Brace yourselves people, there's going to be some weather. But this weather will be slightly more noticeable than most other weather you experience.
In what may come as some of the least surprising news we could conceive of, there is set to be some cold weather on the way - during winter of all seasons, who knew?
Met Éireann have issued a status yellow weather warning for 20 counties on their website, comprising all of Connaught, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Longford, Louth, Wicklow, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Kerry, Limerick and Tipperary. The weather warning will come into effect on Thursday and Thursday night. They are anticipating small accumulations of snow on high ground with the possibility of some snow sticking in lower areas.
To put some perspective on how you should react to this weather warning, I'd say you should perhaps be as alarmed as you would be if you noticed that you were 'running relatively low on jam, but you were someone who doesn't really eat jam that regularly - it's usually just for when your parents come to visit, and they won't be visiting next for another three weeks or so, so it might be a good idea to get some more during the next shop, but there's no real rush on it and besides you actually have a full jar of marmalade as well so they could probably make do with that if pushed'. That is approximately the level of panic that this news from Met Éireann should engender in you.
Keep up to date with any changes to this on their website.
