    Big massive fat flakes above 300 metres. Was starting to stick above 350 metres.

    It will be interesting to see how much is lying on high ground tomorrow morning if we get a lot of showers.

    Correct, some real heavy showers today in north Donegal.

    Windscreen wipers were struggling to shift it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,884 ✭✭✭SlowBlowin


    Pretty wild up here now.

    Strong gusts starting, with hail and lightning, a nearby strike just scared the sheep more senseless..

    Its all very intermittent up here. We have clear skies and no wind or rain at the moment. Every time the squalls come through it gets wild.

    Wild out here. Is it ever going to stop storming? met ie admit 2 above freezing.

    The noise woke me even through excellent ear plugs... Heavy gusts and high volume deluges.

    Well that wasn’t a fun experience! I didn’t expect much snow if at all, truth be told I expected nothing.

    Drove up to 350m, out of nowhere at around 900 feet the road turned white. Got up to the top and skid, road was undriveable, so had to reverse down the hill. Looks to be about 2cm up there.

    Quite a nervy experience as my tracks had been filled in fairly rapidly and my car was skidding at times. The road itself is windy and very steep, so I was concerned that I would end up rolling down uncontrollably and slam into the bridge at the bottom!

    Heavy snow showers in Cork City. Can't say I was expecting that! Huge, wet flakes that aren't really sticking.

    900 feet was the freezing level.. and cold flow will be quickly cut off down there.

    But hey never miss an attempt to give me a wee dig.

    Just back in from a run this morning. I’m just hoping there’s no downgrade for next week because it’s miserable out again. Any chance spring could come?

    The wind dropping for a few days will make a considerable difference -out here at least.

    Wet mayo offshore... accidental typo!

    We have had some brightness here at intervals and the cloudscapes are a glory .
