Thursday/Friday Snow Potential

Right as it would seem the storm system predicted 3 days ago is looking like trailing through the channel perhaps impacting the south English coast with high winds.

However the result of this is to move a large band of precipitation over the UK and a portion of precip is expected to affect some parts of the southern half of Ireland.

It is possible there could be a period of prolonged snow for those inland of the east coast during Thursday night.


Here is a chart for 9pm



And dew points



Thereafter it will be cold and frosty from Friday through the weekend with harsh frosts and the possibility of some more snow showers particularly in the north.

It's almost set in stone for something white to fall but I wouldn't rule out a change yet



Any more movement south on the system will more than likely result in showery conditions and only the extreme south getting a doucing.

Looks like Dublin is going to miss out on the white stuff. Hopefully it changes slightly

It's a lose lose for Dublin really, the further north the precip goes, the probability of stronger east winds increases and therefore more chance of rain!

Lets hope we can find a mid-point with offshore winds.

tbh I'd be surprised if the Dublin area missed it. Winds would be strong enough to throw in some precip further north

If I could just add, there is a risk of snow this evening and tonight in the western coastal counties from Donegal down to west cork as a weak system pushes in from the Atlantic.

The beaviest preciptation is likely after midnight especially in Clare, Galway, Mayo, and Donegal. Ity is a very marginal setup, however, and any snow is most likely above 100m, 10-15 miles inland.
