Oh no a Kermit thread
I observed this on Met UK today.
I would be excited if staying at home but have a trip planned East to West on Saturday. Eeek

Im a disbeliever on this occasion Kermit.

I think 5 to 8c and just cold rain.

Thanks for highlighting an interesting possibility though.

Unless we get something akin to last Friday night, I'm not interested. Snow at this time of year is just Meteorological diarrhea.

None.

Expect a nice stiff icy wind and a few sharp showers though, could be some hail, but you won't see any kind of wintry disruption in Salthill.

Love cold and snow but that ship has sailed.......spring weather please. Anything we get from this will likely be a cold, slushy mess. The snow we got around Paddy's day last year is a case in point.

The snow of March 18th 2018 was anything but a mess.

Still Ulster, North Connaught for the snow on Saturday this morning.

Still time for some adjustments either way.

Heavy pulses of rain elsewhere (as of this morning's model guidance)

Status Yellow - Snow-ice warning for Donegal

A spell of snow on Friday night and early Saturday morning will lead to poor driving conditions and accumulations of up to 3 cm. On high ground accumulations are likely to be greater.

Valid: Saturday 16 March 2019 00:01 to Saturday 16 March 2019 12:00

Agreed. Patricks day last year was one of the coldest days I can remember (incredible windchill) but still the snow melted pretty quickly where I was (in Waterford that weekend).

I don't think this weekend will be anywhere nearly as successful as Paddy's weekend last year in terms of snow, last year that was an easterly and brought properly low temperatures nationwide.

Saturday's snow risk looks very low away from high ground:

Precipitation mostly of rain throughout the country during daylight hours:



Chance of wintry showers early Saturday night, GFS tend's to overcook these snowrisks.
