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.

Met Éireann sez:

It will be another fine and sunny day across the country. However, it will be somewhat cloudier along the northwest coast with hazy sunshine and top temperatures there of 18 or 19 degrees in a light to moderate onshore breeze. It will be warm elsewhere with top tempertures reaching 20 to 25 degrees and winds will be just light variable.

Yay!
