    Worth keeping a seperate thread for this spell of weather I think , could be some interesting observations coming in over the next couple of days.

    I wish it was an April fool :( I'm driving out of Connacht tomorrow across the country - Hopefully the roads won't be too bad.

    Although I could see it in the charts I was kinda hoping this would not happen , the little taste of summer last week turned my head !

    I think it could be a every season in a day type of weather .

    The WRF -NMM fairly gung ho with the snow /wintry shower potential .

    Blustery day with a notable windchill. Temperature look to struggle to get up to 5 or 6C in general tomorrow, maybe up to 7 or 8C near coasts .

    The Euro 4's take on the sleet / snow showers, not showing much accumulating on this run.

    Shows the convective nature of the wind gusts well especially along coasts.

    The strong winds did not materialize yet going to be quite windy all the same .

    ECM showing some snow accumulations on hills /Mountains mainly.

    Every sort of a shower tomorrow by the looks of it. Heavy squally showers with thunder and hail thrown in for good measure.

    Too late for this messing. Bring on another heatwave please, and lock winter away in its cupboard until November.

    Winter isn't allowed to be released from November to February, remember?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,852 ✭✭✭ pauldry


    It can snow any time up until June really

    The Arctic weather seems to be shoved down here in Spring commonly now.

    It will probably be cold ALL April compared to average.

    Still a "balmy" 5c here.

    Id say daytime showers will be so blowy that any whiteness will disappear with each shower ceasing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,852 ✭✭✭ pauldry


    Not anymore. Hail has arrived 3c


  • Registered Users Posts: 30,526 ✭✭✭✭ Graces7


    There really are few words!

    Stormed in out here. ocean a maelstrom, hail battering the aluminium roof and walls, wind howling. Bitterly cold

    Tristan da Cunha looks good ;)..

    2° Meath. Some ice on windscreens. Beautiful sunrise.

    Snowing in South Leitrim.
    Sick of this weather. Fed up to the back teeth.

    Heavy sleety rain in cork city at the moment


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,295 ✭✭✭✭ Mint Sauce


    Some snow in higher parts of Sligo Town just before 6am. Sticking only to the windscreens though.

    I was going to work today (outdoors) but I've decided to stay at home! :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,090 ✭✭✭ OldRio


    Coming down heavy now and starting to stick.
    Time to light the fire and grab a book.


  • Registered Users Posts: 223 ✭✭ konman


    Snowing heavy, starting to stick on grass and cars, 5 miles south of Tuam. Approaching the end of the shower now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,409 ✭✭✭ Danno


    Recent snow in Durrow, South Laois. 2.3c with Dewpoint hovering between 0.2c and 0.5c.


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,549 ✭✭✭✭ RobertKK


    Hail, then snow, currently a dusting, hills north east of Kilkenny.


  • Registered Users Posts: 30,526 ✭✭✭✭ Graces7


    White stuff sideways. Cannot see the mountains so no idea if it is sticking, The path here is snow-scattered but cannot stand up out there so no closer observations on that from me... reminds me of trying to walk the dog way back as I ended up marching on the spot. ;)

    it is so bad I have broached my small emergency fuel stocks.... solid fuel stove alight..

    Showers dying as they move across the midlands, not really making it into the Greater Dublin Area, I wonder will we escape with a mostly dry day. Bitterly cold outside.

    The next few weeks look on the cool side and turning more unsettled. Once we clear this northerly, easterly winds will dominate. Why couldn't we have this in January and February.

    With solar heating coming into play now, perhaps areas further east will begin to see some action soon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 30,526 ✭✭✭✭ Graces7


    A welcome short break in activity here, but the (marine) gale warning is in force.

    No snow on the mountains except a frail dusting to the south west.

    Ah here it all comes again..

    I was out at the north facing back and the ocean is a white-ridged glory .. too bitterly cold to be out for more than a few seconds.,

    and hail and severe snow battering the dwelling again.
