Brace yourselves! Met Éireann issue a surprising weather warning

Ladies, it’s not time to pack away that winter coat yet! If you thought we had escaped a somewhat mild winter, then Met Éireann are here to let you know it's not over yet! 

In rather alarming weather news, Met Éireann have issued a yellow alert for Waterford, Monaghan and Leinster between the hours of 6pm today and 8am on Wednesday. Met Éireann have warned that up to 3cm of snow could fall in places over the following days and that temperatures will be freezing, describing lows of -2 to +2 degrees on their official Twitter page.

Similarly, forecasts of snow and ice are in place for Connaught, Clare, Cavan, Cork, Limerick, Kerry and Tipperary. There are also warnings of icy patches that for locations that escape snow showers.

It wouldn't be the first time snow has fallen in January, indeed a lot of you may remember a very white March we had a few years ago!

It looks set to be a stormy and snowy week ahead so make sure you wrap up warm and take extra care on the roads.
