Knock-On Flight Delays At Dublin Airport Due To Storm Ewan And Possible Snow

Yes, you read right. It seems that 2017 is the year of weird weather as snow now could be on the way to patches of Dublin. 

And no, we're not lying. According to Met Éireann:

Frost and icy patches clearing this morning to a cold day Today with heavy showers of rain, hail and sleet and a risk of thunder. Some snow is also possible, especially on high ground. Sunny spells also, the best of these in the east and northeast. Highest temperatures of just 4 to 7 degrees with mostly moderate southwest winds, but strong and gusty in the southwest.

Tonight, showers will continue, but will become confined to western areas later in the night. A band of rain and sleet will move down from the northwest over Connacht and Ulster towards dawn. It will be cold with frost developing in places. Lowest temperatures of -2 to +2 degrees. 

This follows Storm Ewan's battering of the southwest and west of Ireland, making for most of Ireland's inbound and outbound flights to be either delayed or cancelled.

The airline also responded to another Twitter user mentioning that ''knock-on effects'' will attribute to even more delayed flights. 

Passengers are being asked to check flights before departing.
