    Very strong gusts of wind in cork. Possibly a sign of more to come? ��

    All mention of snow removed from Shannon TAF, really losing faith in Met Eireann's TAF's.

    Night all

    Dewpoint is -2.5c now though very low!

    Well even if there's no snow, if the temp is below zero the roads will be lethal tomorrow so be careful out there

    Yep - heavy snow now & sticking :)
    Best of luck to your OH tomorrow - if it's the city test routes the gritters are out in force so it'll be grand.

    My TAF decoding abilities are limited so I had to look up "FBL".

    It stands for "faible" which is the French word for "feeble".

    I found that amusing.

    Temperature now 2.9c here in West Clare, dew -0.5 and no precip.

    If the Net Weather radar is to be believed then there should be large amounts of snow around the country at the moment.

    Travelled west out of Galway tonight through many heavy snow and hail showers hope its not as forecast, on the road early in the morning.

    Thanks, heavy and sticking here but the wind is playing havoc again, blowing it every which way but down.
    Actually the first time I have heard a snow shower approach with the sudden increase in wind.

    car, roofs and grass are now white here from snow, north east of Kilkenny City.
    Only a dusting, but it looks like it will accumulate over night.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,505 ✭✭✭✭Xenji


    First light dusting of snow in Castlebar, sticking but the shower did not last long, dp - 0.7C.

    Wow! What a shower of hail!! Castlebar


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,634 ✭✭✭✭Graces7


    Battered and bruised by gales and squally gusts but not a snowscene in sight at the front, and still too dark and dreadful to venture round the side of the cottage. I think there was a flake or two in the air as I forced the door closed against the rush of air ..

    "On such a night as this..." Getting too old for this, I really am. :eek:
