Athenry +3/+1.

It's plausible it was snow. A heavy shower passed over Achill Island around 23:00, and going by the crappy radar coverage in the area it was probably heavier and larger than it looks on radar. Probably enough oomph in it to bring temps low enough for temporary snow.

It's still 4 degrees in east Galway. That's not cold enough for snow

Tomorrow's feature is the best chance for eastern and southern counties for some snow in the evening. Marginal but keep the fingers and toes crossed.



Ninja snow is best snow

The ‘LESS THAN 1 CM FCST’ wording is enough to wipe any hope out of a snow lover.

To stay within mod instructions, I'll re answer this by saying a down draft of colder air in a heavy shower commonly known as evaporated cooling can be sufficient to temporarily create conditions locally in the shower for snow to reach the ground

I'd fully agree with the point though that soft hail and snow can be in destinguishable

Got home a few minutes ago to some sleet. I was not really expecting snow from the trough
tonight, but later on as the colder air comes in behind it.

Have been keeping an eye on nra weather readings during the evening for the fun of it. Nothing encouraging about them regarding snow potential by and large but in the last adjustment that I checked, the air temp at Knock nra site dropped O.4 of a degree in a short period to 1.6c and Charlestown on the N5 dropped something similar to 2c. I see knock airport is 1c as of midnight. Not probably going to change much but maybe a sign of slightly colder air filtering down. But then again could be 3c the next time I look at it!
Edit. Just checked again. Those readings were at midnight. At 00.20 Knock has dropped to 1.3c and Charlestown to 1.7c. Definitely creeping downwards.

Dew points are falling back now as well. I see 0.6c dp at Claremorris so the snow level is falling now.
