    Commonly known as a land breeze. Apart from possible surface winds changing direction due to buildings/land interference, it is most likely a land breeze. These do prefer to happen at night as the inland temperature gets colder, plus with the slack NW winds atm it'll not be hindered. The winds increase somewhat later tonight, enough to stop the land breeze from happening. 

    I might add also that wind divergence can cause unusual surface wind directions, although it is more likely to cause sinking air, fog, etc.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge Weather Watcher....very well explained and easy to understand .....it is nice for us weather geeks to learn how these things work....

    Right, tomorrow is planned. We're rising early, and if the snow (as expected) hasn't given us enough to play in (my lads are snow starved) then we're heading to higher climates and we're building a sn

    I’m disappointed with the snow here today but not as disappointed as my wife will be tomorrow with her valentines present 😬

    It's now snowing. Light enough, but a dusting is now accruing. Radar looks like it could sustain for a while. Will report back in a half hour and may take the dog out for a ramble if it peps up! There

    It's no problem at all. I am a weather geek too. All the information I got was from my interest in meteorology and there's a great learning section on these forums for it. I'm good at explaining it, but not so good at the mathematical side of it. I love maths, but never divulged in anything beyond GCSE maths.

    I wouldn't say expert 😅 But yes, miss my old "The watcher" account. I no longer use or have access to the email address associated with that account and can't remember the password. Otherwise I would prefer it so all the old users recognise it's me lol.

    Looks like more organised bands moving into Lietrim, Sligo, Donegal and maybe Derry. Showers becoming more hefty too. Might help them breach further inland before fading. 

    Fingers crossed for a surprise trough.

    Hopefully some of this is heading my way. Anything that falls will stick it’s frozen hard out there.

    I'm right here!  I think I may aswell give up on chances of snow 😆

    It's absolutely freezing here, do have elevation. I'm about 100 m up but just need the moisture.

    Currently -1.2c under clear skies. Some decent showers on the radar but will be a long shot to get and as far as my location.

    Wouldn't expect anything this night, maybe the odd isolated skiffle of dandruff should any showers make it all the way across.

    Tomorrow night is interesting due to a frontal system. An area of milder air associated with it, though not terribly milder. Still 850hpa uppers of -3/-4. Dewpoints upto 2c near the Dublin coast but 0 or less inland. Certainly worth a watch still.

    GFS shows the milder sector oushing through 3am to 6am.

    I was starting to worry I was too close to the coast but at last it’s stuck. Couple of centimetres in that last fall

    Could be a decent covering in the morning. These heavy snow showers are passing at 1 every half hour since after tea time.....
