    Looks like a Stellar GFS run this evening!


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,060 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC


    Valentia got below freezing and just up the coast I had +3.1c! Typical!


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,060 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC


    Knock still reporting snow and 1c at 4pm, must look festive around there now!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,520 ✭✭✭nagdefy


    No showers making it to my neck of the woods. It would be expected to be so with the wind direction. Always a pity as anything that would come would be snow.

    Time for the men and women of the North and West to enjoy the action:)

    Ballyhaise 0C at 4pm. In fairness a very decent cold snap for the end of November. I know 2010 was exceptional but bar that year this compares well.

    Snow monster moving in to the west @15:00 on the radar loop?

    On a serious note, showers not holding together too long after moving over land.

    I'm not seeing anything too stellar. Better than the last run though.

    Yeah, just leaves us sitting under a chilly high pressure for the end of next week, would bring some dry weather with significant frosts. To be honest I would prefer that to the wintry/sleety mix we are getting at the moment.

    Temp peaked at 3.9c here today. Was rising steadily but a dirty hail shower at about 3pm dragged it right back down again.

    Could see snow on the far off Mayo mountains on the way to work this morning.

    Whatever about the north, not much to get excited about here in the west today.. well, at least in my part of the it. I think Mayo/Sligo may have done relatively better.

    Very cold here in West Clare, 2.9c, already lower than last night's min.

    There was a hail shower earlier that left a slight layer on everything, melted within 20minutes though.

    I note that Shannon and Knock airports both have possible snow showers in the 5pm TAF until 1am.

    Snowing at Knock again and 0c at 6pm.

    1.9c here in West Clare with a DP of 1c, shower on the way but looks like we're only getting the tailend of it.

    I note Kerry airport also has snow listed in its TAF (Terminal Area Forecast)


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,544 ✭✭✭Samaris


    Been snowing on and off in S Connemara all afternoon. About an hour and a half of it from 4pm, then another lot just now. Ground's sopping wet though, so nothing sticking at 1C.

    If it gets any colder though, the roads are going to be skating rinks in the morning.

    Snowing now east of Kerry Airport - temp gauge is out of action


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,060 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC


    Had a brief sleet shower there, however it's raised the temperature from 1.8c to 2.8c


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,235 ✭✭✭Oneiric 3


    Snow shower just passed and a bit of 'settling' on cars and grass. Not sufficient enough, however, for me to be arsed to take the camera out and take a pic.

    Looking at the Met Eireann short range forecast the temperature is to increase here as the night goes on, that's the brief chance of something slightly wintry ended here anyway, temperature up to 3c.

    More to come over the next few weeks hopefully.

    West Clare.

    Nearly stopped now, but very strange.

    Had given up all hope as the temperature was above 3c, but suddenly sleet came and dropped the temperature to less than 2c and it started snowing.

    No point posting poor quality pictures.
