Will we have snow? Will we have rain? Read below for this weekend’s weather forecast.

According to our friends at Met Éireann, today will be a cloudy and mild one, with highest temperatures of between 10 to 12 degrees in light breezes. Tonight will see little change, with misty, damp conditions promised, and patches of fog. Lows of between 7 to 10 degrees celsius.

Tomorrow will again be mild, but mostly dry on Saturday. Temperatures will range from 9 to 11 degrees, in moderate southwesterly breezes. Some brighter spells will break through the cloud during the day.

Saturday night will be mainly dry, with breezy and fresh, gusty southwest winds. There will be the odd patch of drizzle, with lows of between 7 to 10 degrees.

Christmas eve will be rather windy, in fresh and gusty southwest winds. Rain is expected to push across the north and west, which will become persistent for coastal counties. It will be cloudy in most other places, with highest temperatures of between 10 to 12 degrees celsius.

Christmas day, Monday, will see heavy rain affecting Atlantic counties, which will also extend countrywide. It will start off mild, but become colder as the day progresses, with winds veering westerly. It will be very cold Christmas night, with frost and ice expected, along with scattered and the occasional wintry shower.

Next week looks set to be a cold one as well, with early forecasts promising “wintry falls”.
