    How desperate have we become that we are posting about the odd snow showers here and there ��

    No more than any other year. Are memories really that short?

    Snowing lightly here now.

    South Sligo
    90m asl

    Sleet in South Laois

    A band of snow around athboy seems to be stalling, will it have enough umph to push eastwards ?

    been watching that band, it seems to be breaking up quickly now, doubt it will even make it as far as south Meath or Dublin. I'm not expecting anything from this event so if there are a few snowflakes on the bin lid in the morning that will be a bonus.

    Wishful thinking imo, I'd say it'll soon die a death before reaching the greater Dublin area at all.

    Just looked out the window to see everything blanketed in white in Letterkenny, thought it was just a hail shower but side windows on the car are covered so must have been some snow in the mix.

    Perhaps a few showers will be more aggressive later, however the rate of the death of that one really spelled it out.

    I'm not sure how we'll fare here in Galway City, but I doubt it will be very well.

    Can i just say we just got a flurry from that broken up cloud here in my area of meath, i can count the flakes that fell on the roof of the car, trust me lads, its nothing to get excited by.

    Sky is clear now, think the roads will be slippy in the morning

    LMAO i think these northwesterlies are going to be a real killer


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,096 ✭✭✭piplip87


    Fairly belting it down here in Virginia. Not expecting it to stick around.


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 16,631 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gonzo


    not a single flake has made it here, so going to call it a night.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,309 ✭✭✭lolie


    First half decent snow shower this winter.
    The ground is not cold enough for it to stick though.
    Roads will be lethal if it clears up and freezes later.

    Jaysus I'm 10 miles out the city and its raining heavily, not sleet, wet rain.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55 ✭✭the2hurdys


    Stopped again twas very brief!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,468 ✭✭✭✭guil


    Very little frost in the Curragh over night. Much heavier yesterday morning. The drive to work this morning was 1c compared to -3 yesterday morning.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,041 ✭✭✭rn


    We got the lightest dusting of snow overnight in West athlone. I can nearly count the flakes on the car. Hasn't stuck on the ground.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 248 ✭✭kod87


    horrible sleety mess here in tipp, miserable morning


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,096 ✭✭✭Whiplashy


    Sleeting here on the tipp/Kilkenny border. Ground is soaked but thankfully it doesn’t seem to have froze overnight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,001 ✭✭✭Lucreto


    Frost was better yesterday. Very thin coating. It looked like it rain during the night.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,235 ✭✭✭✭M.T. Cranium


    Black ice can form in these marginal conditions, especially where skies clear around sunrise to 0930h, don't assume conditions on the road will be what you encountered in your own parking space -- temperatures at many stations are reported as either 0 or 1, so there will be patchy ground frost. Also some of the mixed wintry showers may be briefly heavy and obscure visibility on the roads as well as leaving a slippery surface. Would suggest leaving extra time for any journeys today.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,663 ✭✭✭SleetAndSnow


    Only rain/sleet in cork city. No ice on the cars, everything's just wet and cold. The worst kind of weather!

    Edit: dad just told me the cars were heavily frosted until 5ish.

    A light dusting at Mullameen (near Finea) 400 feet asl. Once we came down from the hills there was nothing.
