    Spot Prediction Questions:

    1: What will be the lowest temperature recorded tonight?
    2: What station will record the lowest from Met Eireann's Network (including ACS Stations - see wow.met.ie or wow.metoffice.co.uk)

    Update: Give your top three stations and values!

    My guess: Thomastown ACS (Kilkenny) -9.6c
    Tullow -8.9c
    Durrow -8.7c

    Durrow should be disqualified from the competition! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,611 ✭✭✭ circadian


    Kilkit -5.2
    Naas -6.5
    Oak Park - 7.2

    I think Malin Head will come in at the warmest around 3 degrees.

    Tullow -7.7 because that's the temp I said for the monthly weather forecast for mt hahaha

    E: make it tullow, oak park, and carlow if three are needed, all -7.7


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,525 ✭✭✭ Darwin


    Well given the automated met.ie temp forecast is showing -9 for my location tomorrow morning, let's try:

    Lynally (Tullamore): -8.1c
    Roscrea: -9.2c
    Portlaoise: -9.0c


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,194 ✭✭✭✭ M.T. Cranium


    -9.1 at Danno's location, -8.5 somewhere else within 50 km, I don't know the co-op network in much detail, but among the official stations, -7.4 at Oak Park.

    Gurteen -8.2 C
    Oak Park -8.1 C
    Durrow: -7.8 C

    Forgefield (S.Kildare, MetE WOW) -> -8.3c

    There is a 13-cm covering of lying snow there, so no doubt helping the temps fall. Max today was -3.5 C.

    When and how will the minima be determined? The synops report minima at 6 am, but at this time of the year the actual minimum is reached a couple of hours after that, so in that case it will have to be the daily data the following day. I don't think the WOW stations report actual minima, do they?

    Anyway, my choices are

    -6.3 Johnstown
    -5.8 Oak Park
    -5.3 Garrymore

    Dunsany -8.4C
    Oak Park -9.6C
    Mullingar -7.2C

    it's possible some places without any stations could get to -10C.

    Chilly over the snowfields near Edinburgh

    I doubt it. I can't see -7 being beaten. Current dewpoints are down to around -4 and should fall another couple of degrees. That will be the limit of the low temperatures.

    Steady at -4 minima the last 2 obs, talk of -10 at any given station is a bit fanciful.
