Plunging temperatures on Friday night means that Donegal could experience the first snow of the winter.
But there’s a snowball chance in hell that kids will be having snowball fights as a result.
Some amateur weather forecasters have claimed that Donegal will experience some snow before Halloween.
But Met Eireann has poured cold water on the freezing forecast.
An update from Midland Weather Channel suggested that Ireland could get a touch of the white stuff.
“As the very warm and moist air comes into contact with the bitterly cold Arctic air its expected to generate some intense precipitation leading to a flooding risk in the southeast of the country at present, whereas along the northern and northwestern edge of the rainfall its expected to turn increasingly to snow,” said a forecaster with the online site.
However, a spokesperson for Met Éireann said they weren’t expecting any more than “10 minutes of snow on the north-most hills of Northern Ireland.”
“While there is a possibility of snow falling, the chance of us actually getting to see any of it is “nil.”Tags:
