I'm liking a good cold spell in April, means when we do get a settled spell the temperatures will be decent.

Yeah I prefer the cool and disruptive weather now. Nearly every year that we receive warm, anticyclonic weather in Spring we're left with a wet and abysmal summer.

Not a hope in Cork with this, Arpege is forecasting 3-4c early in the morning and 9c on Friday for us, Met.ie 2-3 degrees getting up to about 7.

I wouldn't follow Arpege, it seems to be overly warm compared with the other models in most cases. With 850 hPa of -6c, I can't see the freezing level being 900 metres somehow.

ECM shows freezing levels of 300 metres or less in Ulster tomorrow evening, but Arpege says 700m. Lol!!

Looks slightly less cold than before to my untrained eye. A slight shift North on latest GFS. Ulster could still get some sleet and possible snow tomorrow night but the rest of us unlikely.

Or we’ll get cold and disruptive weather now and still get our usual wet and abysmal summer.

Yes but this Spring hasnt been all bad and even the cold weather will include portions of dry weather in it.

Cant be as cold as last Summer in Leinster but CAN be in Connaught. In Sligo we did OK last Summer. Dry until June 26th and 2 good weeks in August. July was wintry though.

Oh meant to be talking about tomorrow night. As my best hope is we get those whitening hailstones so kids can fire bits off roof of car at each other.

Yes Easter cold and potentially first half of April
