Thursday (December 2), for example, Dublin could in be in for a chilly old time — it’s predicted to reach just 2°C, with lows of around -2, which continues into Friday. Dublin could yet endure another snowfall during this period, so it seems like we’re in for a rather premature white Christmas!
Met Eireann for Friday has stated: “Friday will be a cold, windy and showery day, with some showers turning wintry. Highest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees but feeling colder in fresh to strong and gusty northwest winds, with gales possible on some coasts and high ground.”
