Don’t put your winter coats, hat, scarves and sleds away just yet; the dreaded Beast from the East could be making a return in time for Paddy’s Day.
A Status Yellow weather warning is now in place all day Wednesday for Munster and Leinster, with Met Eireann warning that ‘very wet and windy weather is expected to affect mainly Munster and south Leinster during Wednesday.’
The national forecaster says that for now, the weather for the weekend is ‘still rather uncertain with low pressure remaining to the west of Ireland and a high pressure system building over Scandinavia.’
Whether that means we’re about to be snowed in again or not, we’ll have to wait and see.
Yesterday, TV3 weatherman Deric Ó hArtagáin told his Twitter followers that we may not be free from the worst wintery weather just yet.
So …no need for alarm just yet but something is stirring for next weekend. Could #BeastFromTheEast could be making a come back?! Early tracking models for next Sunday 18th. Nothing comfirmed. Will be keeping a close eye!! pic.twitter.com/Dno2TAnEGC

“Nothing confirmed. Will be keeping a close eye!!”
We can look forward to a cold and frosty start tomorrow, Tuesday, with sunny spells during the morning and outbreaks of light rain later in the evening.
