Cold snap on the way bringing wintry showers

It's going to be the coldest end of November and start to December since 2010. That's according to Irish Weather Online (IWO) who say starting from tomorrow, Wednesday, the weather is going to turn much colder, with wind and mixed wintry showers on the way.

"Nothing really mild shows up on the charts for two weeks although temperatures remain in the marginal zone for snow to accumulate in any showers," said the IWO team.

"I wouldn't say this looks like 2010 but it's probably going to be the coldest late November or early December weather since then," they continue.

"There's no guarantee of snow in all locations, just some scattered falls that will be partly dependent on elevation, and partly a function of what time of day fronts pass any given location (more chance of snow in the overnight and morning hours)".

Wednesday is due to turn somewhat colder, with outbreaks of rain with 10 - 20mm possible, while Thursday will be windy and much colder, with temperatures falling steadily to between 2 - 5 degrees.

Friday will be windy and cold once again, with mixed wintry showers, and a risk of an interval of steady wet snow or sleet in the southeast. Saturday will be blustery and cold with wintry showers, while Sunday will see a sharp frost with lows of -4 to -1 degrees, with sleet and snow in some places by evening. It's more of the same on Monday and it will remain cold for several more days.

Wrap up warm foks it about to get wintry out there!
