Winter is coming! Dublin just got hit with 2015’s first SNOW shower


Wrap up warm people, because it's set to be a chilly weekend.

How do we know? Well, it's still only Friday afternoon and the country has already been hit with a snow shower.

Monaghan, Derry and even various parts of Dublin were graced with the first flurry of the season today – with people in Sandyford, Rathmines, Clontarf, Donaghbate and more all reporting seeing snowflakes falling.

We know, right? It's waaaay too early for this madness, and apparently it's not even over:

According to Met Éireann, temperatures will drop to between 0 and 3 degrees Celsius tonight, with ground frost expected and similar conditions over the weekend.

And in true Irish style, there'll be wind and rain to boot, so prepare to face every element possible over the coming days.

Earlier this week, the country bore the brunt of Storm Barney, with almost 50,000 people left without power as winds reached speeds of 129km/h.

Can we go back to summer now please?
