St. Patrick’s weekend weather: Met Éireann issues two new warnings

The national forecaster has predicted cold temperatures and snow showers for the St Patrick’s Day weekend, just two weeks after we were lashed on by the ‘Beast from the East’. This new, extremely cold front won’t be as severe as Storm Emma but it will continue to feel cold and pretty miserable.

On their website, Met Éireann has said that Saturday, St. Patricks Day, will be “cold and breezy with a significant wind chill due to fresh and gusty easterly winds. Top afternoon temperatures of 3 or 4 degrees in many areas, and 6 to 8 degrees along the Atlantic coast. Most places dry, but a few showers are likely, with the odd wintry flurry. On Saturday night it will be cold and frosty overnight, with clear spells and some sleet and snow showers. The wintry showers will mainly affect eastern parts of Leinster, with just the odd furry elsewhere. But amounts should be small. Lowest temperatures zero to -3 degrees Celsius, with some icy surfaces.”
