    Wet and 3.8c here in West Clare this morning.

    Incredibly lovely out there when viewed from the window.. Scattering of snow in bright sun, fragile wisps of cloud climbing the steep slopes, sky a pattern of blue, cloud, sun, shadow.

    Looking out the window in Sligo, roof tops, cars and gardens are white. Paving and roads clear. Still could be a fun drive later though.

    I thought I imagined that - knew I saw a flash out the corner of my eye. Heard a rumble but it was the same time as a feckin bin truck passed.

    Turning white out there now

    Great pics.....radar returns are showing that area of precip to be rather large and very heavy in places. You seem to be doing well. Do you know what height above sea level you are at?

    Around 85/90M ASL I think. Still going here, longest snow shower I can remember in a long time


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,877 ✭✭✭pauldry


    snowed this morning in Sligo for our usual 1 hour morning Winter/Spring fall.

    Still snow possible anywhere in next 2 or 3 days though less likely in West than East

    The East Coast could get snowfall tonight especially Wicklow

    I dunno how to put pics on here. Why cant you just share like other sites.

    Anyways my one pic is on my site http://weathergossip.blogspot.com

    Others have me kids in them so I left them out

    Exact same elevation as me so that means there is still hope. How's it looking now?

    The precip is arriving in Mullingar now so will be interesting to hear back what's falling (and hopefully sticking) there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,268 ✭✭✭dinorebel


    Intermittent heavy snow showers here in Letterkenny for the last hour.


  • Registered Users Posts: 228 ✭✭blast06


    That big blob over the midlands on the rainfall radar is snow. Ground white in Athlone. Meath and Louth should get an hours worth from it

    It's still going but much lighter now, sky starting to brighten up also so think that's the end of it for now. It's starting to melt already from the road but still on the grass. Ah well, was nice while it lasted, hopefully we'll get a bit more later
