It was a case of a winter wonderland in parts of the Upper Mulkear Catchment early this morning and much of yesterday.Looking north in the Upper Mulkear Catchment (Image: Ruairí Ó Conchúir)
The short cold snap yesterday brought snow to the Upper Catchment for the first time this year. Snow accumulations were minimal and in the lower lying sections of the catchment the snow melted almost immediately.

As February 2014 rolls on, the snow of yesterday has been short lived and has been replaced by wind and the rain. The temporary winter wonderland in the upper Mulkear catchment has today been replaced by storm conditions and the water levels throughout the catchment are again on the rise.
