Met Éireann warns of heavy snowfall in Ireland again; Country will experience freezing cold this weekend

DUBLIN: The Irish Meteorological Service warns that there will be heavy snowfall in the country again in the coming days and freezing winds will bring Baltic conditions across the country!

Following the heavy snowfall, various parts of the country will be covered in a blanket of snow next week, with “cold northerly air-flow” expected on Friday causing severe frosts in the country, Met Éireann said.  

Last week, a yellow snow alert was issued nationwide for widespread snowfall, but there was snow only in the Donegal region during those days. The children of Ireland waiting for the snow, therefore, are under the preconceived notion that they should trust Met Éireann only when the snow falls.

Met Eireann warns that Friday night could bring ice and frost in sheltered spots, while Saturday and Sunday will get colder again. The minimum temperature will be minus two degrees. Cold winds and heavy snowfall are expected on Sunday. Meanwhile, Met Éireann predicts widespread snowfall in the eastern counties and Leinster.

Weekend weather forecast

Friday is going to experience a mix of sunny spells and showers as cold northerly air-flow is likely. The maximum temperature is three to six degrees. Meanwhile, there is a possibility of rain and hail on Friday night. The minimum temperature ranges from zero to three degrees.
