Ireland Regional Discussions 17th January 2013 onwards

Recommended Posts

New thread for the Ireland regionals.

Ramp away, discuss the ever changing Ireland weather and snow prospects.

Be good, no arguing or I'll be chopping heads. diablo.gif

Getting colder as the day is coming to an end here, fingers were getting numb under the gloves.

12z GFS is quite the snowfest! Starting in the north tomorrow evening and then the rest of the country later in the weekend.

Things looking interesting!

Strong southeasterly winds will occur with the rain overnight. Ulster and northern counties of Connacht and Leinster will see rain turning to sleet and snow early on Friday morning giving some deposits on higher ground.

Should we be concerned that Met IE are warning of accumulations only on higher ground?

That's only valid until Friday afternoon and was posted up at quarter past 4 so included their own model and earlier runs. They should give another update later today when the other 12z runs have come out that will likely sound much better.

Met Eireann are usually very conservative when it comes to mentioning snow, so even that slight mention is a positive sign imo!

Metcheck aren't a reputable weather site. It will snow here,Mt on boards gives the highest totals to be in areas like southern Donegal. I asked for snowfall totals not hateful feedback lol jk

Well it is looking good for NI Friday for all but south Ulster, but becoming more widespread as the weekend moves on. Look at dew points from the 12z

      There have been bigger, and there have been stronger... but it's also going to be a lovely summer storm in the UK, so I figured it's worthy of its own thread.

      I realised we talk a lot about the weather generally, on here and across the UK but one thing that is rarely mentioned is the UV index so my first question is; Do you guys know whether we have ever recorded a UV index of 9 here in the UK? 
      I see many places as far north as Nottingham will be hitting 8 next week provided there are clear skies and many times I've known the UV to hit 8 in London, most years we get atleast 7-10 days I'd say but surely somewhere on the south coast will have hit 9 on a few accasions.
      I also regularly check www.temis.nl which gives a clear sky UV index forecast which over many years I've come to realise is generally is out by 1UV. They are forecasting 7.5 in London next week which if I'm right would mean 8.5 and surely the south coast could hit 9 by that reasoning? Any thoughts or facts would be interesting to hear. Thankyou

      Hello everyone!
       
      I own a Hama EWS-180 temperature meter which has a wireless sensor to measure the outside temperature. The only place I could place it was outside on the grass and today someone mowned the lawn and along with it the sensor :/ I've searched but couldn't find a replacement sensor to buy, so do you have any ideas where can I buy one?
