Massive clap of thunder in Galway City, I note there's no thread for spring/summer convection?

I'm in North Kildare, current temperature is 0.9c and falling fairly quickly. I see that there a large and fairly heavy shower heading my way in a half hour or so. Will be interesting to see what falls from it!

some very heavy showers in the western half of the country mostly of rain and sleet with some thunder in places.

We've had a dry day in south Meath, although the ground is very wet from all that melted snow.

I have a feeling somewhere in the UK or Ireland will experience an event, similar to the end of March 2013, this spring. Well, i guess if you were up in the Wicklow mountains today you might say it has happened already. There must have been a decent covering up there from yesterdays snow.

Looking like a cold enough march. I've no statistics and I think weather patterns are coincidental, but a fairly nice summer followed the last two cold March's I can remember, 2013 and 2018. Fingers crossed.

Cold Marches have occurred (back to 1969 here from off the top of my head) in:

1969 - A very sunny Summer (broke records for sunshine in Ireland at the time in places) and reasonably warm
1970 - A very warm June (warmest on record before June 2018 for numerous locations) but forgettable otherwise
1975 - Astounding Summer that is forgotten. Hot, dry and sunny
1979 - A poor, unsettled Summer
1985 - Exceptionally wet, dull Summer
1987 - Very dull and cool Summer
1995 (not overly cool but a fair few shots of cold zonality) - Think you know this Summer, need not I say?
1996 - Mentioned this one lots of times before, a fine June with lots of sunshine, mixed July and an average August
2001 - A rather warm and thundery Summer if on the dull side
2006 - Very warm June, hot July but average August
2010 - Warm June, a mild but very wet July and sunny and dry but cool August

Correction on saying this probably being the 4th best snow event of the decade here, forgot about 18 March 2018.
Wasn't there snizzle from a toothless easterly at the start of March 2017 too? Maybe I'm mixing it up with 2016 although I don't think it was 2016. I've been following the forum since winter 2015-16 so it's either March 2016 or 2017 or else I'm imagining.

The only wintriness I remember from March 2017 was March 21st/22nd before a warm spell took off. The 22nd being a very wet and awful day in Dublin, only 5c as a maximum too under all the rain.
