A cool, dry weekend is on the cards, say Met Éireann
A relatively pleasant weekend.
The social climate in Ireland is particularly tense as we head towards Christmas, with uncertainty over the opening hours of hospitality. However, the actual climate is set to be pretty tolerable over the weekend, so that’s something.
Today (December 17th), the weather is expected to be dry and mostly cloudy with occasional periods of sunshine and middling temperatures of around nine/ten degrees.
After a mild night with lows of between four and seven degrees, Saturday will be another dry day “with occasional brighter breaks,” though we can expect drizzle along the south coast. Temperatures will follow the same pattern throughout the day and night.
Sunday will be almost identical to Friday and Saturday: “It will be cloudy with dry weather for most areas, but there may be some drizzle in southern and eastern coastal areas.” Temperatures will drop further during the night though, with a chilly potential lo of two degrees.
Early next week is expected to be, you guessed it, cloudy and dry. So, no white Christmas on the cards just yet, but at least we’re not soaking wet.
