Dublin is braced for its worst spell of weather in over 40 years as Storm Emma roars up from the south.
Emma is set to meet with the ‘Beast from the East’ leading to heavy snow that many younger people will never have experienced.
The forecast is predicting high winds and blizzard like conditions from this evening and people have been warned not to go outside after 4pm.
Met Eireann predicts a ‘metre of snow’ in south Dublin as Storm Emma blizzard spreads across the capital
Today was the coldest March day in Ireland on record
Met Eireann have said up to a ‘metre of snow’ is expected in south Dublin this evening and have extended their status red warning as conditions have become more severe.
According to their latest update blizzard conditions will be on the way tonight and during Friday in Leinster and Munster and southern and eastern coastal counties will receive exceptionally high accumulations.
When you start to measure snow in meters / day, you’ve got some serious snow fall.
It looks to me like the 60 year weather cycle is returning to the cold of the past. Hope y’all enjoyed the last 40 years of warmth. It was nice while it lasted…
