The colder air was quite noticeable in Mayo this morning. Plenty of bright blue skies but some really well defined and impressive shower clouds coming in from the west that were nicely illuminated by the morning sun. A bit of a wintry dusting on Nephin and some of the other higher peaks. I could also see plenty of white glistening in the morning sunshine along the tops of the Sheaffry mountains way off in the distance.

All of the showers are bypassing me. Thankfully the wind will turn NW tonight when the colder air comes in, and the rest of us will get a chance after Donegal stops hogging it all.

Anyway not sure how low level areas are recording snow yet as wet bulbs are very high. The main snow risk will be tonight after 8pm.

Spoke too soon very heavy graupel here, despite a 2c wet bulb temperature odd. Temperature dropping rapidly 2.9c

Bodes well for tonight.



I wonder if there are heavy downdrafts? Hence the snow at positive dew points at wet bulb temps?

If I can't have heat then this is my next favorite weather, deep blue skies interrupted by black high level convective showers, the cold is somewhat tempered during the sunny periods. Heat from the sun inside he house is unreal

heavy hail here just now. So far netweather has all showers green and some pink bits in between. Therefore very few rain showers

Yes which his odd given that these conditions would normally yield rain.

temperature fell from 5c down to 2c and then back up to 5c before after that heavy hail shower that just passed through South Galway, more action out in the Atlantic, seems to be taking it's time to reach the coast

Yeah definitely the heavy showers pulling colder air down. Showers are starting off as hail/sleet here but transitioning to graupel then full on snow on the back edge

Edit: 'Dinner plates' here now!

That is the warm sector that I mentioned. Colder air will return after 6pm.. with a greater chance of low level snow.
