The second half of the coming week is set to turn much colder with heavy wintry showers affecting County Clare.

Met Éireann says lying snow can be expected, particularly away from the coast and on higher ground, during Wednesday night and on Thursday.

“Becoming colder on Thursday with many of the showers turning wintry; snow lying on the higher ground. Daytime temperatures of 2 to 5 degrees in moderate northwesterly winds. More widespread falls of snow overnight as temperatures drop below freezing,” stated Met Éireann.

Irish Weather Online meanwhile, is warning temperatures could dip to low single figures during the daytime on Thursday, Friday and into the weekend as Northwesterly winds turn northerly.

“From Wednesday onwards, polar air masses will move in over Ireland from the west, bringing an increasing risk of wintry showers with current model projections suggesting that it may become even colder towards the weekend as winds back more NW or N,” stated Irish Weather Online, which posted the below graphic.

  1. Is there any way to get a copy of that pic at the top of this story? The one credited to Arthur Ellis?
