    Nice wee surprise covering this morning. Wasn't expecting that at all as I have been too busy to keep a close eye on the models these past few days.

    Happy Christmas to all by the way!

    Victims of the 2017 Snow Blizzard Speak Out Some harrowing tales are emerging across the country this morning as the victims of the 2017 snow storm share their stories.  The whole of Norther

    Just saw total accumulation maps (for next 48hrs) from latest euro4 model. Think I peed myself a little!

    Guys - good luck with the snow potential over the next few days  cameras at the ready!

    Cold still morning. Interesting overnight, lamp post watching time again.

    Lamppost watching tonight? Are we in line for more potential? Totally out of the loop re models these past few days!

    I'm not expecting anything substantial here but from around nine onwards looks well, just any precipitation very sparse. Models have been all over the place, they all seem to be grieving in the model thread .

    Bitterly cold today ice remained on paths all day with a few snow showers throughout the day currently getting which looks to be the last of the snow showers for tonight slight dusting, eyes down for potential snow Friday morning you never know.

    This winter has been much better than the previous few and we are only through official the 1st week of winter.:)

    Cheers for the update. I'm doing my local community's 5 miles race (Lough5) at midday on 31st. Could be some issues if that comes to pass!

    Cracking hard frost this morning with a possible ice day on the cards.

    Not hopeful for snow tomorrow morning though. Looks like rain below 200 meters.

    Nice festive cold spell currently, haven’t been on here in a while with all the Christmas parties to keep me occupied. MetO have just issued warning for snow and ice so thought I would have a look and see what’s happening.

    new date for diary......8th jan for country wide snow event.....long way off but something to cheer us up getting back to first full week of work.

    Don’t know what to make of the warning for overnight......lamppost’s at the ready

    Yeah a few in the model thread have mentioned the dates around the 6th-8th of January as the next point of interest. Lovely hard frost here today and blue skies for a change!!

    You are right on the boundary height wise, I suspect you will see a snowy sleety mix. I can't see it sticking but it's so marginal that it's very hard to predict. Who knows, you might wake up to a blizzard tomorrow morning, but i wouldn't count on it.

    Chief Forecaster's assessment

    A band of snow and rain is expected to move northeastwards over Northern Ireland later on Thursday night and during Friday morning. Snow is more likely over the north and west of Northern Ireland where it will fall to low levels for a time before tending to turn to rain towards dawn. Elsewhere any snow will be temporary and the greater risk is for rain to fall onto frozen surfaces leading to ice for an hour or two after the rain begins.

    BBC graphics look good but i really can't see much away from high ground but there could be a few surprises. Today was a cracking ice day!! Took this shot earlier with the drone over looking Lough Swilly in Donegal.

    I'm sitting at -1.9°C with a dew point of -3.8°C, it'll definitely start as snow, all depends on how long conditions remain favourable for duration.

    Some of the guys over on the NW ENGLAND forum posting interesting images of lows sliding in over next 48hrs. Looks to be some great potential on those for large parts of Ireland!

    I'm sitting at -3.0°C with a dew point of -4.0°C certainly cold enough now but will it be when front pushed in ice could be the main issue out of this but i would love a few inches of snow.
