Big Freeze Chat/ Discussion - Colder air returning Today/More Snow - 30/11/2010

Please continue general discussion about the Big Freeze here.

The general pattern for the day will be for the occlusion to push south and west across the country bringing snow inland as it clears away with colder/ Siberian air digging in behind.

Dew points will fall notably across the east during the early Afternoon and it is expected that snow showers and streamers will set up across the East and push a fair way inland during the afternoon and evening. The showers will turn back to snow in the coming hours for all areas and accumulations will begin to re-commence in more coastal areas.

Tuesday night and through Wednesday this theme will continue with snow showers battering the east cost in a brisk breeze. A penetrating frost, both nights. Likely for 10-20cm of snow to have accumulated widely in eastern districts by Wednesday night.

Thanks for new thread.

Light hailstones falling here now in Dublin 4.
Temperature must have dropped as it was raining earlier.
We got very little overnight and a partial thaw had been under way
until now.

I will keep updating through out the day for my location. Don't
have a thermometer though.

By looking at this massive hump on the radar and the direction of streamers behind it, Galway is up to the most snow in years. Around 3-4 cm's now (outskirts, not city center), if this keeps on, 10cm is not impossible.
