Winds will continue to be strong tonight particularly in the northeast.
As the evening progresses it will turn notably colder from the northwest with temperatures tumbling to 0-3c overnight.
Most notably dew points will turn lower and remain at 0c or below from around 6pm this evening.
Wintry showers will affect the north and west increasingly turning to snow inland of the coast and on hills.
Towards dawn a organised areas of precipitation will push into the north associated with a shortwave type feature illustrated here to our northwest.
This has the potential to bring more organised snow showers to the northern half of the country towards from early morning to early afternoon.
It is likely some accumulations will take place especially inland and over 100m.
We will use this thread to chat about the impending short cold snap.
