Cool overcast breezy morning about as unspringlike as you could hope to find.

Sitting in St Stephens Green and while it's chilly enough, when the sun comes out (which it's doing pretty often), it's really nice and warming. Pretty lovely morning, although the rain clouds are starting to accumulate

Sunny in West Clare, lots of sunny spells this morning, currently 8.1c.

The fields are like lakes though.

Only 1.4mm since midnight.

Kerry /Cork looking very windy tomorrow morning, and a second round of windy weather perhaps in the evening in the W ( other models not showing it as windy in the W in the evening ) EDIT: Clare also looks windy earlier Sun morning according to the ARPEGE with a fast moving area of LP running across the country.

Quick moving frontal rain arriving in the early hours into the SW before moving up over the country. Forecast of wintry weather for a time early in the midlands tomorrow.

Wow!! What year was that? I did not think it was possible to get a temperature that low in March. It would be great to see the charts at the time.

I'm not sure about them as I will have to do some very challenging research to get the answers. But I will do it! In relation to the coldest March day on record (referring to the minimum temperature that JCX BXC posted), here ya go:

Just to add that that -17.1c occurred in Sligo. (Markee Castle)

I'll let Syran deal with the rain stats though in more recent records, the end of March 2010 was quite wet.
