Dublin Airport and government ministers make 'wait and see' statements about impending snow storm
Worried about your flight? Or wanting a snow day from school?
Well, you'll have to wait until at least Tuesday morning before we know anything for certain.
Dublin Airport said as much in a tweet on Monday, telling travellers to keep a close eye on the weather in the lead up to their flights, and to check in with their airline, as well as staying up to date on the Dublin Airport Twitter feed itself.
It's too early to tell what impact the bad weather forecast for later this week may have on operations here & at other European airports. If travelling later this week please check with your airline closer to your flight time & continue to monitor this feed for latest updates.

Meanwhile, anyone who isn't escaping the country, and might actually be wanting it all to go a bit snowpocalypse-y so they can get a day or two off school / college / work, then the emergency meetings that took place today basically came to the conclusion that they'd wait and see how it all pans out.

The committee will meet again early Tuesday morning, and have made no official statement as of yet, but Minister for Housing and Local Government Eoghan Murphy, who led the meeting of the National Emergency Coordination Group on Monday morning, said that things were being kept under review for the time being (via The Independent).
Meanwhile, the folks at Met Eireann have not given any further updates on the new weather warnings issued at 11am on Monday morning, with a Status Orange snow and ice warning for Dublin, Carlow, Kildare, Laois, Louth, Wicklow and Meath, and a Status Yellow snow and ice warning for Kilkenny, Longford, Wexford, Offaly, Westmeath, Cork, Tipperary and Waterford.
Keep an eye on all social media for any updates.
