Temperatures dropped below zero for the first time this winter last night.
Despite the chilly start however, things are looking up for the first half of the week, with Met Eireann predicting Monday will be ‘dry and bright with good sunshine’ and temperatures of between 10 and 12C.
The national forecaster predicts it will remain largely dry tonight with minimum temperatures of 2 to 5 degrees.
What about the week ahead?
Good news: the October sunshine is sticking around for a bit too; Tuesday looks set to be a predominantly dry day with sunny intervals and highest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees.
We can expect scattered outbreaks of rain across the country on Wednesday ‘with the odd heavy burst’, but current indications suggest it will be cool and mostly dry on Thursday with some sunny spells and highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees.
Fingers crossed the wether holds out for the Jazz Festival, kicking off on Friday, October 25th, 2019 with a red hot ‘Blaze of Jazz Parade’ through the streets of Cork City at 7pm.
