Snow Risk for North and East - 04 March

Due to popular demand, a new thread for snow risk in the early hours of tomorrow morning, mainly for Ulster and Leinster.

ME Weather Warning:

Snow-ice Warning for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal
Cold tonight with some frost and icy patches. Some sleet and snow showers at times too, especially on high ground, but there is also a risk at lower levels, with possibly between 1 and 3 cm locally. Parts of Ulster and Leinster are most at risk later tonight.

Issued:Thursday 03 March 2016 11:00
Valid:Friday 04 March 2016 00:01 to Friday 04 March 2016 10:00

met.ie Regional forecast for Connacht:

Cold and frosty overnight with with icy stretches as temperatures fall to between 0 and -2 degree Celsius. Most of the night dry but some scattered showers will continue to affect western areas. Towards dawn outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow will spread southwards over the province.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow will be a cold day with further outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow during the morning;

Ah maybe we can squeeze a dusting out of this.

Thanks Docarch, had to go out for a few hours.

I think most of ulster & leinster will see some snow early tomorrow, but being such a similar setup to yesterday I don't think it will be cold enough to stick away from high ground.

PPN looks very light, not great to get evaporating cooling to help things accumulate.


Dublin /wicklow mountains will fair best id say for any accumulations.


Heres what it was like up at 3 Rock yesterday morning

Looking at the BBC forecast i wouldn't be to hopeful of much snow falling here.
Might be some frost beforehand so whatever falls may stick unlike Tuesday night.

Just watched the bbc weather forecast on their website.
It looks like the best or worst affected areas with snow will be Dublin, meath,
Kildare, Wicklow, Carlow and north wexford.
All predicted forecast of course.
