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.

His latest post comes after he, amongst others, shared a warning that the Beast from the East could make a big return for St Patrick's Day weekend.
