A severe blizzard hit Northern Ireland on Saturday, February 13, 2021, causing whiteout conditions in most areas. The harsh weather conditions came after the UK experienced its deepest "extreme freeze" in a decade, which brought record cold temperatures.

Strong winds and snow battered Northern Ireland on Saturday, resulting in whiteout conditions on roads and streets.

"[It was] some of the most dramatic scenes I have witnessed here," a local said after she filmed the powerful snowstorm blowing away bushes and tree branches.

The severe weather came after the UK saw its deepest "extreme freeze" for a decade.

On February 11, the country recorded its coldest night in more than 25 years as temperatures pummeled to nearly -23 °C (-9.4 °F) in northern Scotland.

While temperatures are set to get warmer from Monday, February 15, Met Eireann forecasts more snow to come this week.

On Wednesday, February 17, a low-pressure system is set to move up from the south, bringing widespread rain with a risk of flooding. Some sleet and snow on higher ground.
