Snow, strong winds, high volatility and even some sunshine is expected over the next fortnight, according to Midland Weather Channel.
Cathal Nolan said that it looks likely that snow may fall in some parts by the end of next week.
He explained that the latest weather models indicate that deepening area of low pressure may develop to the southwest of Ireland on Monday next before deepening rapidly upon approach to Ireland and becoming a potentially powerful Atlantic storm.
“Being so far out meteorologically-speaking, there remains a strong degree of uncertainty, but as ever, I personally believe it’s best to provide the details of what may occur and explain my thought process unlike some more conservative now-casters as opposed to forecasters.” Nolan explained in a post on social media.
“Beyond Tuesday, the general consensus among the models at present is for a period of cold weather to develop with our winds switching to a north-westerly or northerly direction, Nolan added.
Heavy wintry showers, which are likely to fall as a mix of sleet and snow initially, are expected.
These will gradually turn to snow for a time at least next Thursday and Friday, giving some accumulations of snow in places, most especially across the northwest, north, and north midlands.
Areas further south and east will “escape relatively lightly” with little or no precipitation.
“A brief milder interlude seems likely around the weekend of 13th and 14th as a ridge of high pressure is expected to settle things down for a day or two.” The post added.
There will be a renewed risk of snow in places, as colder air pushes in from the northwest as we process into December 15th and 16th.
