Winter, A Guest For The Weekend

Winter arrives this weekend in Ireland. We’ve been relatively lucky so far with some beautifully mild, calm and bright autumn days. Temperatures have been above average, and we had a superbly mild October which allowed us here at LiveIreland to get out and about and take some autumn photos for you.

Island weather is especially changeable from October to April and ‘four seasons – one day’ becomes our motto those months.

So after the past week or so successively being battered and buffeted by storm Abigail, the remnants of ex-hurricane Kate, and then Barney, the Jet stream finally takes a little dip and the cold polar low influences from Friday morning.

It’s no exaggeration when we say talking about the weather is the Irish national pastime next to telling stories.
Here at LiveIreland, while discussing the oncoming cold for this weekend, the conversation and stories turned to recent winters passed.

This weekend coming, a potential light dusting of snow in some higher areas of Ireland reminded us of some of the recent winters from the last few years and we thought we’d share some of our pictures with you.

The good news is, just for the moment, winter is only a weekend visitor and departs on Sunday, with milder weather returning for the short term.
