  1. Castlederg in the extreme West of NI is the closest weather station to me. The depth and length of cold was exceptional. 211 consecutive hours below freezing between 17-26 December. Of that 187 hours were continuously below -5. Multiple days didn't get above -10. -11 was coldest daytime high. -11.3 was the record set close by. A new record for NI of -18.7c was set at Castlederg. On the day the cold spell started I remember it raining and quickly turning to snow and icy as it cleared. Heavy persistent beefy snow showers followed on and off for the next 24 to 36 hours. No snow after t
  2. Model output is a yawn fest. At this time of the year I look for snow as most on here do. If not that I'm content with sunny and frosty weather and at least if its zonal you always have the chance of a windstorm to keep interest. These never ending euro heights just lead to mundane nothingness. I get plenty of rain with them but no real high wind potential. Worst of all scenarios. If climate change means this pattern persisting and becoming ever more frequent during Winter then god help us lol. I feel as if it is.
  3. Looks nice. Equals loads of rain without any real threat of a windstorm for my location so just mundane, mild and wet. The chart posted above sadly confirms it ha.
  4. I didn't check models for a couple of days. Northern blocking looks dead in the water. Oh well.
  5. Malin head average wind 57mph gust 80mph
  6. Getting windier here. Updated TAF predicting 78mph over the next couple hours at Donegal airport.
  7. Alarm as Arctic sea ice not yet freezing at latest date on record | World news | The Guardian WWW.GOOGLE.COM Delayed freeze in Laptev Sea could have knock-on effects across polar region, scientists say For the first time since records began, the main nursery of Arctic sea ice in Siberia has yet to start freezing in late October. The delayed annual freeze in the Laptev Sea has been caused by freakishly protracted warmth in northern Russia and the intrusion of Atlantic waters, say climate scientists who warn of possible knock-on effects across the polar region.
  8. Bad news for Everton fans The FA say Jordan Pickford will face no retrospective action following the Everton FC v. Liverpool FC fixture on Saturday [17/10/20] as the incident was seen by the match officials at the time.
  9. There will be no difference to summer. Once the clocks go forward again in March that's it.
  10. Liverpool looking frail at the back now. Never replaced lovren, van dijk out for a long time. Gomez and Matip both injury prone. Fabinho can play at CB but he's also injury prone and playing out of position there. Window opens on Jan 1st. I think Liverpool may revert back to all out attack under klopp like they used to before they bought Allison. The team is stronger now than then so who knows. Anyway their games will more than likely have more goals going forward bar Villa game ha.
  11. I guess it just comes down to personal preference. I'd rather the extra hour of brightness in the evening as I find them depressing. Its dark when I wake up anyway so 1 more hour of it being dark then doesn't bother me. I still go out in the middle of winter in late afternoon/evening. The extra hour will give more people the opportunity to do so if they wish.
  12. This will be the last time I put the clock back and I'm happy about that. An extra hour of brightness in the evening will be great. Kids can play outside for a bit when they get home instead of total darkness when they get back home. Living close to NI it will be interesting having two different time zones on the island.
  13. I've had some air frosts since September but I've found the weather to be boring. Ideally I'd like some windstorms in autumn but absolutely nothing. Pretty bland all round.
