    Disaster has struck here, dew points must have increased with that streamer coming in and our snow has turned to rain!!

    Like the sound of that Steve! Funnily enough we were discussing that the met office didn't appear to be too interested in this event. They must have viewed it is very close to marginal. Thankfully we appear to have fallen on the right side.

    Getting absolutely clobbered here again and looks like even more widespread intense showers moving into the North. Great stuff.

    Looking good for us again, radar is looking great off the coast of Donegal. After getting a great snow fix last week I haven't been keeping a close eye on models so this has crept up on me. We've already the guts of an inch on the ground. I'm located just west of the centre of County Tyrone at approx 180m asl (under the black dot!)

    ...and we're white again!

    Sounds good, it's very wet now though. I'm in Lisburn now at work but it was snowing proper when I left home at 11am, nice white flakes going through Dungannon too.

    The back edge of the last shower that passed through loughmacrory was snow. I think higher ground might get some half decent action.

    BBC forecast looks very promising for tomorrow, definitely surprised there's no warning out from met office. @Rocheydub the infamous Dublin snow shield may be breached tomorrow! http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast-video/21416743

    I'm in Lisburn today so can't comment on higher ground in Tyrone. Anybody see the BBC forecast earlier? Looks prettt good for snow from tomorrow mid afternoon. http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast-video/21416743

    @booferking what's your thoughts on Wednesday evening? Haven't had a chance to check the models these past few days.

    BIg streamer moving through central Ulster at the minute. Showing as sleet on radar, anyone under it? I'm working in Lisburn here, all clear with blue skies.

    Showers appear to be losing intensity as they're moving down the coast of Scotland and fading quite quickly when they hit Ireland. However, BBC forecast with Jeff Maskell showed them pushing well south through Ulster later in the night.

    Was just going to post that too James. Out of interest what radar app is that you're using?

    Some excitement over on the English threads, some snow starved folks getting serious action today. I wasn't aware of the potential but looks like we could see more snow this evening and tonight. The following warnings has been issued. Wintry showers will become more frequent over northern Scotland on Sunday afternoon, with some extending to Northern Ireland during Sunday evening and night. A further 2-5 cm of snow is likely over parts of northern mainland Scotland with 5-10 cm possible over some high ground. Elsewhere, ice is likely to be the main hazard, though there could be snowfalls of 2-5 cm on some high ground. Some roads, pavements and cycle paths will be slippery, and some longer journey times by road and bus services are likely, right through the Monday morning rush hour. A look at the radar and you can see the shower band starting to move south over western Scotland. Looks like it's got our name on it in the north and west of Ireland.

    Anyway, more 12z updates. Euro4 and 48hr fax charts looking better for us in the north on Sunday.
