Snow storm possible for Ireland as Met Eireann forecast strange weather event before another change




Ireland is braced for a frigid Arctic blast that will push recent mild temperatures below freezing.

Met Eireann has warned that there will be a sudden change in the weather from Sunday evening as the current windy conditions give way to sleet, snow and hail.

A nationwide “winter weather” advisory has been issued, which reads, “Turning cold across the country between Sunday evening and Thursday morning as an Arctic airflow becomes established, bringing sharp to severe frosts and icy stretches on roads and footpaths. Some showers of hail, sleet and snow are expected,” reports The Mirror.

The notice also warns that there is “the potential for freezing fog”.

Freeze fog is considered a rare weather event because certain circumstances are required for fog to form. The fog consists of “supercooled” water droplets, meaning that the moisture remains liquid despite sub-zero temperatures.
