Low of 1c last night even with the wind off the sea here near Arklow
The real story here was the overnight dp low of -5c
If only it was like that when a front came up
Very unusual to have such dry cold surface air coming in off the Irish Sea
Decent cold air advection going on there

Frost still on the ground despite temperature now 4.4c in a brisk sea wind and sunny

If there was decent ground frost then the dewpoint will have lowered due to deposition.

5c and cloudy right now- even last night it could only manage a measly 3 degrees. I have experienced one proper easterly over here(Surrey) back in 2012, the wind then cut right through me, not like this tepid affair, and we had snow on and off through February and into March. In fairness the BBC forecast never predicted a raging easterly, though. The UK Met Office were correct, as they so often are when we are chasing phantom eastleries, a short standoff before the Atlantic chases the block away. All eyes now on some potent cold zonality courtesy of the GFS. The lads in the east, who scoff at cold zonality, will have to hope the proposed strat warming later in the month works in our favour
