If you were hitting the town on St Patrick's Day last year, you may recall the bout of snowfall that descended on revellers late into the night. 

Despite the weather, we rarely let our Paddy's Day spirits be dampened, which is just as well, because we may see a similar weather pattern occurring this Sunday. 

On Saturday night, temperatures will drop as low as -1, setting us up for a very wintry Paddy's Day. 

Moving into Sunday, it will be bright and cold, with wintry showers – either snow, sleet or freezing rain. 

According to Met Eireann: 'Sunday, St Patrick's day is likely to be a bright and cold day with sunny spells and scattered showers, some of the showers could be wintry.'

'Top temperatures 7 to 9 degrees in a moderate to fresh northwesterly breeze.'

So, make sure you have your best green winter jacket ready to go.

Last night, passengers travelling through Dublin Airport were forced to sleep in the terminals as some flights were delayed by a number of hours. 

Met Eireann issued a status yellow snow and ice warning, and it followed through. 

Following the snowfall across Ireland yesterday, which meant that a de-icing procedure of aircrafts was necessary. 

'Some airlines are experiencing delays to their flight schedules as a result of de-icing issues.'

'Passengers are advised to check with their airline for latest flight updates. We apologise for any inconvenience caused,' Dublin Airport tweeted.

Passengers have been sharing their experiences on Twitter, including images of empty food shelves in the food hall areas of the airport, and people strewn across floors and seats sleeping.

'Only a few people were given water and food vouchers. It's an absolute disgrace,' passenger Sinead O'Reilly said, who was very unhappy with Ryanair's handing of the extensive delays. 

'People queued up for nearly 5 hours and were told that Ryanair couldn't do anything for them Re accommodation etc as the desk was closed,'she added in a tweet. 

Passengers are advised to check with their various air travel providers for updates of delays and cancellations.

It seems like such a long time ago when Frozen first hit our screens, bringing incredible music, stunning animation and beautiful characters for every age to enjoy. Let It Go became an anthem, winning dozens of awards along the way.

Our favourite ice Queen Elsa and her loving sister Anna were torn apart as children when Elsa's magical powers became too hard to control.

The massively successful film saw the siblings reunite alongside some hilarious and charming friends; the comedic snowman Olaf, stubborn Kristoff and his trusty reindeer, Sven.

Finally, a trailer for the much-anticipated sequel has been released, and Elsa doesn't look like she's in Arendelle anymore.

Elsa must brave an entirely new element in the teaser trailer from Disney, which shows the Queen (played by Idina Menzel) conquering a gigantic wave of the ocean and joining familiar faces like Princess Anna, Olaf and Kristoff.

Directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck once again join forces for the film, as well as song-writer married couple Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.

Lee is co-writing the script with Hidden Figures scribe Allison Schroeder, hinting to Variety that the upcoming adventure will be "bigger" and "more epic" than the initial release; “They’re going to go far out of Arendelle."

Frozen became an instant sensation after it was released back in 2013, raking in over $1.3 billion at the box office, as well as two Academy Awards.

It's also the highest-grossing animated film ever made, and the 13th biggest flick of all time. It was even adapted as a Broadway musical last year, and was nominated for three Tonys.

Frozen 2 hits the cinemas on November 22, get ready for the return of our favourite magical sisters.

"There will be widespread frost with icy stretches on untreated surfaces." they added, stating the potential for further significant snowfall on Thursday around the country.

The warning will be updated tomorrow morning, and will be in place until Saturday at 6pm.

Today, we're expecting a cold day with a mixture of sunny spells and scattered wintry showers, as rain and sleet clears eastwards.

There is also a risk of hail and thunder in Atlantic coastal areas, with the western half of the county expecting showers and snowfall.

Maximum temperatures will range from two to five degrees, let's hope we don't get snow like last year. 

Thursday will see sleet and snow continuing across the south of Ireland, but the northern half of the country should remain dry. Severe frost is incoming on Thursday night, with temperatures of just one to four degrees.

Yikes…wrap up warm out there. Hopefully it doesn't drop too far below zero degrees.

Finding the perfect getaway can be a challenging business; you want to feel at ease, relaxed and replenished, but where can you find a spot with the perfect amount of privacy mingled with life-changing views?

Well, this tree hotel in the northern Swedish forests offers rooms perched among the pines with an awesome aesthetic landscape to boot.

It's essentially something straight out of a dream, with different room types like the Bird's Nest, The Cabin and the UFO (legit a flying saucer).

Each of the seven available rooms are all modern variations of tree houses designed by Scandinavian architects, which allow you to bond with nature in the lap of luxury. 

The Tree Hotel is so private and remote that you have to fly all the way from Stockholm to the Lulea Airport, and then the hotel organises for a car to collect you, or for a train journey.  

You can totally disconnect and enjoy the natural lifestyle, as well as possessing that crucial WiFi in case you need to post an emergency Instagram of your incredible surroundings. Oh. it also has HEATED FLOORS and towers.

There's also a gorgeous restaurant on the property which makes sure to serve only local ingredients. Daytime activities include dog sled tours, ice fishing and photography walks.

You might need to tap into your savings to afford this one, however. Prices range from about €113 to €680 per night, depending on the time of year and type of room.

Maybe add it to the bucket list, or find a sugar daddy to help you out (joking…joking…)

Absolute boujee-ness goals.

The UK Arctic blast may be heading towards Ireland, according to the predictions of weather experts Met Éireann and Midland Channel.

There's a possibility of heavy snow and disruptions, so people are preparing for some seriously cold frost.

If the UK's forecast is anything to go by, severe sleet could hit the country this weekend. The UK are facing severe sleet and snow at the moment, which could easily come our way.

According to the Midland Channel;

"As skies remain clear this evening temperatures will fall away quiet rapidly across the country with a widespread ground frost likely as air temperatures dip to as low as -2 or -3 degrees Celsius.

"Showers during the day have lead to rather damp road conditions and as temperatures fall below freezing some icy stretches are likely. Do take care if you are travelling this evening, especially on secondary roads."

If anyone remembers the Beast From the East in 2018, they can recall the chaos caused by the snow. I mean, a Lidl was destroyed for God's sake. 

A yellow warning for snow and ice across the country has been issued by the Met Office, who are calling the warning an "arctic blast".

Met Office meteorologist Marco Petagna said:

"Things are turning colder, but it is just more typical winter conditions. It has been so mild this winter that it will be a bit of a shock to the system even though temperatures will be average for this time of year or just below."

Met Éireann also claimed that Ireland possibly could see a fall of snow on Thursday night.

"The freshening southerly winds will become strong southeasterly on Thursday night ahead of rain developing in the west."

"Temperatures will be below freezing in places and the rain will be preceded for a time by a fall of snow as it spreads eastwards across the country."

Batten down the hatches, lads, and whip out the blankets ASAP.

Met Éireann has given us some chilly news today: cold and frosty winds could pair with low temperatures to give us a bitterly frosty Bank Holiday Weekend.

Forecasters are now saying that this arctic weather could go on until the end of the month, so prepare yourself for an emotional goodbye to the recent warm tropical spells.

Daytime figures look like it will be a struggle to stay above zero, while the nights will see temperatures drop to minus two at least.

The big chill is predicted to arrive on Thursday night, with Met Eireann claming that "The cold and bright weather continues through the weekend with daytime temps of 7 to 9 degrees; the nights will be frosty with temperatures falling to between -2 to +2 degrees.

Met Eireann also added that temperatures for the long October Bank Holiday weekend will be “below average” and that we might get pelted with hail showers throughout.

"Early indications suggest it will be cold and windy over the weekend with a mix of sunny spells and showers, some of the showers will be heavy with the risk of hail and thunder. Daytime maximum temperatures will be in the high single figures and with the risk of frost at night, especially on Sunday night."

This is going to be a shock to the system, to say the least.

The chances of an early Halloween bonfire are looking fairly slim, put away those fireworks lads.
