    Didn't take long for the snow to melt. Not a pick left this morning.

    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 😬

    Just tested the cat out in his new backpack. Ground control to major tomcat. 😅

    I read somewhere that when dew points temperatures are high, snow will melt quicker than in direct sunlight. 

    At 5pm yesterday my air temp was 2C and snow was mostly intact, by 9pm snow was all gone and temp was 4-5C with very little rainfall.

    Much milder feel to the weather today .....next week looking mild also .....looks like it will be late Feb or March before next cold shot, if it comes  ....things can change quickly so maybe later in the week we will see models picking up a new route to cold ....

    Very true. In direct sunlight snow acts as a reflector of heat radiation. Surface temperature and dew points have a much bigger impact.

    Met Éireann

    Wednesday night: Some uncertainty for Wednesday night as a low pressure system is indicated to move up from the south bringing widespread rain with a risk of flooding in places along with some strong winds. There is the possibility of some sleet and snow falls too. Lowest temperatures of 0 to 3 degrees.

    Met Eireann still going for sleet and snow in places tomorrow night but mainly for higher ground .....temps back up to 7 to 9 c on Thursday

    Gorgeous day out there today! 12 degrees and blue skies. Kids out playing in the garden for the first time in an age! I love snow and cold, but that is priceless!

    Yes will be interesting to see what they're saying tomorrow. Won't last long even if it does snow but always nice to see.

    On lunchtime weather forecast that northern western parts of Ireland to get some sleet with snow on high ground from frontal feature tonight. Very transient though so not much by way of snow cover likely. Cold rain for northeast, milder wet & very windy elsewhere.

    Snow accumulated in parts of Cork,Kerry and Limerick last night. Not sure what fell overnight here but there was zilch this morning.

    That is unusual.....I would have thought northwest would have been favoured......just goes to show that snow can occur even with these current "milder" looking synoptics....possibly chance of a colder spell again by early March based on latest model runs ...one to keep an eye on...winter may not be done with us just yet

    Was just coming in to say that. GFS 12z showed it and it peaked my interest a bit, but ECM showing height rises to our north at the tail end of it's run has drawn me in again!! Something to keep the mind busy with a hobby and away from the doom of modern life!

    Yes very true. Hopefully,  as Rochey said it is a distraction from everything.

    Both 18z GFS runs keeping the early March cold spell theme going......looks like there could be some potent cold uppers available to tap into if it comes off....let's see how this develops over coming says.....2013 and 2018 showed us that March can deliver serious cold, snow and even ice days.....both years also had SSW impacts similar to this year,so  wouldn't rule a potent cold spell out .....

    Feel like I'm talking to myself in here lately!!! A squall line passed through earlier today, temperature went from 10.0 down to 3.5 degrees in about 5 minutes, and in the heaviest fall, there was snow and hail in the mix. It's wild out there now!

    Was really fed up having no outside temp readings. Spotted this in the bargain bin in Lidl. Can’t really go wrong for £10.40 I suppose.
