Cold Spell – Wintry Hazards Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th February – Meteorologists Commentary

As Storm Ciara moves away today, colder air originating from Canada begins to feed down over Ireland. This will bring scattered wintry precipitation later tonight. The risk of snowfall increases during Monday and the risk will continue through Tuesday. While snow showers may develop anywhere they will occur chiefly in parts of the west and north, with some accumulations possible.

The windy conditions that the country has experienced over the last few days will persist and coupled with the colder air it will feel bitterly cold, with significant wind chill.

The animation below depicts regions of warm and cold airmasses. The warmer air is to the south of the country below the Polar Jet stream. The animation shows the much colder air moving in over Ireland over the coming days.
