Met Eireann issue ANOTHER status yellow warning

Met Eireann St Patrick's Day is going to be freezing

Snow is being predicted for St Patrick's Day by Met Éireann who are promising a very cold weekend ahead.

There will be three St Patrick's Day parades taking place locally at the weekend.

Met Eireann stated: "It will be mild at first, but early indications suggest that it will become very cold over St Patrick's weekend".

Rain in northern areas will slowly clear during Thursday morning but elsewhere will be a brighter and drier day with showery rain affecting mainly the south and west.

The Status Yellow Rainfall Warning applies to Laois, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford.


The whole country is set to experience "very cold" weather, with the north and east getting the worst of it - with temperatures of 1 to 2 degrees max.

However, the snow showers are not expected to be anything like the blizzard-like conditions of Storm Emma and are unlikely to interfere with any parades.

The chill is set to continue into Sunday with more snow showers, mainly over Leinster and the eastern half of Munster with more frost overnight. It will be cold, frosty and icy on Monday night. Breezy, with moderate to fresh easterly winds.
