  1. Second half of April was extremely cold in Europe
  2. Some pics from nearby Ski Areas in Slovakia, Zdiar - Hight Tatras,cca 45cm, Mlynky-Slovak Paradise 40cm, from this morning.
  3. Just wanted to share some events from Central Europe from today,as there is 20cm of snow lying in parts of Bratislava at the moment,nearly being the coldest part of the whole Northern Hemisphere at the moment! That being preceded after coldest January in since 1987,all trees in bloom,hard frost expected on Friday,can kiss goodbye to all the fruit crop like Apples,Cherries etc. Truly exceptional, had to share,lol
  4. The cold air is starting to come down from north as soon as Monday AM, Ireland is about to become the coldest spot in Europe appart from Norway,for once, well appart from July and August of course,heh
  5. Cold block in place in Europe,let's see if it can fight of the Atlantic,I think the chances are slightly better then usual the more east you are, it is frustrating from the perspective of Ireland that we have completely missed out on this exceptional cold spell in Europe,which even rivals some famous from 80s and 2009 where even we managed to get a slice of the Cold and snow cake, the map attached highlights my point, let's see what February brings.
  6. This is just to lighted up the mood while 18z is trickling along,mods feel free to delete if off topic. Just want to prove how even a medium term forecast can go horribly wrong, this is one of the most respected senior forecaster in Slovakia showing his views ahead for first few weeks of January towards the end of December(pict1), on picture 2 is a snapshot of real time temperature on the 8th January at 8AM, he was only about 30 degrees adrift! A travesty as they just had their coldest spel since January 1987!
  7. Here we go Seasonality,it is also a mild outlier for my home location in Slovakia
  8. HI Seasonality, I have checked the most recent ECMWF run fron this morning for my location - Roznava,Slovakia which is about 100kg south of Polish border and the main run is at the very top of Ensembles so actually its very good news as the mean is at least 3 degrees colder and some go very low indeed which will probably be good news for Poland and rest of Central Europe, see Image attached
  9. It's quite depressing seeing British Isles in such a mild air in the worst possible time,certainly not a festive feeling at all,perhaps the best fitting chart I found is for next Friday courtesy of latest GFS output,cold to the west,bitter to the east and UK plus 6 uppers,
  10. Just for fun,this is GFS ensemble mean temp.anomaly,latest run for Christmas eve. Ireland and UK are by far the mildest places of similar latitude,to choose 1 day per year when I want snow and cold this is it

  12. Well don't worry,we don't deserve the title anyway because the pathetic MetEirrean can not put an official weather station where should, I swear if I ever see such similar synoptics arising I will buy a weather station,put in there and share results here
  13. Minus 4.3 already on N81 Baltinglass according to NRA! Once again over a degree colder than anywhere in republic, its a shame there is no official weather station nearby as I strongly believe it would have recorded all time low in December 2010 easily beating Castlederg co.Tyrone, snowcover was deeper there and mountains higher around there then Castlederg
  14. Minus 3.1 on N81 Baltinglass,as usual the coldest place according to NRA website, it was -3.6 earlier the freezing fog traps the cold air that decends down from Wicklow mountains,it was 3 degrees warmer earlier on top of Wicklow gap then down here in Hollywood village which stayed below freezing all day, probably first time since 2010!
  15. Snowing in Dublin 24
