Ah i’ll welcome the easterly up until the last day of February or even first couple of days of March. I certainly don’t want it St Patrick’s day onwards.
All roads are now clear apart from some patches in shade on the higher local roads and they might be clear now, there has been a really good melt since I was first out at 9am and returned at 12.30. Just watch out for the potholes
Plenty of snow in the East today, you just have to go to it
Bit of a hail/graupel shower Roscrea (4.3/D 0.1C)
Light snow shower :@
The first few days of March could still potentially be good but after that, exceptional events with a textbook, prolonged Siberian flow would be required to deliver something decent after the first week of March. March easterlies usually result in night time snow and sunrise super speed thaws.
Not so much as a flake of snow on Mt. Leinster.

Its been appalling tbh. I may be wrong about the dates, but apparently in some areas of the west the last two dry days in a row were the 24th & 25th of July. Has anywhere in the country got, say, 5 dry days in a row since last summer?
The last time I did here at Grange, D13, was 1st-6th November.
Same down here in cork, ground is drenched and any chance it has to dry (it was very sunny 2 days ago but then the storm came and soaked everything again). Grass and parks are all mud, drains are pretty much full. Need a good few dry days now to dry it out. Can't walk in my garden!
2 possibly 3
But I honestly don't think we have had a 72 hour period without rain
And 2 days has happened only a handful of times
The ground is saturated
