St Patrick’s Day forecast includes sub zero temperatures and a weather warning

St Patrick’s Day forecast includes sub zero temperatures and a weather warning

If you’re heading out for Paddy’s Day festivities, be sure to wear your winter woollies and waterproof coatMet Eireann has issued a status yellow warning for Leinster, Cavan and Monaghan, with wintry showers promised throughout Saturday and Sunday.

Temperatures will range from 1 to 3 degrees in the eastern half of the country, while they’ll reach 4 to 6 degrees in the west. Forecasters predict blustery, easterly winds will add a significant wind chill (a perfect excuse to stay inside and do some online shopping, if you ask us).

It will only get worse as St Patrick’s Day goes on, with nighttime temperatures falling below zero – as far as -4 degrees in some areas. Cold, gusty winds will be particularly bad in the north and east of the country, while widespread frost will develop overnight. With that in mind, be careful if you’re out partying till the wee hours of the morning.

Snow showers are expected to fall throughout the weekend (even into Monday), but they won’t be near as bad as they were during Storm Emma. It’s been dubbed ‘the son of the beast’, which sounds far less threatening.
