Met Eireann tweetz:

Dry and mostly sunny. Top temperatures 19 to 22 C, generally, with light easterly or variable breezes. But fresher along parts of the east and south coasts, with values of 15 to 17 C., due to local onshore sea breezes.

Hate when that happens.

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.
