There will almost certainly be snow lying on the ground in some locations across the country by Saturday night, according to Cathal Nolan of Midland Weather Channel.
He outlined that the reason for this certainty arises from the development of a “very” cold air mass behind Friday's storm depression, with a risk of snow developing along the northern edge of Friday's low-pressure system.
“On Saturday; however, a very unstable westerly airflow will push frequent wintry showers from west to east across the country, and with temperatures struggling to reach higher than 3-5 degrees Celsius.” he explained in a post on social media.
“In many areas, some of these showers will fall as snow, especially overnight with some accumulations of snow likely.
He explained that in Iceland, a record-breaking winter blizzard has dumped over 150 cm of snow in some areas and delivered winds in excess of 250 km/h.
