  1. Tuesday looking quite good for snow to even low levels for Ireland. Plenty troughs and with thickness sub 528 and uppers nudging -8 we're in with a decent shout of lying snow come Wed morning. It hasn't been a good Winter but you couldn't class February as mild either just a rampant PV I guess....
  2. Worth keeping in mind that eventhough most of us haven't seen lying snow it's hardly been mild the last few weeks. Indeed a continuation of the status quo ( us remaining North of the jet) is the form horse with transient snow cropping up quite a bit South at times! We've about another 3 weeks of Winter potential, let's embrace it before we herald Spring sunshine!
  3. Met Eireann now gone for nationwide Orange for Ireland!!
  4. I'm also surprised in the lack of interest being shown. Quite a bit of wintry potential on offer for next week. Yes it's not perfect but could well be all we get for the Winter!
  5. I think the ecm looks quite okay. Still on track for a cold Northwesterly next Monday. Hill snow quite likely though uppers not as good as gfs. It's nothing special but after the winter sofar I think we'll take it!
  6. But surely Nick heights lowering over Europe is a good sign. I mean we haven't seen this for over 6 weeks. No proper heights to our North but potential is there and we haven't been able to use that word since late November
  7. The cold brought forward on tonight's ECM. All models agree now on a spell of cold weather from next Sunday! The duration still up for grabs.. https://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/ecmwf.php Having said that uppers are not great at 192hrs! Is the gfs over egging how cold the uppers will be?!
  8. Perhaps the ironic benefit of all the cold being locked up over Greenland is Northwesterly's packing a proper punch. At long last maybe a pattern change for month end!!
  9. The 12z gfs is firming up on a potent Northwesterly in a weeks time. Snow for many further West. Will it consolidate into something more prolonged over the next couple of days.....
  10. The trend for a change to a cold Northwesterly in a weeks time remains. Looks quite potent actually for parts of the West and North. Heights are lowering over Europe and as I said yesterday it could yet mark a change to something more notable??
  11. The last few days nearly all the models are trying to bring in something colder from the Northwest towards month end. The trend is constant and with a bit of luck I really do think this change will develop further. The cold over Greenland is proper stuff so a Northwesterly would certainly pack a punch! The long range forecasts were very good this year particularly musings from GP who was adamant that January would remain mild. An update from GP would be very welcome in where he sees February going?! Worth remembering that a lot of our recent Februarys were the coldest month of the whole winter so still time....
  12. Happy new year all!! Charts = no comment lol. At least we all sure of one thing on the Winter so far! The only way is up!!!!?
  13. I would think the Northwest for a pattern reset to kinda where we were a few weeks back with the jet diving South once more only this time the uppers will be that colder! Pure speculation I suppose but I'm around long enough to know things don't stay stagnant for too long!! Today's 180 hours is tomorrows 156!
  14. I think we have to bear in mind that sooner or later a pattern change will occur. I just don't buy the fact that January is a right off other than maybe the first week!! Something will crop up over the next few days to get us out of the current slumber....its been a Christmas to forget weatherwise which of course was identical to last year and indeed many of the last 10!! So let's see where the morning runs go. I sense a change in fortunes is closer than many think ( if only using the law of averages as a theory )
