Cold Spell & Snowfall Discussion Tuesday/Wednesday (5/6 January 2010)

Heavy snow likely to fall in the north and northwest during through till early Evening.

>10cm in places.

Winds to veer Northeast this afternoon and towards nightfall.

Heavy snow showers pushing onto the east coast from 6pm.

Accumulations significant in places. (5-15cm)


Snow risk continues overnight and through Wednesday in the east and north coast, while things dry up gradually in the west as winds veer ENE at first.

Turning drier everywhere Friday/ Saturday with just scattered wintry showers. Some really deep frosts and lows perhaps below -10c.

Staying bitterly cold past the weekend.

Weathercheck, am I wrong in thinking the winds are Northeasterly at the moment ?

It looks like that from the radar images

we've had snow here overnight. haven't been out to look yet, but doesn't look like a huge amount. roads are dodgey enough in places, but gritting has been a lot better this time.

If we get even some of the falls predicted by others later on today it could get nasty pretty quick. Bear in mind though I'm right out on the coast, and that may have had some bearing on things

About 1cm has fallen in Sligo town in the past hour.

There was even a bit at home, very little, before I left for work and OH says it was coming down there too after I left, which is the first since before Xmas.

Yes they've gone light NNE here in the past few minutes.

DP and air is rising though.

There was a very light dusting in Southwest Mayo last night, yesterday evening was the mildest night in two weeks due to the NW breeze off that (relatively) warm warm Atlantic. Heavy clouds are now visible in the far Northeast over the Newport area.

Beautiful clear sky in Lucan at the moment.
Temperature currently reads -2C.
We had a small dusting of snow last night and it was enough to make the roads in the housing estates treacherous again.

There is a small circulation around North Wales.

NW winds to the south of it, NE winds above it.

Ya, it's throwing it down here now, gets heavier every time I look out the window - this has the makings of a serious dumping!
