Turning much colder, frost and some sleet/snow esp North and West April 25th ==>

hi, Hi, HI all again!

Sunday night is interesting atm for any potential snowfall which could be anywhere really but most likely in the north and west.

A real shift in reverse gear over the weekend (from Saturday night) from what we have had the last few weeks as it becomes more unsettled but much, much colder too as the winds come directly from the pole. At night frosts will return and even icy patches.

Temperatures falling back to mid single figures during daylight hours and sub zero for most overnight for the second half of the weekend and early next week away from windward coasts.

Take care and wrap up well

Isn't it beautiful?



More tomorrow...

I'm sure the specifics will change but gfs is currently pushing for a fairly major snow event in many parts on Sunday night. Right, that's that jinxed now 😆

This is typical GFS cold-bias output, as other models are showing nowhere near as cold. The flow originates near the pole but will divert southwestwards around Iceland and stagnate for 24 hrs before finally reaching Ireland in a greatly modified state. The ECMWF shows T850 -4 to -6 at best at the coldest hours on Tuesday morning, so maybe some sleet on mountains for a narrow window but really just cold rain and a marked cooling for 99% of the population.

We have acquired definitions of "hot" in Ireland


I wouldn't be so quick to rule anything in or out. If anything UKMO and ECM have moved more toward the GFS output so definitely some potentially interesting weather ahead.

Be fun seeing people adapt though from T-shirts to Eskimo fashion.

I did not like MT's parting shot for Ireland in this morning's forecast;

"There are indications of a prolonged spell of rather cold weather following on, with the average about 4 degrees below normal values on guidance for the first half of May."

It's the northern half of the country most at risk from any snowfall on Sunday night though the precise area is fluid. After Monday the snow risk abates but temperatures look to remain low for the week with night time frosts again a feature.
