I'm screwed. I'm in Templemore for the night and much of tomorrow so I'm not looking forward to seeing the snow.
It's gonna miss us
You're going to be at ground zero Reggie.
A polar low changed track on the forecast today. It was going to go down the west coast now it's going straight down through the country.
There will also be strong winds and a band of snow with this.
Someone I have till 8pm to finish up tomorrow
Don't take the times on that as gospel.
But forecasters are getting hyper about snow.
This a screen grab from tonights BBC forecast.
Grand dry morning, kids were devastated there's no snow
Aye them weather presenters know what there at
You'd think we were in for snow of the.proportions of 1947...... I laughed when the weather man said it would be all gone by Saturday
Wet wet wet here,and quiet mild, was expecting blizzard like conditions
Yeah but the chances of it returning a LOT colder from the east by the following weekend have increased and to put that in perspective,that would drag in air from Poland and Russia where it's as low as minus 30 at the moment,so keep an eye on it?

What direction did the 09/10 cold come from?
Where are you by the way?
Just to put some flesh on this
There is a wave depression over Munster and south Leinster at the moment
The rain on that is currently engaging with the cold air coming down from the north so is turning to snow in places like parts of Cork up to Laois as expected
We've had light sleet from it here and there's snow on the hills
It's dragging away so should die out soon
It's actually behind that that the snowy weather is in shower form and by evening it's going to be affecting all of Ulster,North Leinster north Connaught and west Munster
There's another wave approaching from the northwest today also which might enhance the snow showers all the way down into the southeast by evening
In 2010 it came from Siberia via Scandinavia
This easterly if it happens will come from Siberia also but via mainland Europe
The difference is it would be much colder because it would be making two thirds of its journey here over land on continental Europe that's already down to minus 20 to minus 30
The chances are lowish enough still though
I'll keep ye posted
