If you’re currently inside – stay there: it’s officially SNOWING!


We had been warned that wintry conditions were set to hit the island – and it's now official: it's SNOWING in Ireland.

One caller told 2fm's Breakfast Republic that a bit of a blizzard is going on in Wicklow, while others around the country have been posting snaps of their own mini winter wonderlands on social media.

Kristine Boyd is this morning in Belfast – where the snow is coming down fast and heavy.

And Maeve McGrath in Kerry captured her dog on a snowy walk this morning. 

There is also snowfall in Tipperary.

As well as in Ballymena in Co. Antrim.

Met Éireann has said that it will be "very cold today," with "some hill snow in places" which "will turn increasingly to sleet and snow at lower levels this morning, mainly over Ulster, Connacht and west Munster and in remaining areas this afternoon and evening."

And if that wasn't enough to make you want to hibernate, it adds: "Some thunderstorms are likely to develop also. Top afternoon temperatures of just 2 to 4 C., and feeling colder in the strengthening west to northwesterly wind."
