    Like a winter wonderland here in the Burren.
    The valley is like it was in 2010

    It's 4.5c here in wexford atm. It got down to -3 last night.

    The 12.00 met report shows that
    Dunsany, meath is 0c
    Mt Dillon, Roscommon is -1
    and Oak Park, Carlow is -2

    I wonder will Oak Park stay below freezing all day?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,502 Derek Easy Block


    Has there yet been a day in the past week / recently when temps at a station have not gone above freezing?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,421 ✭✭✭ Danno

    It was predicted to be 6c in Galway today, but the fog did not fully lift, it did not even hit 1c.
    No rain and no wind, so it's glorious.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,559 pedigree 6


    Hot off the press Mt Dillon is back to -1c at 16.00.

    despite only reaching 1C here today, it was a glorious day and didn't even feel as cold as that. Infact there has often been wet, damp, mucky days reaching 12C that have felt far colder.

    Stealthfins, Would that be the Caher Valley?? Burren sure was fab looking today!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,449 ✭✭✭ pad199207

    That's a great satellite picture of Ireland. The fog shows perfectly the rivers, lakes and canals of Ireland.
    If anyone ever wondered where fog came from or how was formed, that's a perfect picture to show them that the moisture in the fog comes from said rivers, lakes and canals or bogs of Ireland.
    Especially in our current weather conditions.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,449 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    Not a single breath of wind was recorded at my station today
