    A specific question I know but how many days per year does the temperature drop to 8 degrees or less? And is there a way to find this out from a specific weather station in the country?

    About 7-8 degrees is the point where my house needs heating turned on so Im just interested to see if I can find out how many days per year temps get this low. Also interested to hear if there is any way to isolate hourly data, i.e how many hours between 5pm and midnight is it below 8c

    8 Degrees at this time of the evening would be unusual in winter, as is the temp ATM.

    Hourly and daily figures are here as well as historical data.

    On a related note, I added the table below to my weather website recently - https://www.loughlinstown.ie/records.html
    Not quite the same but I did find the results interesting:
