Potential Snow Tonight/Thursday Morning (south/midlands/east)

Right just thought i'd start a thread.

This is just a hunch at this point but a developing situation.

Currently a front is developing and representation on the radar improving over the southwest.

As temperatures fall as the night progresses as cold air moves back in from the northwest and nighttime cooling reaches its peak it is more than possible that a period of snow will push northeast through the early hours of the morning.


Look out your window during the early AM tomorrow.

Suggestion of a little snow coming into south Leinster spreading northeast.

Temperatures gradually falling across the country.

Yes, I think snow is likely for a time in the midlands and East this morning given the parameters which are, just about, the right side of marginal. In fact with temperatures at freezing, or a little below, when precip arrives could be a supprise covering. Precipitation could last till 12pm tomorrow on the East coast but clearing most areas during sun rise.

Temperatures need around 1.25c knocked off them in the greater Dublin region (IMBY perspective!) for precip to fall as snow.

Precip holding together reasonably well.
