He worded it like a true pro though, with words like, IF, MIGHT, POTENTIAL, POSSIBLE etc. before any mention of snow. We all know it's a bit of a ramp though

Cold with heavy rain spreading to all areas overnight Thursday with falls of 10 to 20mm in places overnight. Towards dawn on Friday, the rain will clear from much of Munster.
Friday: A cloudy wet start in many parts of the midlands and north but the rain will become confined to Ulster during the morning however it will stay cloudy and wet here for much of the day, some sleet or wet snow likely at times, mostly on higher ground. Elsewhere Friday will be a bright, mostly dry day with sunny spells but some showers near the south and west coasts. Cold and frosty on Friday night with fog also and icy stretches.
Saturday: Saturday will be mainly dry and bright with frost clearing, though it will stay cold with afternoon temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees. Very cold and frosty on Saturday night with fog also, risk of icy stretches.
Sunday: A cold and frosty start for many on Sunday morning, but clearing through the morning. Increasing wind and cloud will bring heavy rain into Munster by early afternoon and to most places by early Sunday night. Some very heavy falls in places ( 25mm possible) and some falls of sleet and snow are likely also, especially on higher ground.
Extended outlook is for the cold and unsettled weather to persist. Rain on Monday with some wintry precipitation likely, especially on higher ground, but drier periods at times on Tuesday and Wednesday but showers as well, some wintry.

I must say i am shocked by the forecast, he seemed to almost go out of his way to fail to mention sleet or snow.
I will hold back from a full scathing review.

I wouldn't have minded if he just didn't deal with the weekend and next week but he in fact did and resolutely chose to inform the viewers that it would be all "rain" and "wet".
Even the most conservative of forecasters would have pointed to the risk of wintry precip for people who live on high ground. Unbelievable stuff.

If Gerry is correct, I will just laugh, if not I will be like Gerry, not laughing.

I hope this is not going to be another Gerry Murphy bashing for not being a snow ramper, so far he hasn't been wrong.
Met Eireann could have ramped for snow on Friday given the UK met warning which covered a part of Ireland, but they didn't and were correct.

If it does snow he should be sent for public flogging
