MET ÉIREANN IS predicting freezing temperatures over the next few days with snow showers and icy conditions expected up until Wednesday.

The week is forecast to start out “bitterly cold” and “rather cold” thereafter. Tomorrow night will be dry, cold and clear with widespread frost across the country and temperatures are expected to drop as low as -4 degree Celsius.

Some wintry showers of rain, sleet and snow will feed in from the Irish Sea coming into Monday morning (just in time for your commute to work) with a dusting of snow likely across the east of Leinster. Temperatures will remain low for the rest of the day at just 1 to 4 degrees with a significant wind chill, though many places will be dry with good sunshine.

There will be some snow accumulations, but amounts will be fairly small and flurries are expected to clear by night with temperatures dipping as low as -6 degrees Celsius in some areas.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be frosty with a few wintry showers and the occasional sunny spell.

If you spot any of those powdery flakes in your area over the next few days, snap a picture and sent it to tips@thejournal.ie.
