Snow is expected over the next few days for Ireland.
There is a risk of wintry showers in Ulster today. Temperatures overnight tonight are expected to drop to -3 or even -4 degrees, coldest in the South and East.
Tomorrow night slightly warmer air will push over Ireland from the West as a band of rain is expected overnight Wednesday into Thursday. This rain could turn to snow as it passes over Ulster.
After this much colder air will push over Ireland once again and heavy showers are expected and these could well turn wintry as they move inland.
The West of Ireland looks most likely to see the worst of these showers overnight Thursday into Friday. Still some uncertainty on this as the GFS shows snow hitting the North more than the West so will be interesting to see how this progresses.
Accumulations are possible overnight on higher ground especially but lower ground could see some too!
The picture shows 5 day snow accumulations on the morning ECMWF model.
