According to Met Eireann, the weather is going to get colder in the next few days, with daytime temperatures forecasted to be just 2C next week, reports The Mirror.

There will be frost, icy patches and a possibility of snow.

The temperature will drop to as low as -2C on Monday night and will be between 5C to 8C during the day on Tuesday.

Freezing conditions are expected to continue overnight. On Wednesday night, Ireland might see its first snow of the season.

The meteorological service said: “Showers will develop on northern and northwestern coasts towards morning, some heavy with a risk of hail and sleet,” reports The Mirror.

Giving a day-by-day breakdown of what to expect, Met Eireann said: “Damp and mostly cloudy to begin Sunday, with outbreaks of rain and drizzle. Brighter and clearer conditions in the west and southwest, however, with scattered showers, will gradually extend eastwards over the country as the day goes on. Highest temperatures of 8C to 12C, with light to moderate southerly winds becoming westerly,” reports The Mirror.

“Some clear spells, but rather cloudy overall Sunday night, with showers merging to longer spells of rain at times, mainly in the west. Later in the night, cloud with patchy rain and drizzle will spread down from the north. Mist and fog patches will form as winds fall light westerly or variable, becoming northerly by morning. Lowest temperatures of 3C to 7C,” reports The Mirror.

“Cloud with patchy light rain and drizzle, will continue to clear southwards on Monday morning with cooler, clearer and sunnier conditions extending from the north. Isolated showers will occur in the afternoon, especially over Leinster. Light to moderate northerly breezes will be fresher near the east coast. Afternoon highs of 6C to 10C. Mainly dry Monday night with light northerly or variable winds. A widespread frost setting in with lowest temperatures of -2C to 2C with icy patches possible. Patchy mist and fog also,” reports The Mirror.

“Any mist, fog and frost will gradually clear through Tuesday morning to leave a dry day with plenty of sunshine for most. A few showers are possible along northern and northwestern coasts. Cloud will increase in western and northwestern counties towards evening. Afternoon highs will range 5C to 8C in light, variable breezes,” it added, reports The Mirror.
