You should be happy. This is what you are given. Higher ground of North Leinster, Ulster and Connaught (above 250m) will see significant snowfall today but also sleet and snow of the wet variety to lower levels in to the evening in particular. The snow level will be dropping through the day and will reach it's nadir as the fronts clear east early tonight. However I don't expect most low lying areas to see snow given most of the parameters don't quite support it. But you never know - it's a very marginal situation. A surprise is conceivable.
There will almost certainly be no real disruption but all the same Met Eireann have helpfully provided a warning just in case.
The north midlands is most at risk of snowfall today.
