METEOROLOGISTS predict bouts of cold air and snow this winter and bookmaker William Hill has revealed its odds for snow at 10 major airports across Ireland and the UK. In Ireland, Belfast and Dublin are featured by the bookie with odds of 9/2 for Belfast for snowfall on Christmas morning and 6/1 for Dublin to wake to a blanket of snow outside the window.

According to AccuWeather, Ireland will see some really cold weather this winter. However, they expect any snow to fall in the new year.

“Snow is not necessarily going to come from any individual big storm, but there will be frequent batches of light to moderate snow that can produce a bit of accumulation,” revealed senior meteorologist Tyler Roys.

The winter is also set to be drier for the first half but later this winter, around January or February as meteorological winter begins on December 1, things will begin to change. Ireland has not had snowfall on Christmas Day since 2010.
