You’d be forgiven for thinking that the Winter weather was well and truly behind us after the amazing few days we’ve had.
Beer gardens were packed, the light jackets got their first outings and everyone was happy.
But all good things must come to an end – and unfortunately, according to Met Eireann, it’s set to snow again next week.
Don’t worry if you have a nice outing planned with your mammy, though. Mother’s Day is set to be dry with ‘some sunny spells’ with overall temperatures nine to 13 degrees.
But from Monday night, temperatures are set to drop below zero, with ‘wintry showers’ expected.
Met Eireann said:
“Monday night will be cloudy at first with showery rain clearing eastwards to scattered showers and good clear spells and later there is the risk of showers turning wintry.
“It will be cold with lowest temperatures of zero to +3 degrees and a widespread frost. Moderate winds will be west to northwesterly.
“Tuesday will be a cold and blustery day with widespread heavy showers and the risk of hail and thunder.
“Some showers will turn wintry, especially over higher ground.
“Top temperatures will reach just six to eight degrees. West to northwest winds will be moderate to fresh and gusty, but fresh to strong along Atlantic coasts.
“Tuesday night scattered showers will continue with the risk of turning wintry.
“It will be another cold night with lowest temperatures falling to around zero to plus three degrees with frost, especially over the eastern half of the country. Northwesterly winds will turn northerly and strengthen.
