Dublin: 4 °C Wednesday 19 February, 2020

It's colder in Meath than it is in Minsk right now...

It’s set to drop as low as minus three tomorrow night too.

TAKES A BIT of getting used to every winter, doesn’t it?

Sure, while there would be nothing remarkable about the current cold snap if this was January, people have been taking to social media to greet the first wintry showers of the season and tell the world about their trips to buy some new winter woolies.

These are, for the record, the coolest conditions we’ve experienced so far this season.

Temperatures today are hovering between four and six degrees in much of the country – making, for instance, Meath colder than the Belarusian capital Minsk at the moment.

It will drop as low as zero in some areas overnight – but the chilliest conditions of the weekend are expected tomorrow night, when it’s set to drop as low as minus three. 

The temperatures are set to recover heading into next week though. Here’s the latest outlook from Met Éireann:

This weekend’s Polar air mass will be replaced by a milder westerly airflow moving in from the Atlantic bringing air temperatures up to between 9 and 13 degrees by day and not falling generally below 4 to 8 degrees at night with little if any frost.
