One at the top is latest. North third of the county has a lot less snow. Still great below that but always was.

Steady showers here all evening. Fairly light, but the lying snow is building up a bit and some back roads are in bad shape.

The showers are building as they cross over the north coast heading across Lough Foyle and Inishowen, giving us a nice dusting here on the north west coast. Hope to see a bit of lying white stuff in the morning.

They've not updated since 12pm though and will update again at 12am.

These streamers are so dependent on wind direction it's unreal.

10 miles South of me is gettin mullered.

Sure didn't my heating just go and pack in,boiler isn't firing up. Never happens in the middle of summer, lol. Have the open fire lit so all good and hopefully will get someone out in next day or two to sort it. Enjoy any snow folks, still nothing here.

Hopefully better for us in the morn MS as wind supposed to be direct easterly. As for for fri  low it will be nowcasting I think. It will either be great or a bust but I’m not hopeful at all. As for the streamer it sure is a bummer. Just missing me by a couple of miles. 😂😂

Mournes will be getting a serious pasting ms, streamers seem to have followed that line nearly all day. 

Can’t believe we have had nothing so far, like literally nothing at all, nout, zilch, nada, zero, diddly squat, stained glass window all......I could go on

Well we're 80% chance of heavy snow showers between 1am and 7am so here's hoping.

Took the dog for a walk around 7PM, good snow showers then, it seems to snow every half an hour here tonight, another shower now. Plus the wind is causing the snow to blow around and drift, i've never felt snow so soft. Very quiet here, haunting to be out.

Heard Eileen Cusack mention earlier today that there was one particular model they were waiting for output from tonight and that forecasts would be updated based on that. Sorry, I can't remember what model she mentioned.

 

Edit: It wasn't any of the models I've seen mentioned on a regular basis this site.

We know it’s going to turn to snow the issue is if it will reach Northern Ireland though.

Well if it going to hit Donegal it will hit NI. Their threshold for red warning is only 8cm

Warning just covers Donegal, cavan and Monaghan, they don't issue warning for Northern Ireland but they give a weather forecast for NI. I don't understand the red tbh for Ulster counties but maybe they see something we don't.
