TV3 weatherman predicts six inches of snow could hit on St Patrick's Day
He warned that it will be "bitterly cold".
TV3's Deric Ó hArtagáin has predicted that snow will be hitting Ireland once again this week - just in time for St Patrick's Day.
The weatherman also shared a graphic on Twitter, showing that up to six inches of snow may fall in some areas of the country by Sunday morning.
The photo, originally from Weather.US, shows that the Leinster region would primarily be affected by the snowfall.
So looks like snow will be back for #StPatricksDay Mainly for East & SE once again. Kicking off Sat eve into Sunday; not as bad as last time & it'll be bitterly cold #BeastFromTheEast2 @TV3Ireland @3NewsIreland @IrelandAMTV3 pic.twitter.com/43uvCrSd7D
