    Clear, blue sky, chilling, fierce wind; washing almost all dry... Wonderful to be out in. Dry. Blissfully dry after all the rain and fog and damp.

    Dublin has temporary moderate sleet showers from 11pm and a chance of snow showers from 3am-12pm.

    Shannon has temporary moderate sleet showers from 6pm and temporary moderate snow showers from 9pm.

    Cork has temporary moderate sleet showers from 3am and a chance of moderate snow showers from 4am-10am.

    Just looking out the back here, and the clouds look particularly menacing and 'lumpy'. More like you see before a summer evening downpour.
