North coast could get lucky! Temp holding firm at around 4degrees here. If only the wind would shift a wee bit more north west then we could all get a chance!!

I read there's a warm sector to this and it won't snow until the early hours. Haven't checked anything bar the automated stuff and most show it 3 4c until the early hours so doesn't look promising until then going off that. Last night was a bust. I knew it was going nowhere when the weather station with altitude beside me wasn't even cold come 3am. I expect plenty of places will be white come morning tho.

So far Antrim town sleety mix temp 2.1c. Not expecting much but ever hopeful. On night duty so drive to Belfast later might be fun.

Must be the same band gathering out to the North West

Just a heads up folks!

We are keeping a close eye on a more organised area of showers just out to the Northwest of the country.

it's heading our direction over the next few hours and some areas could see more prolonged sleet & snow for a time later this afternoon/evening which is likely to lead to some accumulations of several cm's in short periods of time.

We will keep monitoring this and keep you updated.

Had seriously heavy hail and thunder and lightening out this direction around half 11 or so. Left a covering. Some sleety showers since. Interested to see where this more organised band will go!

Maybe it's me being negative, but i'm struggling to see much snow of any significance.

Although, if this is snow then some Northern coastal counties could be in for a good dumping shortly......

And look what's out behind it.

But the direction of travel is due East and not South East so that huge blob looks Scotland bound I think.

It looked that way but it headed slightly further south if you follow the animation

Another decent shower there, not laying though. Temps need to fall back a bit more or we will have nothing. Currently 1.9c.

Follow the Isobars gives you good idea of direction early today it was more westerly and 4pm onwards its north-westerly.

So that makes it a direct hit.
