It’s more rain, sleet and snow for Cork today, but milder weather is on the way
It’s continuing to look a lot like Christmas.
But while there is more frost, sleet, and snow in our immediate future, Met Éireann says there is, at least, some milder weather just around the corner.
Today, Wednesday, will be cold with sunny spells and scattered showers of rain, sleet, and snow, becoming drier by the evening as the showers become isolated.
It will become cloudy overnight and further outbreaks of rain or sleet will develop, with lowest temperatures of -2 to +1 degrees.
Showers in the morning will stop by the afternoon, giving way to a largely dry with some sunny spells, but we can expect another very cold night on Thursday with minimum temperatures of -4 to -1 degrees. It will be dry with clear spells early on but it will become cloudy overnight and rain or sleet will develop across Munster.
Some rain or sleet is forecast for Friday but it will clear by night, with temperatures ranging from -1 to +6 degrees.
While Saturday will be dull with patches of rain and drizzle, temperatures will rise to 7 to 11 degrees.
Saturday night will be “much milder than recent nights, with minimum temperatures of 7 to 9 degrees, in a light to moderate southerly wind. Cloudy with rain in most areas, heaviest in the west and southwest.” added a forecaster.
“Staying mild and quite cloudy for the early part of next week, with rain at times.”
