Your humidity reading is plain wrong. Those figures are about 10% too low.

Snow will always fall at 0c dew points regardless of air temp barring a huge wedge of warm air aloft which is not in situ tonight.

I am taking the readings from my weather station, if the readings are wrong how do I adjust it/correct the seting?

Snow started here in NE Donegal @140m, huge snow flakes at first, some 3cm wide, that only lasted a few minutes and now normal snow. Ground wet and only laying on cars at the moment.

Take care on the roads as not only snow but hail, sleet and ice could be present, and conditions could be quite variable with a bit of glaring sunshine not really helping in all cases either, also some gusty winds and thunder possible.

Wednesday of course will be considerably worse especially in the south. Separate thread for that event.
