    We will have to rely on cooling or evaporative cooling. I am not sure if the temperature will drop further.

    The wind is south easterly, calm.


    Still 0C here in Co. Down, clear blue sky... 15.45pm


    beautiful winters day!

    Interesting temperatures around today and large variations on the wow.met.ie map.

    I'm particularly taking notice of the 5c's from Met Eireann ACS stations from Tulla, Clare to Emyvale, Monahan. A thin sliver of a warm sector?

    A little mild blip on my own AWS chart too, but put that down to the sunshine coming through: http://www.laoisweather.com/images/temp.png

    Interesting little dynamics going on across the country. :D

    Already gone below freezing here in Kildare now


  • Registered Users Posts: 605 ✭✭✭ffarrell7


    Up in Dublin Mountains today.... Around 350 metres.... Up to 20 cm of snow in places.... Have taken loads of photos but they won't attach when I click on the attach files pin.. Any other way of doing it????

    Feck all snow in South Wicklow but beautiful day, biting wind is gone, snow remaining just on the mountain tops.

    The charts seem to forecast it falling below 0c here, but I am not convinced. It is falling very slowly.

    The only saving grace would be evaporative cooling.

    Magilligan (sea level, coastal station) was colder than Lough Fea (225 m amsl, well inland) at 2 pm (1.4 v 1.9 °C, respectively).

    They may be too big or of a unusual format. try resizing into jpg or png format for example.

    Have a weather station?, why not join the Ireland Weather Network - http://irelandweather.eu/

    It's beginning to cloud over now. It's a pity we could not have a freeze before the cloud rolled in.

    Didn't thaw here in parts of county Galway at all, temp in Galway city was around 3 degrees when I left there at 3pm. Its between 0 and. 5 roughly 20kms away from the city.

    Decent accumulations in the west Wicklow mountains this afternoon likely to be topped up tonight

    Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing. BUT, I appeal to everyone not to go driving on the hunt for snow. First of all there is a 5km limit on travel, which means almost nobody should be up there.

    Mountain rescue teams are busy all over the country rescuing ill equipped people. Don't be putting these brave volunteers to work.

    Keep everyone safe.

    Its 1 degree here at 4.45 thin cloud to my north west. I still reckon it will get to zero or less when darkness falls.

    Interesting night ahead.

    Yes you can crash your car in packed snow like that and you’ll be stuck of hours.

    I learn’t my lesson last year.

    UKMO for midnight:

    Is this system going to bring warm advection ahead of the front or will temperatures be stable within the precipitation? I am wondering if I manage to get down to 0c, will we be able to sustain that temperature?

    The GFS says you'll get -3c uppers around 1am according to this:

    It also shows rain on the back edge for areas within 10 miles of Lough Foyle/North Coast:

    Just wondering if we cool to 0c in precipitation if we can sustain that for a few hours.


  • Registered Users Posts: 131 ✭✭KingJeremy


    I can not get enough of this weather - bright blue skies and so cold. I don’t have a weather station but when I was in the car a few times during the day the temp said it didn’t get to more than +1.
    Lough Derg well frozen in parts - attached is a pic of a couple of hardy swans walking on it.
    Note: this is all well within my 5km ;-)

    It would be great if you could, however it also needs to be -0.1c or lower all the way back up to the cloudbase right overhead and into the cloud layer too.

    And yet you predict up to 5cm for your area. Despite weakened precipitation.

    I think he's predicted slight dusting to 5cm. No one ever knows exactly how these things work out
