  1. The Met office used to be a lot better at warnings. Like last Friday night for instance they had none, I'm close to the border and had 2 inches of snow, know across the border had snow laying too as I was there. Years ago they would have released a flash warning for such a thing if they didn't have a advisory before hand, they didn't. Met Éireann had the warning for up to 5cm of snow for most of previous day.
  2. Sleeting outside now was rain 20 minutes ago. Went for a wee drive up the road was snowing proper at about 120m asl
  3. I wouldn't like to call what will happen. Last Friday night the Met office had no warning yet I had over 2 inches of snow. Met eireann did. We'll have a better idea tomorrow
  4. Nice update from met office " Outlook for Saturday to Monday: Cloudy with outbreaks of rain and perhaps some significnat snow on Saturday, clearing later. Cold, increasingly northerly winds and a few showers Sunday. Milder with rain in the west Monday. I think it's first time I've seen significant and snow in same sentence this year even if it says perhaps. Met eireann also have snow warning for Donegal.
  5. I'm pretty sure the 17th/18th December 2010 was a direct Northerly. I got 1 foot of snow from it in Donegal. End of December 2000 was another potent Northerly. Anyway it's sad times.
  6. Hope they're shivering shortly and barely able to fly in a blizzard
  7. I've noticed the frequency of Northerlies has died down a lot over the years. This confirms what I thought.
  8. Wanted to haha above but they removed it? Seriously looking for some interesting weather be it a storm or snow the monotony is killing me lol.
  9. This Winter is set to be the Mildest ever recorded at many stations in Ireland, incredible, especially given the Background signals . I'm hoping for some colder weather before March is out just to kill some of the insects lol
  10. I posted this in my regional thread but wanted to moan some more ha. I was looking at the Worlds snowiest cities and I'm dumbfounded at this one. 3rd Snowiest city in the world Toyoma Japan, 3.8m of snow. That's 12ft 5.6 inches of snow on average each year. Almost all falls December to March. Now this is the crazy part. Toyoma climate data 1981-2010 December average high 9.6c / low 2.4 / record low -8.4. Average snowfall 22 inches January average high 6c / low -0.1 / record low -11.9c. Average snowfall 63 inches. February average high 6.8c / low -0.3 / record low -11.1c. Average snowfall 49 inches.  March average high 10.9c / low 2.2c / record low -7. Average snowfall 14 inches.  As I'm inland and close to the border with Northern Ireland I checked the Met Office climate data for Northern Ireland 1981-2010. It has a lot of individual stations to check with big differences between coastal and inland however this is the average of all. December average high 7.3c / low 1.7c / record low Castlederg -18.7c January average high 7c / low 1.4c February average high 7.4c / low 1.2c March average high 9.6c / low 2.4c. Now as you can see it's pretty similar average temperature wise. Our averages reflect that the mild SW winds are our predominant wind direction. However from them to receive so much snow yet have such mild averages is mind blowing to me lol. We hit 55° degrees North of the equator, they're a mere 36° degrees North of the equator. Seville in the extreme south of Spain is further North at 37° degrees. It just shows how incredible unfortunate we are when it comes to snowfall. 
  11. Oh jebus. Not seasonal LRF after this busted sofa Winter that never was. Too soon
