    Still heavy wet snow. No real accumulation. 500 foot up in the Castlereagh Hills.

    Ditto. Updated warning out from the MetO.

    Heavy Snow & Drifting Snow 2036 Tue 23 1200 Wed 24

    Outbreaks of snow will become heavier and more persistent tonight and into Wednesday morning. Accumulations of between 5 and 10cm are expected quite widely, though sleet is more likely along the east coast. Across higher ground in the north falls of 15cm are possible with drifting in the strengthening northeasterly winds. Across Armagh and Down the snow should turn to rain during the morning.

    The public are advised to take extra care and refer to TrafficWatchNI.com (operational hours 07.00 to 21.00 Mon to Fri and 09:00 to17:00 on Saturdays) for further advice on road conditions.

    Right. I'm back home now after a wee jaunt out in the car.

    It's been snowing here since 5pm. We have a light covering at the north (and incidently higher) end of Ballyclare. Down in the town it's not really settling.

    A little disappointing but then I saw it snow for 18 hrs straight in Ballyclare and not a drop of it lay. Yet 5 mins outside ballycare in any direction was snowfest!

    I'm happy with what we get because it's better than nought!

    Been moderate sleet here for the last 5 hours. Outside drenched.

    Not expecting any lying snow tonight, but then again, anything can happen.

    I think this winter has been remarkable in how we've had low temps but very little snow to show for it. It's been one big let-down as far as I can see. Yes, early Jan was bad but more for ice than for any snow. It's always been very marginal - I've never seen so much sleet in my life! diablo.gif

    It hasn't stopped snowing since 5pm however its very very wet stuff, have about 1cm if that. I'm 15 miles from the coast with decent height so unless the precipitation rates increase cannot see anything decent coming off.

    Certainly if your further north west with height should do very well.

    In all fairness every weather report from earlier was sayin the heavy snow would move in around 2am - 6am in places. This is just the light precip need heavier stuff to fall.

    Some parts of the snow here has melted slightly as the snow is light at the minute. Hope it gets heavier don't want it all going away already.

    If I don't need a spade to dig out in the morning I know who to blame. :D

    Well look south at the radar - That is the main band that should drop a few cm's as it intensifies over the North overnight!

    Plus is the main band headin North east maybe hit round Belfast area if you follow it on radar - Can't see much for the North West or am I wrong?

    Looking at the forecasts looks fantastic for the north west.
