Yep, around Castle Court here, and very little in the way of snow now, yet less than half a mile away a totally different story. Also, Moira seems to be getting a serious beating!

Regarding the warning by Met Eireann, the red warning is for the afternoon, the rest of the country is under Amber and yellow alerts up to that. I was listening to Gerard Fleming (former head forecaster) stating that they had to go full red countrywide as they expect country wide precipitation from the storm and it will be heavy and all snow. I don’t see any issue with the red warning at all! 

Meanwhile in Dublin, the former snow shield has been blown away in the -2 wind and the windchill feels like -14! Snow falling constantly all morning and I now measure 10 inches in the back garden!

Just as I give up hope lol! Fingers Crossed. Have to say, fairly windy out there - glad I went up Cavehill yesterday and not today - that wind chill - phwoar! lol 

Oh also - everyone - on a wee side note - my username is because my childhood dog was a Samoyed called Snowy lol - nothing to do with me loving the snow (though I do) - just a nice coincidence.  I've been meaning to say that for a while now. Anyway - carry on :D

I think the issue is that some of the north west had seen nothing and according to the met office uk isn't expected to see anything. Just confusing and never seen such conflicting forecasts so not sure which to believe!

Northern Ireland is under a yellow warning, ATM, from the UK Met.

The whole of Ireland is under a red warning, how can one Met Office service put Donegal under a red, now, whilst another puts a bordering county to it under a yellow?

Met Eireann are considering downgrading north western counties from red apparently.
