Late November/Early December 2010 Cold Spell Temperature Watch

If OK with the mods to open this thread to so we can focus on the actual temperatures (rather than snow and weather) during this exceptionally cold spell of weather. Basically just to keep a hard record of temperatures recorded across the country, where they be official or from personal weather stations.


Temps at Met Eireann stations over the last 24hrs up to 12 utc today:

Grab of 12.00pm met eireann station reports for the 28th November:

According the Evelyn Cusack just now on the 'Farming Weather' on RTE One. temps this morning broke records, with the lowest ever November min temperature recorded in the East!

Exceptional times!

excellent thread paddy1. as you say it is truly exceptional. how is that time machine coming along? i'd certainly like to revisit this cold period in the future- say when we are being plauged by mild south westerlies with temperatures in mid- to high teens.

It is coming along great Nacho, in fact, unbeknowst to you and everyone in the country, I actually transported us back to the 17th Century. Unfortunely, wider culture did not come along due to a glitch which means we still appear to be in the present without actually being in it. Must work on that!

Still below freezing in many inland areas.

Went down to -7C at Killygordan near here at the NRA station, think thats as cold as it got here.

It really is unbelievable though, even at the depths last winter I dont remember it being anything close to -5C in the middle of the day

I think we can safely say that we have just experienced one of the coldest November days on record with a certain 'ice day' in many places inland. Temps beginning to plummet once again now - down to -3.0c here locally and even lower in the midlands. Will be interesting to see if temps later on tonight and tomorrow morning will get as low as they did last night.



Edit: Another record broken??? Current number of people viewing the weather forum:

Hey Su, where do you get those precise figures from? Are they publically available?

Fairly steady in the midlands but falling elsewhere.

Ogimet. Select Latest Synops, choose Ireland.

The temperature is in the 1XXXX group (red) and the dewpoint is in the 2XXX group (blue)

The last 3 digits of each is in tenths of a degree, and the 2nd digit is 0 for positive and 1 for negative.

So in the one below the temperature is -5.8°C and the dewpoint is -5.9°C.

The 3 group is station pressure, the 4 group is sea level pressure, 5 group pressure tendency, etc.
