Snow/sleet REPORTS - 23/11/2010 onwards

I'm going to open this thread now just to try and keep the forecasting dicussion about the upcoming wintry spell separate from the actually reports. As things get colder and reports become more plentiful i will try and open a new thread for reports every day so that things don't get to clustered.

Post any reports of snow/sleet/hail or any other current weather reports relevant to the cold spell here.

ps Don't forget to add your location to your profile (or post where you are reporting from) so people know where you are

We've had a few heavy hail showers here in Letterkenny, had a bit of sleet mixed in this morning but its just been rain & hail since then.

(just a request. When posting here could you actually state location. I and I'm sure others follow this on my mobile and the mobile version doesn't show a posters location. Thanks 67 )

Yep thats Kippure alright.
It had large patches of snow last year from december right through to early April. It was great for snowboarding on until mid march.
Im hoping for something similar to happen this year. It should go white this weekend and fingers crossed should stay that way till march

Cool, planning on goin up there with the lidl snow boards as soon as they are on sale ( hopefully soon enough! )

And just checked , kippure is roughly 740 m asl... so id say its around 0 o C up there if im correct?

Yeah its 757m officially. So roughly 5 degrees colder up there. Maybe 6c because the city tends to be warmer than countryside too. It could be 6c and raining in Dublin and snowing on top of Kippure. All depends on the upper temps too though.
This is a thread from last year about snow in wicklow.

You can see the patch that built up during the cold spell, that didnt melt till April. Its the most accessible high mountain near Dublin I reckon.

Just in the middle of a sleet shower at the moment here in Fermanagh. Can clearly see little bits of ice on the window. Totally unscientific car thermometer showing 7 C.

Reports beginning to come in of falling snow in Northeastern England down to low levels.

Mountains apparently had a few inches last night.

Im not too knowlegable about snowsports equipment. I got that lidl board purely for snow in Ireland though cause it was cheap enough. I had snowboard boots already which cost as much as the board.
Maybe check the snowsports forum, for good 2nd hand prices.
I got my boots off this place http://www.irishsnowboards.com
Might have some decent boards there too.
