Seems this is due to streamers feeding off the north coast only afecting north Donegal.
Nothing here in South Donegal either, I'm Barnesmore Gap area but it seems from Donegal Town as far as Killybegs there is nothing at all.

Wind direction will not change (much) but difference will be transition from convective snow to frontal snow....basically will not be relaying on the sea to produce snow.

I'm sure the people who lost their lives thought it was a non event too.
But I wasn't in Munster.. I was here.. And I was just saying this has been another non event here..

People die in bad weather.. It happens.. It's not my fault..

This has been done to death.. Let's not go there..
Guess what, the world doesn’t revolve around you!

Just stopped snowing in Cabinteely in the past 20 mins. Radars seem to be "off". But despite almost 3 hrs of snow, there is scant depth added. Light flakes rather than pellets all morning. Seriously gusty.
