I think I overthought it a bit too much, wondering how dewpoints would react, etc. Or maybe I actually underthought it!

Bitter in Cork tonight. Feels the coldest its been, and two separate thermometers I have in my garden (which usually read the same as Cork airport) says its approx -3.7 at the mo. Moreover, looking on wow.met.ie, there seem to be temperatures from ca. -2 to -6 showing in stations within 30km of me. However, Cork Airport (5km from me) is showing 1c at midnight. Anyone?

Milder air aloft, and that dreaded "marine layer" also. Cork Airport is in a hill so is tapping into that mild sea air.

Most of the low temps across the south are owing to cold pooling and clear skies. At this stage the Atlantic has pushed well across the country at upper levels of the air.

Many thanks. Amazing really as I'm only about 70m lower than it. The -6 is in Bandon which is probably 130m lower than the airport but its only 26km from the airport so 7c is quite the difference.

Actually I see Moore Park is reading -5 at midnight which is how it feels. Also Cork Airport reports its weather as "smoke" - presumably related to that fire in Ringaskiddy earlier. I wonder is that a factor too?

Yes, still enough smog in the air to warrant a warning.

I seen -6c in Bandon, and the height difference would explain that!
