The MIN is confirmed at --3.0 (yesterday's weather section met.ie).

First snow looks to be possible 17-19 Jan from today's guidance.

After the first week ...

IMT on 6.8 which is 1.7 above normal.

MAX 13.3 and MIN --3.0.

PRC 16% of normal.

SUN 17% of normal (102/600). Cork was still at zero (also Knock which is not part of contest grid).

After two weeks ...

IMT on 7.5 C with the second week at 8.1 which was 2.9 above normal.

MAX 13.3 and MIN --3.0

PRC still very low at 17%, same as the past week.

SUN has not improved much, 32% overall, 47% for the past week (283/600).

First snow cannot come soon enough.

I hope it snows more definitely later as there was a report at 0200h of snow showers at Dublin A but the temperature was 8 C.

First thing to do is to see if the report survives to appear in "yesterday's weather" graphics, then compare with rest of the country. I have not been watching hourlies, did anyone see any reports of snow? Friday looks promising if not.

I notice a report of snow at Knock at 12 noon on 16th. Thinking that one might be more credible. Thoughts?

I sent a question to Knock Airport's Facebook page asking if they had any snow yesterday and the answer was no, while they could see some on Mt. Errigal in Donegal but that doesn't count.

Okay but it does say "snow showers" in the 12h report under "yesterday's weather" with a temperature of 3 C and 2.1 mm precipitation, if you click on Knock on the map provided. Maybe there was snow falling but not sticking to the ground at the time (I presume in the daytime hours these are observer generated not automated?). I can certainly believe there was no measurable snow, so perhaps the fair thing to do as the question was not worded with measurable snow as the criterion would be to wait for that and see how far apart the two occasions are, make some sort of scoring adjustment to credit either of the dates.

It looks like the rest of the month is likely to be a small bit colder than normal. I am thinking of the range of -0.5 to -1°C of normal in most areas. Maybe a greater risk of snow if you live on high ground and more northerly areas.
