The “Beast” is back

The county woke up this morning to another fall of snow.

As predicted the “Beast from the East” has returned.

Wicklow Weather advise Extreme care on road networks today.

Some heavy embedded bands of snow moving into Leinster, east Ulster and east Munster lowering visibility in blizzard like conditions.
A bitterly cold day ahead with feel like temps of -4c to -8c in a strong easterly gusting to 90kmh.
