I have never seen so much snow in my life like today,I was trying to reach my friend who lives in  Manor Kilbride on Sally gap road(Wicklow Mountains)  to give him a lift to the shops as he spent last

Lovely record breaking morning from West Wicklow, we have got an inch or two on the ground

But but but... Who'd collect for the many charities, or sing in the gospel choir on Sunday mornings? What happened out there was premeditated looting. It's disgraceful. Shocking and abusing the f

    This week shows when the Jet is south of us in winter we can do quite well without blocking to the North . A little bit of altitude helps a lot. 

     

    Met Éireann FC says a band of rain pushing north tonight will turn to snow on its northern edge. Southern parts of Ulster at risk. Didn't see any mention of it on the BBC

    Bara just did in his shocking update for the rest of the day but it hardly touches newry so nout will come of that. And I don’t take any of these newsline forecasts as gospel as they are generally way out ref snow. O to be a weatherman. In any other job you would be sacked for this kind of performance. :D

    The HIRLAM 0.1 goes for snow tomorrow morning as front pushes off Atlantic and then dies sinking south East.   It also has a snow event for Sunday as the Atlantic pushes in for a few hours i never trust that model its total jaffa cakes.

    Bara isn't a Meteorologist like Angie and Cecilia. He never studied it, just learned how to read the charts at BBC weather centre.

    He's a student and was up until about 6 yesterday morning, he's probably just getting out of his kip now.

    For those who see snow from today through to Sunday, good luck, as Neiller says, it will be a good couple of weeks at least before we get another chance, and I reckon the North West will be favoured again as no chance of an Easterly.

    Easterly’s are a rarity now, so I agree look nw for any future snow but really god knows what will happen as it’s the weather.

    That’s class. Hardly a skiff here now. I got my 2nd shower there! :yahoo:of rain!! And I’m 140m asl . This isn’t just going to happen for me today which is why I’m not putting any faith for Sunday morn.

    Bit silly for the East is right.

    Some serious shower activity moving into far NW, looks like it might just miss me.

    edit: showers look to be merging as they're moving inland

    Shower activity... of rain! These warnings are ridiculous as Neiller said, when will we start giving out Reds for no reason? Already seems to be happening with the ambers

    To add insult to injury the 12z GFS wants to give us a bit of heavy snow tomorrow morning from the slider now!

    I tell you what, if things had fallen just a little better for us we could have had a Sperrin amount of snow.

    I know. It will probably be like the thing it will come out of the blue. But we will see. What about Sunday’s?

    Can't see it. It would be very brief and turn quickly to rain.

    I’m now hoping for pure cold from 5 onwards so my hockey match is cancelled. Game was cancelled two weeks ago cos pitch was ‘frozen over’ but it was 5degrees and just pure rain and not as cold as today. 

    Apparently pitch checked earlier today and it was fine - checking again at 5. Fingers crossed it’s too cold lol

    Unusual winter this. We had lying snow for a few days in December and again Tuesday into Wed his week.  All from pm air so as good as could be expected for my location here in Kilkenny which is better if winds from the east. Glad some of you got some decent snow this week even in Dublin I see. After this weekend it looks like back to the drawing board however as stated before this reminds me of the old style eighties winters when we would get a few teasers before the main event. Hopefully Feb will deliver the goods for all

    • Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
