This morning.

Met Eireann has issued a snow and ice warning for Connacht, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Longford, Louth, Wicklow, Offaly, Westmeath and Meath.

The warning is relevant from Saturday at 11pm until Sunday at 11pm.

It forecasts:

“Significant falls of snow are expected Saturday night and into Sunday.

“Accumulations of 4 to 8 cm could occur quite widely with greater totals possible. Drifting snow locally at times too with brisk winds.

“Slippery paths and treacherous roads also due to snow accumulation and ice.”

Meanwhile, Met Eireann meteorologist Siobhan Ryan has just described the impending snowfall as a “dumping of snow” as opposed to a “scattering of snow” on RTE’s News At One.

Jaykers.

UPDATE:


Behold the GMC Sierra 2500HD All Mountain concept vehicle – a tracked, snow-ready offroader based on GMC’s hefty 2500HD Denali Crew Cab with racks in the back for snowboards and LED lights in the wheel wells.

Brahs will be stoked.

Very cold and windy tonight, with a mix of clear spells and scattered showers, the showers turning increasingly to hail, sleet and snow in Ulster, Connacht and in north Leinster, with some accumulations by morning.

More persistent rain and sleet will move in across much of Munster later in the night, with some snow, mainly over high ground.

Minimum temperatures minus 1 to plus 2 Celsius, in fresh westerly winds, strong along north and northwest coasts.

Tomorrow, Thursday, will be bitterly cold, with scattered showers, many falling as hail, sleet and snow, some of them heavy and thundery, especialy in the west and north.

Some sunny spells also, especially in eastern and southeastern coastal areas, where the showers will be more scattered.

In Munster and parts of south Leinster, it will be cloudy in the morning, with more persistent rain and sleet for a time, but there is also a risk of snow
