Ireland: Yellow low temperature and ice warning as mercury to plummet to -3C

 Wednesday, January 5, 2022 


The temperatures are set to plummet to -3C tonight – with Met Eireann placing the entire country on a low temperature-ice warning tonight.

And weather bosses have said that snow is possible later in the week, while today will be a mainly dry day in many areas, with “spells of crisp winter sunshine”.

The status yellow alert kicks in at 7pm this evening and will remain in place until 10am tomorrow morning

Met Eireann said that tonight and Wednesday morning, widespread sharp frost with icy stretches and lowest temperatures of -3 degrees in many areas may lead to some travel disruption. This tonight will be cold and clear, with a widespread frost developing as temperatures fall from 0C to -3C.

Weather chiefs added that it will be dry with just the odd shower possible near north-eastern coasts. Northwest breezes will fall light, becoming near calm in many areas.

Any overnight patches of frost and ice is set to slowly clear tomorrow morning, as Met Eireann predict another cold and dry day with “plenty of sunshine”.

The highest temperatures will range from just 3C to 6C with a light westerly breeze or near calm conditions.

Early Wednesday night will be windier with southerly winds increasing fresh to strong and gusty.

Met Eireann said that rain will spread from the west overnight to all areas, briefly falling as sleet on higher ground.

Meanwhile, it’s predicted to be more unsettled and generally cold with heavy showers later in the week with some hail, sleet and possibly snow on higher levels.
