18th Oct 18 | News

With a plunge in temperatures over the past few days, there have been several reports and rumours that snow is on the way at the end of October.

However, the national forecaster Met Eireann has told the Irish Mirror that there's no indication that this is the case before the month is out.

A spokesperson said:

"Over the next two weeks the weather should be fairly settled.

Temperatures for this time of year are fairly average, but it will get colder towards next weekend (October 27).

While it is to get cold by the end of the month, at the moment our forecasts show no indication that it should snow over the next two weeks."

So don't panic just yet!

In the meantime temperatures are set to rise to a very comfortable 18C over the weekend.

Met Eireann said:

"Mainly dry, settled weather continuing, with just a little patchy light rain or drizzle at times, mainly in western and northern coastal areas, but becoming more widespread for a time later Saturday night into Sunday. Temperatures will be close to normal, a little below normal in places."
