The snow showers keep piling into Dublin. About 1cm at the moment.

We are so lucky. I have waited since the great snowfalls of Dec 2010.

The icing on the cake would be something similar to 8th Jan 1982. Unlikely i know. It snowed fro 36 hours non stop with 18 inches of snow with 6 feet snowdrifts . it was brilliant!!!

Looks like curtains for the persistent snow later this week across Northern parts. 

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Becoming drier through Friday and Saturday with only a few showers in east but snow showers will most probably return on Sunday. Occasionally windy. Feeling very cold.

Think it's safe to say if the GFS is to be believed that Fridays low is a complete bust for anyone north of Dublin. South of Dublin looks to be getting hammered.

Not a flake on the ground here, cars aren't frosted over. Beast from the east, lol, maybe it'll turn up later.

Is it a case that the air is far to dry for frost to form?

Barra on radio Ulster talking about widespread disruptive snow for Thursday night to Saturday night (potentially)

I can only assume higher resolution met models are showing something different to GFS then.

Found it strange that they are still mentioning it as a chance going by the comments on here it looks like a bust?

I’m devastated here in Larne. We had a few flurries last night, well more a bit of light hail, so I thought something might have happened overnight. Like, even Ballymena got hit and we got nothing...

Anyway, here’s hoping we get something later today or tomorrow, even a couple of streamers would be nice. Forecasts seem to give us something around lunch time but the way the week’s gone so far I’m not betting on it...
