Ringing in the new year outdoors? The rain should clear by midnight

It’s going to be fierce mild.

THERE’S GOOD NEWS for anyone who’s planning on welcoming 2015 outdoors.

Met Éireann has said that while rain is expected in several parts of the country this evening, there’s “a good chance” it will clear before midnight.

Basically, it’s best to bring a brolly with you … but feel free to do this at approximately 11.55pm:

A spokesperson for Met Éireann told TheJournal.ie that temperatures tonight will be unseasonably high – ranging from 6-10 degrees Celsius.

“If it was a daytime temperature in January it wouldn’t be bad at all,” the spokesman noted, adding that night temperatures at this time of year usually range from 2-4 degrees.

“It’s extremely mild for this time of year,” he added.
