  1. Radar looking interesting. Hoping that blob reaches East Belfast and then sits there for hours.
  2. Thankyou. Unfortunately not so good for me. Hey ho.
  3. I can't see which one is latest. Both are equally good depending where you live!!!
  4. No lying snow for me either, just a few flurries. These weather models are just all talk and no show! Still time though....
  5. It's not over yet Negative Nelly! Anything could happen. I can remember the forecast for 21st of March 2013 being mediocre and look what happened on the day here on the East coast......
  6. Not a snowflake lying or falling in East Belfast. Sob.
  7. Cut and paste from Metalert Ireland in Facebook just now. Hope they are right SEVERE WEATHER WARNING TIMELINE: MON 26TH FEB TO SAT 3RD MARCH + AREA: NATIONWIDE HIGH RiSK AREA: LEINSTER, EAST ULSTER, N TO E MUNSTER We continue to urge the public to call in on elderly/vulnerable neighbours and ensure they are aware of the severe cold and severe weather outlook over the course of the coming 7 or more days. Ensure fuel, food and medication stocks last a minimum of 7 days. We have upgraded our advisory from 70% risk to 100% risk of severe weather with severe disruption likely in high risk areas mentioned above. Daytime weather values will gradually get colder with Tuesday to Sat the highest risk days of disruption. Highest temps will remain sub zero in many areas by day with areas under snow cover seeing even colder temps of -3c to 0c. Nighttime values will see lows of -4c to -10c with coldest values where snow cover exists. Where no snow cover exists temps will range by day 4c to 1c. The windchill factor by mid week through to Saturday will be exceptionally cold with feel like values ranging from -5c to -12c by day in a brisk easterly wind. In terms of snow and accumulations we expect between 5cm to 10cm daily from Tuesday through Saturday but this will depend on your location and due to the nature of sea streamers it will be a nowcast situation and these approx amounts are only a daily guideline of what to expect and are subject to change at short notice. We will begin to roll out individual advisories for each day from Sunday (tomorrow) evening. Lastly its essential our pets are kept indoors during the coming week. We are aware that government bodies (OEP, HSE, DOD, DOH)) and several charities have plans in place for our homeless citizens. Check with your local TD(s) for further information. Lastly continue to monitor your national and local weather forecast over the coming 7 days as this is an evolving weather situation and will be subject to change even at very short notice. Make sure your home/business is winter ready before Monday evening. NOTE: This cold weather outbreak could last well beyond next weekend. #SEVEREWEATHER #IRELAND #TAKEACTION
  8. What's does this show and for what date please?
  9. Please share a picture, I'd love to see Vic Park like that. I've only ever seen a thin layer of ice there. I walk the dogs and run there regularly.
  10. I am wondering how warnings work for NHS and other vital Workers. I work for NHS in community and do on call day and night. In March 13 a lot of my colleagues struggled to reach their patients for days, some of our work is life critical. Whilst I'm aware no one wants to call it too soon, and even if it doesn't happen, it would be good to be on standby. A very worthwhile exercise is to discuss what to do if roads are unpassible, which I did with my team members today who all said 'but the Belfast Telegraph said....!' if current model output continue I'd like to see something like the current public health warning provided by the MET extended to NI....
  11. Snowydog my good friend lives not a million miles from you. One bad spell her car was trapped in her cul de sac for over a week. The cul de sac is down in a dip and other people had abandoned their cars as they too couldn't get out. I'd personally plan ahead and buy a few wee extras in like tinned goods that won't go to waste, some UHT milk and extra bread for the freezer and wine!!! At least that's one thing that you wouldn't have to worry about if we did get a good dumping.... you can just sit back and lamppost watch instead!
  12. Can someone please summarise chart outputs today. It was my mothers birthday and I had her and her fellow widow chum out for day to Newcastle, exhausted! Who would have thought a day trip with 70-80 year old so exhausting! I have no energy left to read Model thread.....
  13. I'm always prepared (too much scout blood in me apparently)..... and I only live in Belmont! I am concerned about my recently widowed mum and elderly aunt who live separately in the country outside Lisburn. I think I might say something to them today to ensure they have enough coal, oil and food in.
