Lads, forget the BBC/Met office etc, the only model to pay attention to is the mighty GEM...it's showing heavy snow for over 24hrs for all of Ireland! As was mentioned a day or two ago...UPPAGEM!

The radar is so deceptive, judging by it you would think everwhere was doing well. It’s just Ronans dandruff landing here though!

The Ulster forecast was updated at 1300hrs. National forecast just updated there now and it’s not as bad for Ulster at all.

National Forecast


01 March 2018 14:48

Today

Staying bitterly cold and very windy with heavy snow showers and sub zero temperatures in most places with strong easterly winds adding a significant wind chill. 
Blizzard conditions with heavier and more continuous snow will move into southern areas this evening.

Tonight

Blizzards will extend through Munster and Leinster tonight with heavy snow accumulating widely and extremely hazardous conditions. Scattered thunderstorm also. Snowfall will be more showery over Ulster and Connacht, but there will still be heavy falls here also. Icy with temperatures as low as minus 4 degrees Celsius and strong to gale force northeast winds.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow Friday will stay bitterly cold and windy with further snow accumulating, but drier periods at times in northern and northwestern counties. Snow may turn to rain for a time near southern coasts as the day goes on. Strong northeast winds with severe gusts. Highest temperatures -1 to +3 degrees. 
Risk of some coastal flooding along some southern and eastern coasts through today and tomorrow

 

Still Heavy Snowfall in Northern Areas although Showery - No downgrade in that
