In many parts of the country, Christmas Day was baaaaalllltic. But the weather forecast for the rest of the week is looking a bit more hopeful.

According to Met √Čireann, St Stephen’s Day is set to be “wet and windy at first today in northern areas, but some dry intervals will develop in most parts early in the day, with some bright spells and winds easing overland.”

Meanwhile, wet and windy conditions will continue to clear overnight with minimum temperatures of between 5 to 9 degrees.

Stephens day weather forecast

Tomorrow is set to be “cloudy and breezy, with limited bright spells”.

Met √Čireann also details: “There will be a lot of dry weather across the country with patchy rain and drizzle mostly confined to parts of the northwest. Highest temperatures of 11 to 13 degrees in moderate southerly winds.”

Friday night will also be “mild and breezy overnight with temperatures not falling below 7 or 8 degrees.”

It’ll also be “mainly dry with just the odd spot of drizzle along western and northern coasts.”

For anyone wanting to get out for a stroll over the weekend before returning to work, things are also looking bright.

Met √Čireann predicts that Saturday will warm enough for this time of year:

“Breezy with fresh southerly winds, which may increase strongly in some exposed coastal areas. A lot of dry weather is expected, but it will be generally cloudy. Some rain may affect parts of the northwest coast through the day and overnight. Dry otherwise. Highest temperatures 10 to 12 degrees. Mild overnight with lows of 8 to 10 degrees.”

And it’s a similar story with Sunday:

“Mainly dry and mild with highs of 11 to 13 degrees. A lot of dry, bright weather, but rain is set to develop sometime late on Sunday along the northwest coast. Winds will be moderate to fresh and southerly in direction. The rain will edge into western and northern areas overnight on Sunday. Mild overnight, with lows of 7 to 9 degrees.”
