It's going to be a bitterly cold week, by the looks of things. Met Éireann have just issued a status yellow weather warning for Ireland, with snow and ice predicted.

They updated their website this morning, writing: "Very cold this week with showers of hail, sleet and snow, frequent across the southwest, west and north, where some significant accumulations are possible this evening and overnight."

"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.



Snow has been falling in various parts of the country as temperatures dropped this week.

Dublin is currently getting a dose of cold weather as snow is falling on the capitol today.

As snow is such a rarity in Ireland, Twitter is already blowing up with excitement. 

According to Met Eireann, this weekend is set to be freezing cold, and people are warned to expect "cold with some clear spells and dry apart from isolated wintry showers."

“Lowest air temperatures of zero to -3 to degrees with a sharp to severe frost and some icy patches.”

We're secretly hoping the snow will stick around for a day or two, but drivers should take caution in icy conditions.




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."




Most of the country woke up to chilly conditions this morning – and it's just gotten a whole load more wintry out there too.

In fact, it's currently SNOWING in Co Donegal. 

Fermanagh and parts of Sligo are also reportedly experiencing snow showers.

However, the worst hit areas are certainly in south Donegal, with hail furthermore impacting on driving conditions. 

The likes of Rossnowlagh and Ballintra seemingly have the heaviest snow coverage on the ground.

Met Éireann reports: "Heavy blustery showers (some with hail and thunder) will continue for the rest of the day, with the showers tending to be more frequent over the western half of the country

"A cold day with highest temperatures of 7C to 9C in strong and gusty westerly winds."

Meanwhile, there will be "heavy rain" tomorrow "for much of the day".
