The Big Thaw 2010

Kilkenny City outskirts..

Temperature: 1.2 °C
Dew Point: 0.9 °C

I'm noticing a slow thaw already today. Temperature has remained above 0°C most of the day and the snow is starting to make a retreat around the edges. Have had sleety rain the last few minutes.

Anyone else experiencing a thaw?

What are the temps there now?
Temp here is 1.2°C still and in comparison to previous nights of -5 plus I don't think it'll drop too much. Might be surprised though. And there could well be some more snow later tonight, but how long will it stay I wonder.
When the rain comes it won't be long going.

But snow and ice melting is a thaw and it will be a big one if it continues.

Nothing yet.

Quick question, is this thaw likely to cause more flooding?

I would say that the quicker the thaw the more flooding there will be. But that's kind of obvious.
There'll probably be some flooding somewhere anyway.

I'm passing through this forum and thought I'd chime in. It's starting to thaw here in Wicklow.

The snow is making a run for it! Just windy at the minute with no snow/rain.

flood? is there really that much snow mounted up?! obvious thaw underway considering how more snow last night than there's been just slid away this morning - may be over 0c but of course even a slight breeze making it feel colder than it was. u know i find it embarrassing it makes the news so much here **** i'm watching ronaldo tear around in a blizzard in Madrid's bernabeu honestly whats the big deal.. maybe it's be snowing in Angola during the African Cup of Nations? reckon i'd just die of the cold in sweden if not boredom i trust its no short-term freak occurance there.. that ice/snow was defo an experience though combined w/ the freezing fog
