Dreaming of a white Christmas this year? Well, you might be in luck (or not depending on how you look at it) with the latest forecast from Met Eireann.
On Monday this week it was it was reported that it would get cold today, and boy has Met Eireann delivered. Thursday will be “bitterly cold” with “fresh, gusty north to northwest breezes” with temperatures between just 3 and 6 degrees Celsius.
This morning people around the country (especially in parts of the north like Monaghan and Antrim and up in the Wicklow mountains) showed images of blizzards raging much like we saw in Game of Thrones this past spring. (Winter has come).

For today and tomorrow, the forecast says to expect: “Wintry showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow, with some accumulations of snow in places. These showers will be most frequent over Ulster and north Leinster. Fresh to strong northwesterly winds this morning will ease off later in the day and afternoon temperatures of 2 to 5 degrees Celsius.”
Time to dust off those toboggans we think!
