Meteorologists Predict Ireland Will Get A White Christmas This Year

Don't let that lovely mild Autumn we've had fool you, Winter is set to be a cold one.

We've been battered by storms and weather warnings in recent weeks, so we feel the least we deserve is a white Christmas.

And according to meteorologist with Exacta weather, James Madden, we could see a repeat of 2010's snowy festive season.

He predicts: “There are likely to be a number of quite potent wintry blasts in December that potentially bring the coldest and snowiest spell in some years for Ireland, particularly for two periods around the mid-month point and into the final third of the month and up to the New Year.”

“Although we need to allow for some deviations in exact timing, there is every chance that these conditions will arrive prior to Christmas.

“Many parts to the north and east of the country are also likely to see lying snow on the ground for several days at the very least within this period and these conditions will also spread to many other parts of the country, including southern and western areas, as winter takes a firm stronghold.”

There's bound to be heaps of conflicting reports in the coming weeks, but for now, we choose to believe this.
