    MOD NOTE

    This is a busy thread and as a result the Mod Team will be taking a zero Tolerance approach to trolling, flaming and personal abuse.

    Don’t say you weren’t warned!!

    And please don’t feed - report & let the Mod team deal with Troublesome Posters/Trolls



    Time to start a new thread as the other one reaches its capacity!



    I'm sure kermit.de.frog will add a forecast and keep it updated for us.

    So to kick it off a few mouth watering charts of the snow and cold potential over the coming days, stay safe.

    Looking very windy going into Thurs night and look at those windchill readings!

    Biblical snowfall here in Cork the last 3 hours. With all the concentration on Storm Emma this has been overlooked.
    An immediate red is warranted

    Cork was added to the red warning at 8pm per Met Eireann.

    Just watching the 9 news here, and I have to say the panic they are promoting is incredible. 'Stay indoors from 4pm tomorrow'. 'Dangerous blizzard' etc. Have we moved to North Korea?

    We are not used to blizzards in this country but as far as I know they are extremely dangerous to be out in as you literally can't see a thing and could easily get lost/hurt/in serious accident etc- they are right to warn people - its actually genuinely serious.

    Finally! Migrated from Wicklow this morning to family in Sandyford to hopefully get more snow! Got to play in the stuff from last night, but need more for an igloo!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,024 ✭✭✭ d'Oracle


    What are those feckin flying yokes on the weather supposed to be?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,816 ✭✭✭ redsteveireland


    Absolutely hammering it down in East Galway, that streamer all the way from Wales has really delivered here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,018 ✭✭✭ thomil


    Speaking of cold. Snowing pretty nicely again out here in Ballincollig. Temperature now -2.6°C, with a dew point of -4°C. And that big blob on the radar has yet to reach us.

    Good luck trying to figure me out. I haven't managed that myself yet!

    Looks like Cork City is about to be hammered:

    Been waiting for this shower in South Dublin for sooooo long... think I'll have a nice bubble bath instead while listening to The Blizzards.
