Drive safely this morning.
A status yellow fog warning will be in place for the whole of Ireland until 11am this morning, due to poor visibility and risky driving conditions.
After a cloudy but dry day, the fog will return this evening as Met Éireann forecasts: “Cloudy and mostly dry tonight with some mist and fog in places. A few spots of drizzle possible too. A touch of frost forming locally under any clear spells. Lowest temperatures generally of 3 to 6 degrees.”
Tomorrow will be much the same, with “a few brighter spells locally” throughout Munster. Once again, temperatures will fall to between 3 and 6 degrees at night.
Rain will spread across the country on Wednesday morning before easing off during the afternoon. Unfortunately, there is more rain likely again in the evening and early night. It will be a bit milder on Wednesday with highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees in moderate to fresh south to southeast breezes.
This rain will clear by Thursday, which will be a mild day with temperatures between 9 and 12 degrees.
The worst news of all is that Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are both expected to be pretty miserable, with rain on both days and temperatures between 5 and 9 degrees (and, crucially, no snow).
