    And the result in Wicklow... Any snow?

    We got a small dusting of snow on low ground here in the midlands today, very pleasantly surprised to be honest. I thought it was only forecast for the west and north on high ground?

    Was out at home about 8:30, snow was localised as I drove away a couple of miles there was none.
    But here's what it was like as I left home.

    We had planned on going west this weekend. Very glad we cancelled the trip

    Thanks. Phantom 4 standard. Saved me the trouble of climbing the hill. ��

    No ice snow or frost in these parts today and any frost cleared very quickly yesterday morning.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,047 ✭✭✭Clonmel1000


    What was the lowest temperature recorded over the last few days?

    Mullingar and Moorepark had -3.5 on Friday, haven't checked Thursdays ME data, but Saturday was a bit milder.

    Edit just checked Thursday and it mostly was milder than Friday, so I'm guessing the above was the "peak"

    Thanks for that. It didn’t amount to much in these parts so was interested to see where it did.

    Well, the Met Eireann trigger for a Yellow alert for Snow/Ice (which is why we end up with these 'event' threads on Boards most of the time) is fairly vague and probably one of those things that'll be in place for a lot of winters:
    Slippery paths and roads due to accumulation of ice on untreated surfaces

    Was well warranted to be honest when you see the amount of car crashes it caused.

    People in this country can't drive in any weather that's not ideal!
