  1. It is only the 14th of Feb and with semi reliable FI, from an overall trend perspective, only going out to about 10 days anything could pop up come the 24th. I seem to remember a recent, not so successful from a cold return POV, SSW that dragged on for months bringing below average temperatures all the way right through May. I suspect more cold is to come.
  2. I’d like give a quick random thumbs up to the mods if I may. As a long term reader only I’m finding the model discussion thread over the past few weeks a much more palatable feast of michelin star posts without the side order of blue cheesy trolling snipes. Great job, well done. Nuff said 😉
  3. I’ve reported this post for being way too excellent, as a lurking layman these kinds of posts are pure gold 🎅🏻
  4. There might be some of this for y’all so, lovely fist sized flakes hammering down now.
  5. My neighbors arent liking this weather either, I’m out weeding the garden but it’s too warm for shorts.
  6. ? Look, everyone knows getting a decent cold snowy spell in these parts is nigh on impossible in any given winter. Hope casting to me isn’t even a derogatory term, it describes those members who are genuinely searching with hopeful optimism for the elusive white gold. The naysayers that prod and jibe at others in here might be right 80% of the time past day ten but even in failure it’s 100% more fun and rewarding being a Jedi.
  7. Aww, I was contemplating liking the first edit, oh well.
  8. It’s only weather to normal people, noone hanging around in here is normal ?
  9. Is that an indication of the high ridging north, the western edge winding the low up like a spinning top keeping the low in situ?
  10. Met Eireann 11:04 Update: "Thursday remains very uncertain but current indications suggest it will start cloudy in most areas with a band of rain spreading from the southwest. The rain possibly turning to snow as it pushes northeastwards but there is a lot of uncertainty in relation to this feature at the moment. It will be very cold with temperatures of just 3 to 6 degrees. Frost and ice will develop on Thursday night along with further wintry showers." Not a wholly inspiring update but you never know. Anyone on higher ground in the heavy precip zone are looking good for a day off wo
  11. The infinitely complex interaction of macro drivers will always keep FI at 4-5 days followed by flip flopping ensemble chaos from run to run, especially if your focus is on the pimple that is the UK and Ireland from a global perspective. My point is winter is NOT over just yet, yes we need a huge slice of luck in the next couple of weeks but no one can deny that there’s always a chance. Feb91, March18 did actually happen.
  12. The lads letting off the balloons today might come up with a different outlook later on, the chances may be low to zero point zero one but hey, chin up old boy eh.
  13. Is the downwelling data entered into the model algorithms manually or how does that work? I don't know what percentage the models rely on historically analogous set ups/data sets to produce their runs (massive overly simplified I know!) but being as rare an event as it is I would have thought a trop downwelling would cause absolute model chaos! Models flipping within 24 hours where over-stating even the smallest variable would effect T-12 never mind T-144 and beyond. Was the failed beast last week a victim? Are we all victims? Why do I care??? I'm now lying down...
  14. Yeh snowing away nicely in Amsterdam as well. https://balticlivecam.com/cameras/netherlands/amsterdam/dam-square/ I lived there for 2 years recently without a flake of snow.. send me to Russia in a box and you'll all be guaranteed 2 foot plus ?️
