This is going to be interesting to track, some nice heavy snow for Wicklow Mountains is likely, lower levels I wouldn't try to call snow line yet but further north, the better the chance.

The forecast on BBC after the ten o'clock news showed snow moving up over Ireland Sunday night/Monday morning. This has been on their forecast for the past 3 or 4 days. No mention on RTE forecast until last night.

This is the first time I couldn’t be bothered with snow.
Up in Armagh In the caravan so we’ll have to cut the weekend short and return Sunday evening rather than risk staying to Monday and getting into bother.

Seems like the onshore wind is ruining the chance of snow for the east coast again. Monday looks exceptionally cold for the time of year in parts of the North with a high of 1c in April!

Heavy rain and strong easterly winds will become widespread on Sunday evening and night, continuing into Monday morning. The rain turning increasingly to sleet as it spreads north with some snow on hills, and possibly at lower levels also in northern parts.

Further rain, sleet and hill snow for much of Monday in the far north. Elsewhere turning less cold with rain gradually giving way to showers.

The snow level will be rising all the time through Monday morning so it looks like transitional snow to rain at the very most away from windward coasts. Very wet with heavy periods of rain in many areas.

Hirlam shows the Wicklow mountains could get a dumping during the small hours of Monday morning making some roads impassable for a time.
