Weather thread

Indeed, this is true. I think I mentioned it earlier in the thread too, however, there were other weather drivers in place that would ordinarily have meant the deep cold would have effected us to a much larger extent. If you’re bored and have a few hours to spend, google QBO, mountain torque, Rossby waves and MJO… And if you understand them all, can you come back and explain them to me! :rofl:

Take care heading home anyone travelling on sunday, looks like could get quite stormy later in the day after potentially very heavy rain earlier.
Worst of the wind looks like could be in the Midlands and East after 6pm.
Potential for a cold, wintery snap next week, some sleet or even snow in places, some icy roads early/at night.


#2301

Forecasts now downgrading that storm warning for Ireland today. Some heavy rain but it might be clearing by the time the game starts. Lighter winds should prevail. It will be cold though and folks might see some sleet/wet snow before the rain clears.


#2302

We have had rain sleet and snow falling simultaneously earlier. Wet snow now.


#2303

And now proper snow but not a chance of it sticking


#2304

Yes, it’s just transient and will stop by tonight. There will be some big accumulation on high ground though. Wicklow will be very pretty later!


#2305

hard to do it.justice in a pic but it’s pelting down and sticking

Hearing of match cancellations in Munster South Leinster in the hurling.


#2306

Cork. Two grounds both unplayable.


#2307

Snowing quite heavily now in the north county. Actually sticking a bit despite the wet ground.


#2308

Snowing and sticking here in Glasnevin north/ Ballymun/ finglas east ( have to keep all happy).


#2309

You forgot about Beneavin, Popintree & Ballygalls East & West.

The UN Peacekeeping Council will be having words mate.

Edit: Never mind about Popintree. No one cares about them.


#2310

Snowing here in the real Glasnevin as well.:snowman_with_snow:


#2311

Really?

Go stick yer head out of the side door of The Autobahn so & see if it’s sticking.

Cheers. :+1:


#2312

If this keeps.up - still.snowing here - and we have a frost too then the morning here will be mental and dangerous. M7 and M8 already closed this afternoon.


#2313

What do you mean closed?


#2314

Not open?


#2315

Was out in nass this afternoon. Drove home about 5. Roads in a jocker and miles of tailbacks, few fire engines and ambulances heading out the M7.


#2316

Beeko!!! I meant is traffic banned from using them or is the snow too bad so people are avoiding them?


#2317

:joy:


#2318

Closed. Closed.
