Ireland’s hopes for a white Christmas have been dashed once again.
Unfortunately, forecasters say the country won’t be experiencing any snow this Christmas Day - with some wet weather expected instead.
A status yellow rain warning has been issued for Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Waterford, with a risk of some localised flooding in those areas.
However, the good news is there’s set to be some dry weather for anyone hoping to get out and about after tomorrow.
Harm Luijkx - Met Éireann meteorologist - spoke to Newstalk Breakfast about the forecast for the days ahead.
He told Shane: “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.
