I didn't state a fact! I just asked a question! And I just stated what the met Éireann forecaster said at 755am
You are looking for a land breeze and how far inland that is travelling before getting to you

Precipitation type appears to be all snow also, so this is actually looking good so far.
Could u show the whole country on those charts we don’t all live where u are.

The site he is posting images from is: https://meteologix.com/ie

MOD NOTE: If possible, when quoting other's posts - remove the [ img ] and everything in between [ /img ] to save thread space - particularly if the other's post has multiple imagery.

Many thanks!

There isn’t much snow for the rest of the island. The snow intensity fades as soon as the front heads southeast.

It appears to me that there will be very light snow (that might fizzle away) in the centre portions of the island. Galway etc won’t get snow due to the SW wind coming off the Atlantic.

There may be small pulses of heavier snow in some places south of Ulster (but not SE).

I think from Athlone,& Ofally North meath to Louth up to cavan monaghan across to Fermanagh,Tyrone and inland sligo (Tubercurry) could be the sweet spot for most snow off this

Sounds like there is a decent chance of a small covering in Dublin. Always a bit hit and miss but we had a dusting of snow in Dublin a week or so ago when I expected nothing.

Tomorrow (7th Jan) will be the 39th anniversary of the mother of all snow events, in the east anyway.
