It’s Friday… you’ve just finished work for a BANK HOLIDAY weekend and BAM, there’s national weather warnings in place and we just cannot deal.
We just couldn’t wait to put plans in place for St Patrick’s Weekend but low and behold we’ve to re-assess because the cold weather this weekend is set to bring snow-showers and snow-accumulation.
This evening most places will remain dry, but scattered showers will develop late into the night.

While Saturday, the big day will be VERY cold and windy during the parade and it’s set to get progressively wintry with temperatures falling between -1 and -4 degrees by nightfall.
Widespread sharp frost is expected while there is a national status yellow weather warning in place from 9am on Friday until Sunday, March 18th at 12am.
It’s to remain just as cold on Sunday with strong winds, and we can expect more of the same in terms of falling temperatures and frost.
And it’s a good thing you kept Monday for chilling and recovering because winds will ease, and the cold snap will be dying off slightly, however, with severe frost still lingering, it’s a day to camp beside the fire with some Netflix.
Have a great bank holiday weekend guys – stay safe!
