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!

Haha wouldn't you know, that intense shower completely disintegrated as soon as it hit the border!!

The ones behind it look a little more promising to me so shall see what they bring. Sky darkening here again now.

Wouldn't you know just as shower activity increses it all falls as sleet!! What sort of uppers do we need for snow these days?!

Short lived snow showers throughout the day then once its half organised it turns to sleet ha. Its 1c colder now than it was when it was snowing.

There is no more snow left, not even dusting. Not much on the cars too, Officially disappointed now. I thought we'd get something from this it looked all so promising, the organized band of showers turning as sleet instead of snow only confirms that for me atleast it's all over.

Yeah same for me. For my location anyway, too wet and still rainy, this was the organised band of "snow" I was waiting for ha. Elevation above 100m around me all white. Lets hope the sleet here turns to snow for others. Huge letdown, wasn't expecting much other than a dusting of 1cm or 2cm tbf

I myself don't understand why showers would be of sleet or rain. The forecast uppers were cold enough and D/P's forecast as 0c or below even at the coast. 

Its bone dry here still with any showers die-ing out as they make further progress towards Belfast and east coast. 

A question for someone:- why does a W, NW or N airstream have little difficulty at other times of the year getting rain showers to the east coast but come winter snow showers die out as they progress inland. Any reason?

Colder air holds less moisture I suppose.

Radar looks poorer as well at the moment.
