Was renting a house up near the scenic carpark on Bray Head last year with a view northwards along the seafront-> harbour-> killiney->Dalkey Island->Howth Head

The lake effect snow off the Irish Sea looked pretty much like that

I wouldn't worry too much what the beeb has to say, they obviously mainly focus their forecasts for the UK.

A cold -1.7c here, also in Rathfarnham.

Just looking out the window over south Dublin towards d4 and there seems to be alot of dark clouds covering the area, can't see north Dublin but hopefully they are nice White fluffy ones bringing snow from that direction

Don't know if anyone has the accuweather iPhone app but my one is telling me that the real feel temp is going to be 991oC at 8am, really don't want to be around for that as I think it will reduce my chance of snow

Wind has gone to NNE at M2 bouy, so certainly I'd say those showers brush the Wicklow and Wexford coasts.

Cold night with a bit of wind which kept all the stations on the coast above freezing, all others dipped below.
Currently 0c here after a low of -1.5. Hard frost.
