In the west of Ireland, snow is not common. And we’ve had quite a bit already this winter. This afternoon, we had a dusting of unusually, soft powdery snow.
Usually, it is damp snow perfect for making snowmen. We’re told we will get more snow tomorrow night as Storm Emma makes her way from the Bay of Biscay and hits some cold Siberian air. Blizzard like conditions are expected in the east and south, where snowfall has already been heavier. The last time we had a blizzard was 1982, so it is really not something we are used to! Keep safe everyone.
