No White Christmas For Ireland This Year, Forecasters Say

It's going to be a wet rather than a white Christmas this year.

Forecasters say the country won’t be experiencing any snow this Christmas Day, with some heavy rain expected in parts of the country instead.

However, the good news is there’s also some dry weather ahead for anyone hoping to get out and about after tomorrow.

Harm Luijkx - Met Éireann meteorologist - said: “No chance of a white Christmas this year, I’m afraid.

“I know people have been hearing stories - maybe last week there was a chance. But the weather pattern has changed, and I’m afraid it’s going to be a wet day.”

Leinster and Connacht will see the heaviest rain tomorrow.

Munster and Ulster will fare a bit better, with some dry periods from the early afternoon.

St Stephen’s Day is looking like a drier day for anyone hoping for some post-Christmas fresh air or outdoor activities.

There will be some showers on Sunday, but Monday’s set to be a dry day with sunny spells.

The early forecasts for next week are suggesting the weather will be “quite unsettled”, so make sure to make the most out of the dry weather when it arrives.
