With reports and counter reports on whether or not it will snow on Christmas Day surfacing on recent days, long-range forecasters Exacta Weather have now risen to the occasion and said that they believe the Irish should not discard the idea of a White Christmas just yet.
They have said that Ireland will experience a series of “significant or severe wintry blasts” during December, and that one of these “blasts” may coincide with December 25, bringing the white stuff down from the heavens.
They said that northern and eastern parts of the country would be more likely to see snow during these periods.
For now, however, the unseasonal mild spell is set to continue for another two weeks at least, before winter weather grips the country towards the middle of the month.
There will be long sunny spells over the next few days, and possibly into next week so make the most of it.
