    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.

    Cold crisp air I love it. Should clear the air and kill any flu bugs hanging around.

    The flu bugs live in people at 37C, the frost will only kill flowers and suchlike.

    This mornings snow disappeared gradually during the day and the few flurries this afternoon didn't stick but since dark we've been under a nearly constant shower train and there is almost 2 inches of fluffy whiteness lying at the mo. My weather station has given up the ghost so I have no idea what the temps are.

    Dropped to 0.8c during the shower of snow, probably got lower than some nearby areas due to my elevation of approx 100m.

    Was nice flakes towards the end, not dry but only slightly wet. Still some snow on the windows and roofs of cars.

    Mace head gusting 39 knots.
    Malin 37 Knots.

    +0.5c here in Roundwood. Dry as a bone. Have a lot of outdoor work to do tomorrow so at least it's dry.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,812 ✭✭✭pauldry


    Getting milder a tad now

    Was 0c now a "balmy" 1.2c

    Hope frost n snow stays off till next week.

    I want to run tomorrow

    I am jealous:o Just cloudy and cold over here.

    A decent snow shower in Ballinasloe


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,778 ✭✭✭✭ninebeanrows


    A really cold damp night- even with the brisk wind. It feels more like -10 than 0.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,778 ✭✭✭✭ninebeanrows


    Beefy sleet or snow showers tracking southeast. You could not rule out a dusting anywhere.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,812 ✭✭✭pauldry


    More heavy hail

    Its hailed practically all day

    At 1130pm kerrrrrbooooomm

    And a flash

    Just lashing now

    Indeed. In these situations in the east we can make up for the lack of precip with the mere fact the ground is near freezing and so anything that does fall is likely to hang around.

    You are in the transition to colder airmass and snow will start to fall nearer the coast in the next few hours. It will still be a mix for a while though.

    Very unusual here, a sustained 10mph west wind and temps are sub-zero.


  • Registered Users Posts: 932 ✭✭✭snowstorm445


    Very cold here in Dublin atm, overcast as well. Feels like there should be a few flakes falling. :)

    There's a big blob of snow on the Netweather radar that might make it to Dublin in a couple of hours, but a lot of similar blobs have been expiring somewhere over the midlands. I'm not waiting up for it anyway!

    If it made it to Dublin, it would bypass it. But it won't even get that far. It'll be evaporated very soon.

    What makes you think that? Influenza viruses thrive in cold, dry air.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,975 ✭✭✭finnharpsboy


    Tiniest amount of little flakes falling now in Ballyfermot


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,975 ✭✭✭finnharpsboy


    Scrap that.... heavier now but nothing to get too excited about


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,837 ✭✭✭Edward M


    Quite a bit here through the night, south Cavan, I'm on a bit of a hill, can't see too far to know if its widespread.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,975 ✭✭✭finnharpsboy


    Finished now


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,812 ✭✭✭pauldry


    More hail at 530am but temps of 3c now and rain cold airmass is moving East and id say wet hail and rain today for Sligo and mild and wet tomorrow then wait until Monday night Tuesday


  • Registered Users Posts: 105 ✭✭Periscal


    A band moving across about to hit west Wicklow soon,heading out to 300m asl for a walk now,perhaps first flakes of the season?


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


    Seemed to warm a bit in S Connemara last night. It was noticeably less inclined to result in howling brass monkeys anyway. Sheet of lumpy ice on the windscreen this morning, but the ground is clear (and sodden). Even the ice is the sort that sweeps off rather than gluing itself to the glass. I would -guess- in a totally uninformed way that it is about 3-5C now, but the light is a bit weird - that sort of lowering yellow-white sky with deep gold sunshine and dead calm that could do anything from hail to clear (or both) at any moment.
