I've reported Kermit for using vile and disgusting language in telling us about snow.

A mod might be along soon.

Shows how starved we are for proper snow if you consider that anything but a mess, it was melting as soon as it stopped snowing, looked nice during the snow fall but we're still talking a 24hr type event. There's too much power in the sun and daylight duration at this time of year. Even the picture you posted has foot prints that show it's struggling to stick without sustained snow fall.

I'm not saying it's impossible to get good snow fall at this time of year, historically some of the biggest falls have happened in Spring, I just feel they are outliers and the system for the weekend looks like a marginal mess as is often the case.

6Z HIRLAM's take on it. Snow/rain boundary moves north during Sat morning.

The Warning on the main met eireann site is a bit misleading, a warning triangle that says National Warning, but when you open it, it only covers Donegal?

I got similar, unfortunately it was too late in the year to last very long, which is my point about late season snow events.

The Millennium stadium(or it has a new name) has a retractable roof. Most definitely the game will be on!

Models going for Northern counties getting an accumulation of Snow in the early hours of Saturday and wintry showers to follow during the day across the country , could get thundery on Atlantic coasts towards evening and overnight Sat into Sun.

The LP passing over the country early Sat moving into a colder airmas and colder air moving in over Ireland as the day goes on.





Hard to see much snow on lower ground and hills lasting for very long on Sat morning up in Northern counties with temperatures being shown by the ECM, to get progressively cooler throughout the day .
