Severe Weather Snow / Ice Weds 28 FEB ( Onwards ) ** READ MOD NOTE POST#1**

MOD NOTE

This is a busy thread and as a result the Mod Team will be taking a zero Tolerance approach to trolling, flaming and personal abuse.

Don’t say you weren’t warned!!

And please don’t feed - report & let the Mod team deal with Troublesome Posters/Trolls



Time to start a new thread as the other one reaches its capacity!



I'm sure kermit.de.frog will add a forecast and keep it updated for us.

So to kick it off a few mouth watering charts of the snow and cold potential over the coming days, stay safe.

Looking very windy going into Thurs night and look at those windchill readings!

An immediate red is warranted
Cork was added to the red warning at 8pm per Met Eireann.

We are not used to blizzards in this country but as far as I know they are extremely dangerous to be out in as you literally can't see a thing and could easily get lost/hurt/in serious accident etc- they are right to warn people - its actually genuinely serious.
