Rain, sleet snow mix from latest Arome . Definitely could be a good covering for some with this.

Just to clarify for newbies a snow warning for Ireland in March means we have a good chance of seeing snow falling. It doesn't mean you should cancel indoor activities, maybe in mid winter but March snow is just fun non disruptive (in general I know sometimes in severe cases it can)

Yep, same here.

Have you seen the Convective weather thread?

Hahaha, I see what you mean. No, more a case of it's Saturday and I more often than not am no online much, if at all.

As for the various computer models this morning, Unless there are upgrades in the models by this evening, then I'm still not convinced of anything noteworthy for the vast majority of the population tonight. Fingers crossed that I'm wrong!

Regarding the possible wind event in a few days time, I'll keep any chat about it to that thread if/when the thread is created.

If people can’t be bothered to scroll down and actually read the forecast, then that’s their own fault. It’s on the app so if people aren’t informed it’s due to their own laziness. Those pictures are always only a tiny part of the forecast.

WRF just shows North of country getting any worthwhile wintriness.
I see dewpoints will be above 0°C for much of the night till they bottom oit at minus 4 tomorrow in the showers.

So weighting it up , nothing too noteworthy then tonight for many if WRF is correct.

I'm echoing your thoughts. As I mentioned, unless we get upgrades later today, chances are slim for most bar high ground in the northern 2/3 of the country....say from about 250/300m ASL in the middle section of the country and from maybe about 150ish metres ASL in the northern third, for snow to fall and stick readily. That's based on the current information at hand and my estimates might change later.

very low risk of snow in low lying areas away from Northern Ireland according to the latest Hirlam. Looks like rain for the majority of us. Maybe later on things will change.

Met eireann still all rain on their website for cavan tonight and tomorrow
There is a yellow exclamation triangle beside it but that's on every town and you can't even click through to a warning

So Joe soap who sets met Éireann to their home town and who just looks at the 5 day and not the national will be totally unaware
Ridiculous and careless imho

Obviously people here in Kildare are anxious of a repeat of last weekend. I think the confidence is there that there won’t be a repeat. Warnings have been issued though so we see what happens.

I don’t think this potential would be worth GL commenting on anyways. ;-)

Latest Euro4 says "Looks like rain Ted" for tonight.

However Sunday shows plenty of wintriness.

I'm in Belfast today and there is lots of lying snow on the hills and mountains surrounding the city. Seems to be around 200m upwards.
