TWO Weather Warnings Issued As Snow Set To Hit Whole Of Ireland Again

Could this long weekend turn into a long week?

The people at Met Éireann were up bright and early on Sunday morning and issued not one but bloody two weather warnings about snow and ice in Ireland at 5am.

The first, is a Status Orange snow-ice warning for Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath and Waterford

They say that: "Scattered heavy snow showers will continue during this morning and will lead to accumulations in places and some drifting."

This particular warning is just in place until 12pm on Sunday but the second warning takes us into Monday.

They also issued a snow-ice Warning for the whole of Ireland stating that it will be "staying cold for today and tonight (Sunday) with wind chill and icy patches. There will be further snow showers during today but some areas will remain dry, especially across the west and northwest.

That warning is valid from 5am on Sunday until 9am on Monday morning. We have a feeling though that it won't be the last warning we see before Paddy's weekend is out.
