  1. Great surprise. Absolutely chucking it down here!!! Already a cm or 2 layer everywhere
  2. Is it just me or has the movement North slowed down significantly? Just 10 miles south of Omagh haha!! Would be interesting to see what is falling in Enniskillen area. Any reports of snow in other areas of Ireland?
  3. Haha @Sparky72 has to be done. Sitting at my office desk struggling to get motivated to do work. Doesn't help with this front approaching! To be fair, if you run through the radar sequence the intensity of precipitation isn't great. Would be good to squeeze a wee bit more falling snow.
  4. It's still moving north anyway. See radar below from 9.40am to 10.40am. Looks like it will be hitting a Omagh in next half an hour or so. Plus it's a good bit further north on its Western most flank. Am I right in thinking once it stops moving north it will stall and slide SE?
  5. Stole this from another page...Hirlam showing precipitation moving much further north than expected.
  6. Here lads, that front is pushing much farther north than I was expecting. It's already reached Enniskillen and much further north over it's most westerly point in Donegal. How long before it stalls and pivots? If it keeps moving north at it's current rate it could reach me! Keep coming baby!!
  7. Met office just issued new warning for ice into this evening and an increased chance of further wintry showers tomorrow morning. Great wee spell this is! https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/mobile/warnings#?id=c2155b94-fc6a-4773-80b8-ceeb0c1283c9&details&referrer=app&date=2019-01-30
  8. Good 2-3 inches in loughmacrory. Not as much here in Omagh at work but at least 2-3cms. Heavy shower that hit Derry is just moving in here now!
  9. Omagh in the tunnel of death at the minute but look to NW, there's significant showers forming in the gap that's gave us nothing. Keep the faith my Tyrone Brethren!! Meanwhile, I called with my mate for half an hour in Dromore. The fact they were under a streamer didn't influence my decision at all. Soem difference for 9 miles up the road.
  10. Don't think that streamer is moving in that exact. Direction. Think there's more of a SSE flow so it won't all trail over Fermanagh. Looks great all the same!
  11. Looks like the line of showers moving in from NW is holding (if not strengthening) it's intensity as it moves inland
  12. stained glass window it anyway...the northern arm of those showers is dying off big time. Hopefully the showers further north start blowing in a more. Southerly direction! Fermanagh looks to be the sweet spot so far. Was a lot of snow lying around Maguiresbridge when I passed through earlier
  13. @Mixer 85 had to be done haha Looks like next batch of heavy snow heading a bit further north and should be a direct hit on the Omagh area. Snowing nicely here in Omagh now too.
  14. Been down in Kinnegad Westmeath at work today. Huge snow going down the road and stopped in Lisnaskea on way home to video this. Huge snow falling and pile more heavy showers moving into NW now!!
  15. @Weegaz it's proper fat big flakes out here. Very heavy too.
  16. Driving to westmeath for work today. Here's Fivemiletown in Tyrone. Heavy snow moving into the west now. Keep the faith, it's getting colder and showers WILL be snow!!
  17. No snow in Omagh area yet...although there's a tasty bunch of heavy wintry precipitation less than 15 mins away with back up in the wings.
  18. Haha alright then...honestly would be extremely surprised if no deal will be allowed to happen. My thoughts on the way forward are: 1. Delay on Brexit day 29th March for 3 months or so. 2. An eventual return to an NI only backstop (this was the original deal in Dec 2017). This will clearly cut off the DUP but may garner enough cross party support to compensate their loss. Also allows GB to have the trade independence the ERG crave. 3. May steps down as leader before the end of 2019 (part of the deal with tory back benches) and at some stage an early y general election called with a new tory leader.
  19. Big Marco replied back to me on twitter...dodged any real insight into their thoughts. I wonder is there a slight dig at chief forecaster as in if you get snow don't blame me! Haha
