Hate to admit but the chances of seeing proper lying snow rest of winter is at about 0.1%!! Horrific winter for snow and cold! I think it's done and dusted. No positives anywhere to grasp.

Well the UKmet only mentions hill snow for Northern Ireland so rain for low level areas and although I live on a hill, will I be high enough?, unlikey. Pomeroy and Coleraine Mountain will get a blizzard no doubt.

 

Aside from that weather warnings out for rain and wind for the weekend.

 

In terms of any prolonged cold, we continue to look up to the Stratosphere and hope and pray.

I'd be more optimistic for tomorrow night than that. I reckon snow will fall to low levels. Sure it's only the overnight period but it's something at least. I'll take a closer look later and post a few charts.

Both the Euro4 and GFS suggest wintry showers tomorrow night into Saturday for most of Ireland, especially on higher ground in the North and East where it will be coldest. Dew points shouldn't be a problem, and temperatures are expected to dip to freezing in most parts:

Expect accumulations on higher ground, but snow itself should reach most low-lying areas, mainly after midnight:

This will be a very marginal event, btw, so don't be too disappointed if it falls as rain. I can't see many areas near coasts getting much in the way of snow, particularly here in the south, and in the west. :(

The Euro4 prediction for snow tonight. The hills will almost certainly have a covering by morning id say. Maybe one or two lucky spots at lower levels?

Yes I'm 90% certain met office wii have parts of Northern Ireland in a snow warning when they do their updates today! May be brief but I'm certain somebody will see snow. Also expect met eirann to do the same.

Hi Neiller, the fact that any snow will be brief, and laying snow confined to high ground indicates a weather warning will not be necessary, that is, it's not going to cause any disruption.

 

The Wind and Rain warning is sufficient.

next 12 days local forecast has a max of 6 and min of -3'C but wind chill leaves a feels-like max of 1'C and min of -10'C !. Meanwhile wind is mostly southerly . An unusual combination >  

...and 6 hours of snow tonight ???

Yeah I don't really care now if it snows or not. Not the most important thing in my life. Prob not happen anyway but at least there's a chance. Could be last chance to see a snowflake this awful winter! Not like you to be so negative pomeroysnow when a warning is out! U must have had enough!
