    Got down to -4.3°c last night in South Laois with a grass frost of -9.4°c.

    Beautiful sunrise looking southeast from Rossmore, Laois County.

    A beautiful few days alright. Apart from Wednesday, been a great start to spring.

    another beautiful day after a night of heavy frost.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,367 ✭✭✭esposito

    Met Eireann saying it could go as low as -5 tonight. Surprised they didn’t put out a low temperature warning.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,053 ✭✭✭mcburns07

    Stunning day here in Kerry, barely a cloud in the sky. Great spell of weather for the garden with the ground drying out nicely .Topping trees and pruning branches and two cuts of the grass so far, good to get the work done this week because as Gonzo pointed out looks quite wet and breezy /blustery at times over the next 10 days.

    0.5C atm

    Lots of -5s at 0700. Mt Dillon, Markree, Dunsany and Gurteen.

    I was chatting to my cousin who lives in Switzerland in a town at 450m asl. She's only seen a dusting of snow 3 times this winter and it melted everytime well before dusk. 700m or so faired a lot better. Been a poor winter snow wise for a lot of Europe.

  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 16,886 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gonzo

    yep another very poor winter for European snow, almost as bad as the pv of doom winter 2019/2020. Snow being very much confined to Norway, northern half of Sweden, Finland and Greece. Same places in for alot of snow over the next week with Greece possibly getting hammered next weekend. This seems to be a regularly occuring winter theme over the past 10 years which can carry over into the first 6 weeks of Spring.

    The PV and the Atlantic took away our winter yet again this year, hoping for more in the way of success next winter but we will probably face another strong PV.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,915 ✭✭✭appledrop

    Cold out there today + no sunshine to heat it up like we have had for the last week.

    I think the change in weather is on the way.

    Bitter wind. Must be coming off the cold Irish Sea. Feeling very raw. Brass monkey weather.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,915 ✭✭✭appledrop

    Yep, I got the walk in, then straight home.

    Brrr too cold to be out in that.

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,222 ✭✭✭✭Thelonious Monk

    Jesus I can't feel my hands after jogging in that wind. Coldest it's been in ages. The steam from the incinerator in Dublin Port is at a right angle to the chimney going directly east, most of the year it's heading west out to sea.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,401 ✭✭✭✭Supercell

    The wind is absolutely cutting out there, being honest its taken a lot of the pleasure of jogging away, hopefully getting better soon.

    Have a weather station?, why not join the Ireland Weather Network -

    March always reminds me of the Battle of the Bulge. It's often winter's last major offensive, like the Germans.

    Also it's success is often determined by cloudy or clear skies. Snowfall lasts longer in cloudy conditions as the stronger sun's influence doesn't come into play as much. It feels colder in cloudy conditions too. Like the first 10 days of the Bulge were cloudy and foggy, the US couldn't bring the weight of their vastly superior air force to bear on the advancing Germans. But when the skies cleared, game over.

    I wouldn't normally ask but its a big day for me on Saturday so just wondering what's the weather going to be like in the North West mainly sligo around midday Saturday and into the afternoon.

  • Moderators, Home & Garden Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 17,932 Mod ✭✭✭✭DOCARCH

    Windy morning. Gusting 57kts in DunLaoghaire atm.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,066 ✭✭✭OldRio

    Woken yet again by the wind howling at about 3am.. We've gone from an utterly stunning day on Sunday to cloud wind and rain. (Typical weather)
