It’s been fierce mild lately.
But if you like your Christmas preparations to take place with a Christmassy chill in the air, Met Éireann has some news on that front.
The national forecaster has warned that it will turn “progressively colder through the coming week” with an increasing chance of frost and icy patches and the potential for some wintry precipitation at times.
While Monday night will be mainly dry with light northerly or variable winds, a widespread frost will set in with lowest temperatures of -2 to +2 degrees with icy patches possible.
Any mist, fog, and frost will gradually clear through Tuesday morning to leave a dry day with plenty of sunshine for most.
While afternoon highs will range from 5 to 8 degrees, it will be dry and cold with a mix of cloud and clear spells on Tuesday night and lowest air temperatures of -2 to +3 degrees, with frost and icy patches.
“Thursday looks set to be a rather chilly day.” said a forecaster.
“Afternoon highs of just 2 to 6 degrees in light to moderate northerly winds, freshening on coasts later.”
Best get the thermals out, then.
