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

Barra gave out a weather forecast on the tellie and it showed rain (mostly rain) and sleet for the north and west as the winds change direction.

Ulster

Today 

Bitterly cold today with widespread wintry showers, some heavy and prolonged with the risk of thunder. Snow is likely to accumulate in many areas with significant accumulations of snow expected over the hills this evening. Highest temperatures of just 1 to 3 degrees in a strong and gusty westerly wind which will veer northwesterly this evening and reach gale force at times along the coast.

Tonight

Cold and windy tonight with widespread wintry showers with further accumulations of snow expected in many areas. There is the continued risk of thunder and lightning. The showers will become increasingly confined to windward coasts later in the night. Icy overnight with lowest temperatures ranging from minus 2 to plus 2 degrees. Strong and gusty north or northwesterly winds will reach gale force at times along the coast.

Did he say mostly rain, or was that for coastal areas only?

No, he didn't say rain however the video forecast itself shown the blue turning to white quite far into land. I'm sure the forecast is a little pessimistic

Forecast was a load of crap. Totally contradicts all other forecasts.

Snowing proper in Donegal, heavy big flakes and windy

...and here is a pic of that large shower structure moving directly towards Omagh. Should hit here in 20 mins or so. Looks to be nice beefy showers lining up behind it too looking at the radar.

that big shower is just starting here sleety mix, on the radar when then showers pass high ground they seem to go back to sleet :(

You appear to be right on the northern flank of it so maybe PPN not as intense, you look like you'll do better out of the showers following directly behind.
