Coinciding with night time hours will be helpful. Although until I see it it on the ground I won't get my hopes up : ) March of many weather's indeed.

Surprised at that myself. Expected it to be north Leinster/ Ulster snowfall event. Will be surprised to see anything lying in Cork except for hills.

Yes, Met Èireann say rain will turn to sleet and snow over much of munster and leinster. However nothing about accumulations here and altitude thus it's a very catch all forecast at the moment till further information comes to hand.

Met Èireann updated

TONIGHT - SATURDAY 9TH MARCH

Rain, with some heavy bursts, will spread up over much of the country this evening and early tonight, turning wintry with some falls of sleet and snow. The rain, sleet and snow will turn more showery overnight, but still occasionally heavy and prolonged over the northern half of the country. The risk of hail and thunder will also increase towards morning. Lows of minus 1 to plus 2 degrees. Light variable winds, becoming fresh to strong westerly, with gales developing on Atlantic coasts towards dawn.


Again nothing much of note yet.

Yeah but this is 2019
People with phones aren't going to be listening to radio one
They're going to be looking at what I posted above and set out on their journeys accordingly
Which leads to the Same confusion as last weekend

Anyone get woken up this morning around 3.45am by the loudest thunder I'ver ever heard? Live just outside Galway, sounded like the city was under bombardment, guess it was a colder air mass moving in, after a few very loud claps, torrential rain for about 20 mins with more thunder - had the heart going 90 for a while.

I'll give judgement tomorrow evening as to what my thoughts are....if I'm online, that is.
you don't work in hedge funds by any chance ?

the impending storm early next week is of more concern to me,alot of people might be surprised given the distraction associated with the white gold.
