There is some weather on the way. This weather will be slightly unusual for the typical weather that we normally get in Ireland, as such its arrival - like that of an 18th century French viscount - warrants an article being written about it. Snow, snow and ice are on the horizon.
As such, Met Éireann have issued a national status yellow snow-ice warning for Ireland. The warning has been issued for tonight and is in place from 21:00 tonight, Monday 21 January, until 19:00 tomorrow, Tuesday 22 January.
They have predicted that we should expect icy and slippery conditions and for an accumulation of ice and snow on untreated surfaces.
According to their website;
Scattered sleet and snow showers most frequent across Ulster and Connacht will occur but some showers penetrating into central and eastern areas at times with the odd flurry further south. Accumulations generally 1-2cm expected. Wintry showers becoming confined to northern areas by late evening.

So brace yourselves, as there is set to be very mildly unusual weather heading our way. Stock up on bread, storm your local discount German supermarket etc.
