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!

Rainfall Warning

Many parts of the country will have rainfall accumulations of 25 to 40mm tonight and for a time Friday.

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.

Valid until 18:00 hours Friday 18/1/2013

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

      As much as I would love to update it here I am updating live snow updates on the website here
      It could be that the south of the UK gets snow this evening  I for one am really looking forward to it.

      Would this be the pinnacle of the winter, a covering of white on the 25th, or do you live in an area where you'd be glad to see snow at any point this winter. 
      It turns out it is quite a complicated business defining a White Christmas, from the observations. A look at various types of frozen precipitation, including those that look like snow but aren't and out in the cold 'sleet'. https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/news/8573-wintry-showers-and-what-counts-for-white-christmas-observations

      Whilst trying to confirm which met observations were allowed for a White Christmas, quite a list of frozen precipitation resulted. And 'sleet' gets left out in the cold
