Mod Note: Silly posts removed. And...responses to silly posts also removed!

While some of us may be lucky enough to get some light snow in the next couple of days, note that snow (...inevitably...) leads to heavy moderation!

Lads Im in killarney from wednesday to Friday then travelling back to Dublin. Anyone have a fair idea on possible disruption in travelling down and back and in Killarney itself? Will Kerry get any snow or is it too far south? Thanks

We usually do well in cork from a nw direction in getting precipitation unless of course it's modified and just rain.

Well Wicklow Co Co are running with it anyway - just got the text alert... Maybe playing it down in my head, but not expecting much from a north westerly, even at this level tbh. I await to be corrected by artic tree though!

I'll meet you for coffee in the airport! I'm flying to Tenerife at 12.


My flight is later at 16.40. Hopefully you're well on your way by the time I get there! :-) I'm so conflicted in my emotions about this weather!! If I can't fly on Thursday, there better be enough snow in my back garden for a massive snowman!

We seem to be good to go for Thursday snow almost nationwide now
UK met office are putting the wave more south

It's very very unlikely in my opinion that snow will delay flights from Dublin
Belfast Derry or Knock maybe
