    Just in case anyone's on mobile, gally74's location is listed as "knockdoe, galway 150 ASL"

    Can I ask gally74, are you talking about meters or feet ASL?

    All I'm getting is 2 minute windows of 40kt winds and wet hailstones.

    Hopefully they'll get better :)

    Snow/graupel/rain mix, blowing in every direction with the squally winds.

    The showers will be increasingly of snow from now on and then I suspect exclusively snow for most from the early hours.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,780 ✭✭✭jamo2oo9


    Can Dublin expect anything overnight? Haven't found anything that says Dublin could be in for a chance of snow bar the TAF from DUB.

    Wild wild night up here. Rare I am online at this hour, but the gusts are ferocious and terrifying.

    A crescendo of sheer noise, terrifying, and shaking the cottage, then sudden silence at the peak.

    Never heard the like. Every time I fall asleep it wakes me.

    No snow etc on the doorstep and cannot see further than that.

    Just this wind.

    OUCH! Another one...

    West Connemara; 400 ft asl, at the foot of steep sheer mountains,

    Dewpoint down to 0.1C now in Castlebar, plenty of hail today, but no sign of anything more significant yet.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,675 ✭✭✭ronnie3585


    Flew into Dublin airport at around 6 this evening, it was 14 degrees as I left the carpark. By the time I got home to Galway City just after 9, it was down to 2 degrees and sleeting!


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,094 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC


    Dewpoint -0.3 here now in West Clare.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,865 ✭✭✭pauldry


    its currently 2.1c in Sligo

    Was sleeting a while ago but no real heavy showers at all.

    A few on the mountains but the activity of the heavy ones is moving towards the very Northwest.

    Might change overnight but nothing much as yet
