This was my snowiest December since 2010 in Donegal 35m Asl. Coastal areas here seen next to nothing I'd imagine.
Thursday 7th of December-Showers increasingly turned to snow during evening. I didn't get as much as other areas close by. 2 inches which lay on the ground until Tuesday 12th of December. Not bad for a wishy washy North westerly and especially for a modest amount of snow . There were some snow showers through out this period. Total duration 5 days of lying snow.
Wednesday 13th. Patchy pockets of snow remained locally in some spots. Showers of rain, in the early evening a heavy snow shower lasting 30 minutes gave a slushy deposit which had almost entirely melted within 2 hours.
26th St. Stephens day-Heavy frost early, light snow flurry around 8pm, cars and footpaths white, grass pretty clear. By 11pm was raining and washed away. A couple of hours later 27th- Rain showers turned increasingly wintry ending with a snow shower around 3.30am didn't lay. Barely anything from these two occasions but snow fell nonetheless albeit briefly and tiny amounts.
Late Thursday28th-Heavy frost, after midnight in Friday29th AM a rain band pushing north readily turned to snow. The flakes were huge. Snowed for 2-3 hours. I had to drive during it, 3 inches on the back roads at that time. Milder air pushed in behind it and it melted rapidly but for a few hours it was a freezing winter wonderland.
Friday29th/Sat30th The snow that affected more of the country, it started off as rain just before midnight here and turned to snow within an hour. Snow was much lighter than the previous night. Snowed for 2 hours, just a light covering. Patchy snow cover remained until morning then melted quickly.
Snowiest December I've seen for 7 years. Lots of it was transient but had 5 full days in a row of lying snow and the snow on late Thursday early Friday am was impressive to watch with unusually big flakes.
Tell us how you faired, your location and altitude? Happy new year, hope it's snowy for all.
