Met Éireann updates warning with "exceptionally cold" weather on the way

It's going to be a cold week in Shropshire

"They'll be a few flurries tomorrow afternoon, Monday, but they won't amount to very much", said forecaster Pat Clarke.

However, it is later in the week when temperatures are expected to dip amid "blizzard conditions" with wind chill factored in temperatures could dip to -10C.

Speaking on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, Seán Hogan warned that "now is the time" to clear the driveways and pathways near your home or business before conditions worsen, with more snow and ice set to fall in the coming days.

On Monday, the National Emergency Coordination Group met in Dublin.

Met Éireann forecaster Joanna Donnelly told the Irish Times that Irish people should not get complacent about the unusually warm weather the country is now experiencing.

Businesses and schools are bracing themselves for disruption with people asked to look out for elderly relatives and neighbors.

The three candidates were shortlisted in December from a total of 2,042 design submissions from the public. The list was narrowed down to three by experts and voted for by school students across the nation.

Met Eireann warned that the full impact of the Arctic winds will be felt from Thursday, when daytime temperatures will remain at or below freezing for some parts of Ireland, particularly across north Leinster, Ulster and north Connacht. "A lot of precipitation is associated with it and as it hits the cold air of Ireland and Britain there is a high risk of some very heavy snow", she said.

Meanwhile, members of the public are being urged to visit the 'Winter Ready' website to help prepare for the expected severe weather.

"During Tuesday we'll get some snow showers developing along the east coast, and then as we go into Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the snow will become more widespread across the country".

Met Éireann have issued a status yellow weather advisory, which may be updated to at least a status orange warning, ahead of "exceptionally cold weather" that is to occur this week.

"A spell of persistent and heavy snow is expected to extend from the south late Thursday and Thursday night, with significant and disruptive accumulations".
