Winter to dominate in spring as well; Met Eireann predicts “showers of hail, sleet and snow” across Ireland

DUBLIN: Met Eireann predicts a change in the current climate by Easter Sunday. Easter Sunday will “see a big change as much colder air arrives across the country, introducing the chance of wintry showers of hail, sleet and snow,” Met Eireann said.

Met Éireann meteorologist, Matthew Martin says winter will make a dramatic ‘re-entry’ into the Irish climate with Easter. “High pressure will establish across Ireland in the run-up to Easter, allowing a spell of settled weather lasting until the first half of Easter Sunday,” he said.

On Saturday, the weather will be sunny and dry. Temperatures in the range of 10 to 13 degrees Celsius are expected. Saturday night will be dry with clear spells and some patches of mist and fog. The minimum temperature will be 0C to 4C.

The temperature will drop and the weather will be cool by Easter Sunday afternoon. The Cork region may receive better sunlight. The weather will be dry from early morning in most parts of the country. “A cold front will introduce cloud and rain across the northern half of the country through the afternoon – it’s this cold front that opens the gates to very cold air from the Arctic from Easter Sunday night and through much of next week,” Mr. Martin said.

“Some wintry showers may develop overnight on north-facing coasts. Lowest temperatures of -2C to 2C with frost in places,” Met Eireann said.

The cold weather will continue on Easter Monday as well. Some wintry showers and rainfall are also possible, mostly in the northern half of the country. Rainfall and snow are expected along with cold winds throughout Ireland. The temperature will drop to between -2C and 2C degrees on Easter Monday night.

It will remain cold with sunny spells and scattered showers, across the country on Tuesday. Highest temperatures range from 5C to 8C.
