Weather chiefs are forecasting snow and storms to hit Dublin and Ireland over the winter months.
Dublin weather forecast: Snow and storms forecast by Met Eireann as winter approaches
But don’t start salting your driveway just yet because the national forecaster is unsure of when the country will see the first dusting of snow.
Deirdre Lowe, a Met Eireann forecaster said: “There’s likely going to be snow at some point in the Northwest, but we don’t know when.”
While yesterday saw temperatures hitting 20C, colder temperatures are expected moving forward with a risk of storms.
Ms Lowe said: “Next week looks unsettled with a risk of storms.”
Wednesday was particularly warm with temperatures reaching up to 20C.
Thursday will also see warm temperatures from 14C in the northwest to 19C in the southeast.
But nights will be cold with temperatures as low as 1C.
Friday daytime will be a lot colder with the highest temperatures being as low as 12C.
Forecasters in the UK have warned of a four-month freeze set to grip Ireland and the UK at the end of the year.
Brutal ice storms could blast Ireland and the UK from December as extreme weather rolls in from the Pacific Ocean, Exacta Weather claimed this week.
They said the intense cold snap could last all the way to February next year, making it similar to the big freeze of 2010, which saw the coldest December since records began in 1910.
Forecaster James Madden said: “Long-range predictions have shown for a time that this winter could deliver some particularly cold and snowy conditions.
“We are expecting a number of widespread snow events to occur during early December and then again around mid-month.
"This could bring some potentially crippling snowfall as these fronts will clash with cold air pooled over the UK."
While another long-range weather forecast showed that the chilly assault could start as early as the beginning of November.
It's thought rising temperatures in the Eastern Pacific could soon reach threshold values for an El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) to become established, which would trigger extreme weather patterns across the world.
But will Ireland and Britain really see four months of snow?
This is what Helen Roberts from the Met Office said: “Overall, the probability that the UK-average temperature for September-October-November will fall into the coldest of our five categories is around 5 per cent, and the probability that it will fall into the warmest of our five categories is around 40 per cent.
“We can also expect below-average precipitation in the period up to December, predicted by the UK’s official forecasters as falling into the driest of our five categories, with 20 per cent likelihood - and slightly less likely to be wetter than average.
“Forecasts show it more likely than not that there will be a weak-ish El Nino by the end of the year, though there are currently no signs of ocean warming. But it’s one to keep an eye on.”
