Storm Conor a damp squib as Ireland enjoys mild Christmas Day

There will be some gale force winds tonight, however.

WARNINGS ABOUT A possible Christmas Day storm have proven to be unfounded with most of Ireland remaining dry, although heavy winds are expected later.

Met Éireann says there will be scattered outbreaks of rain but that today’s temperatures will range between 10 to 14 degrees.

The latest rainfall radar shows only localised rain in the midlands and southwest.


Tonight won’t be as calm however, with gale force winds being predicted overnight into St. Stephen’s day and the potential for thundery downpours in the west and north.

Christmas snow certainly won’t be happening this year but some mountainous areas might experience some flurries tomorrow.

Storm Conor, which had been predicted to potentially put pay to plans for Christmas swimming, only affected northern parts of Ireland last night before rolling over Scotland early this morning.
