❄️PROLONGED ARCTIC SPELL OF WEATHER AHEAD ⚠️COLDEST SPELL SINCE DECEMBER 2010 👍Please Share The latest weather models indicate a much more prolonged cold spell than originally anticipated, with our weather becoming locked into a pattern which will ensure bitterly cold conditions remain present from the middle of next week right the way throughout the first week of the new year.

During this particular cold spell it’s likely that many parts of the country will some snow, with the heaviest falls likely in Ulster, Connacht, the north Midlands and east Leinster. Higher ground will at all times see the heaviest of the snowfalls, where some drifting is likely to occur. Nighttime and daytime values will be well below average, with frost persisting in shaded areas throughout.

There’s a possibility of some lakes and ponds freezing due to the prolonged nature of the cold spell, which is likely to be the most prolonged spell of wintry weather since December of 2010. Further updates to follow, but if your a lover of wintry weather then this is a fantastic forecast.
