  1. Ireland Regional Weather Discussion

    Plenty of snow up the Sperrins (North Tyrone). The higher peaks of the Derryveagh Mountains on the other side of Donegal had snow too but nowhere else within a 80 mile (approx) radius had the white stuff.

    Never heard of Mullagharan. I'm familiar with Mullaghcarn which is a few miles from Omagh and is the most southerly peak in the Sperrins. The northern Sperrins have a couple of separate peaks called 'Mullaghclogher' and 'Mullaghclogha'. Is Mullagharan definitely a separate hill from Mullaghcarn?
  3. Those maps (and forecasts for the next 7 days) are based on the MOGREPS ensembles and not the UKMO run.
  4. Fading memories of 2010

    That spell brought the most snow I've ever seen by far and after asking an eldery neighbour, she told me the last time she had seen snow as bad as this was the Winter of 47.
  5. I'm just in from work. I left at 915 this morning and arrived at a garage 10 mins away and took a pic straight away to capture my white van not blending in with the green surroundings
  6. I've been looking at all the precipitation charts which are available to us in the public domain over the years and the EURO4 is not the best. I find the ECM precipitation charts to be nearer the mark although it only really gives an idea as to how much precipitation there will be, rather than type. For example... This evening's 12Z output has a lot for much of Scotland...
  7. Parts of Scotland are looking at a significant snowfall event on Thursday.
  8. GFS has now pushed the PPN further North and it is looking very intense for central parts of Scotland. Looking at things, there could be some significant falls of snow in places yet a few miles away it could be rain. ECM, UKMO and GFS now on the same wavelength - the potential for significant snowfall for some parts on Thursday morning, lasting much of the day. I think the further North you are in the main PPN area and away from the coast the better the chance of snow.
  9. Yep, the GFS and Arpege have the bulk of precipitation further South but the ECM and UKMO have it quite a bit further North.
  10. More than enough to build a snowman!
