Wednesday, 17 January 2018 08:54

Frost, ice and lying snow will largely clear at lower elevations by this afternoon, with sunny spells developing. Scattered showers will continue however, with some still wintry in the north and on higher ground. Fresh to strong and gusty westerly winds will gradually moderate through the day. Later this afternoon, heavy and persistent rain will push into Atlantic coastal counties in strengthening south to southwest winds. The rain will spread further inland during the evening and possibly turn to sleet or snow over Ulster and north Leinster. Cold with afternoon temperatures of just 3 to 7 degrees.


This evening and early tonight will become very windy as a spell of heavy rain spreads eastwards and clears to scattered showers later in the night. However, in the north rain will turn to sleet and snow leading to significant accumulations of snow. Westerly winds will be very strong with severe gusts over Leinster, Munster and parts of Connacht but in the north winds will be fresh to strong. But as the rain clears winds will moderate. Lowest temperatures will be 0 to +4 degrees.
