Sleet and snow showers - Thursday to Saturday morning (18th - 20th)

Mainly in the west and north.

Showers turning wintry by dawn this morning. Sleet and snow showers from later this afternoon.

Accumulations likely tonight in the west, north and midlands. 2 - 4 cm generally, more on high ground. Less further east as showers will be lighter, more scattered here.

Always likely to be more mixed in southwest Munster and on immediate windward Atlantic coasts.

Elsewhere some places could remain dry but could also get a dusting pretty much anywhere.

Somewhat less windy than recently so increased risk of icy patches and some frost inland. Overnight lows of -1c - +2c

Rinse and repeat for Friday and Friday night.

Yes they show plenty of white blobs on their radar over Ireland tomorrow. I see Scotland has issued a do not drive warning till dawn tomorrow.
Some people in Scotland and the Northern Ireland might be happy it will get milder after Sunday, but not before another possible frontal snow event.

Met Eireann have a yellow warning for this morning that I don't really understand. I'll leave it to one of the moderators to decide whether to include.

Early afternoon onward is the safer bet.

Wintry showers will give snow accumulations of 0 to 3 cm this morning, mainly on high ground.

Yellow warning for 0cm accumulations!

Criteria for Yellow for Snow:

Quote:
3. Snow/Ice Scattered snow showers giving accumulations of less than 3 cm below 250m AMSL. Slippery paths and roads due to accumulation of ice on untreated surfaces; situation improving.
Met Eireann have been very consistent with their warnings based on the criteria, there is a thread where I can said the criteria may need to change but based on the system in place at present they are being consistent.

Probably wrong side of marginal for Clare. More rain, sleet. Better chance for Limerick though.
