Weather outlook for Easter weekend in Kildare

Dry and settled for weekend – but turning colder from Monday

Dry and settled for weekend – but turning colder from Monday

Tonight will be dry with long clear spells, but some patches of mist may develop as northeasterly winds fall off light. Lowest temperatures should be -2° to +2° with frost in places.

While this week has seen glorious highs of 18 degrees in Dublin and the surrounding Leinster area, the south west of the country could see temperatures soar to as high as 19 degrees later today. However, with an Arctic influence the lowest temperatures will be felt in the north with the greatest chance of snow most likely over higher ground in the north and west of the UK.

It will continue dry into Friday evening though it will prove colder than recent days with temperatures sinking to just above freezing.

It will be cooler near east and north coasts, with moderate east to northeast breezes and highest temperatures of 9° and 11°.

"On Easter Sunday, many places will enjoy sunshine but cloud in the northwest will gradually build southeastwards through the morning". Some patches of mist and fog will develop.

California shooting at workplace leaves several dead
Our hearts are with the families impacted by this awful tragedy tonight", California Governor Gavin Newsom said in a tweet . The city of Orange is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Los Angeles and home to about 140,000 people.

The sun and heat will sadly not make it to the Easter weekend when chilly conditions replace near-historic highs.

"Afternoon temperatures will range from 8C to 13C but it will gradually become much colder from the northwest during the evening, so some falls of sleet will be possible in Ulster".

"Sunday night will be cold and breezy".

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said a "cold front" will start moving down from the north, bringing with it colder, windier conditions in stark contrast to the previous "warm southerly winds". It will start off mostly cloudy with outbreaks of rain, sleet and potentially snow in Ulster. It will turn drier from Tuesday away from coasts, which will see further wintry showers, but remaining cold with a risk of widespread overnight frost.

Easter Sunday (April 4) will be dry over much of the country with the best of the sunshine in the south. Afternoon temperatures will only reach around 3 to 7 degrees and there will be an added wind chill in fresh and gusty northwesterly winds.
