Met Éireann has issued both a Status Orange and Status Yellow weather warning effective from today, due to expected freezing temperatures and snowfall.
Bearing down on Ireland, Storm Emma or the “Beast From The East” has sparked numerous precautions and advice from national media sources along with Met Éireann, since Monday. Temperatures will from 4 to -1 degrees, and added windchill will further affect this.
But in Ireland, a Siberian cold front approaching the country in March won’t get away without some level of mockery - and even anticipation. Facts and practical advice aside, there’s always something to point out and laugh at when it comes to the Irish weather.
We must be the only country in the world that is excited about a potential severe downfall of snow. The kids mad to build snowmen and the adults buzzing for a couple of days off work ? #BeastFromTheEast
