A week to 10 days or so coming up where the best we can hope for is some cold zonal weather or a northerly toppler until the remaining vortex energy crosses the Atlantic.

After that anything could happen, though by the end of February the chances of any prolonged cold and snowy spells starts to grow quite thin.

This probably won't go down well, but I am glad to see the end of this cold snap. Ive been making hospital visits and its been hairy driving in the ice and snow.

Yes I'm glad that we are getting a break from the snow as well. Travel in and out of Belfast has been a complete nightmare the last seven days. Not saying I don't want more snow but I'm just glad for the break at the mo! Least it's not boring with rain and storms forecast.

It was fun in the run-up to the snow event and while the snow was fresh, but then it iced over and became dangerous. The rain is welcome. However, despite the downpour there is still a considerable amount of lying snow. Next week could be interesting for different reasons.

Some serious flooding on the mountain road between Cookstown and Claudy! Some parts of the road had a foot of water on it and rivers coming from the fields! Now if this was snow falling from the sky then I'd say this would have been something special! Hopefully see the cold back in February!

To be honest,what some of us had in the east the last week was special! Never known it to snow heavy continuously for approx 10 hrs on two separate days within the space of three days. I had at least 6-8 inches on the ground since last fri until last night! Not bad for a cold spell in this country! More than we could ask to be honest. But as u say here's hoping everybody sees some before winter is done. As time is now marching on.

I'm glad of the milder weather for now too. Can't top my heating up for a couple weeks and just about to run dry, so good.

Anyone know what time it is?

It's whiskey time.

Had offers to play snooker for money tonight but had a night out planned, so making them wait.

Anyone any more ideas for the Ireland meetup? I'd like it to be a single night, at a time when nothing much is happening (ie holidays, etc), somewhere in the middle so an equal distance for those on each side of the border. Enniskillen could be a good shout.

Thnks folks, life goes on, I will really miss him he was a big charcter as was evident at the amount of mourners at the wake and funeral.

Anyway looks like it is going to be mild for a while later then a chance of wintry showers as the front passes on!!

There's been little or no mention of the lows heading our way this coming week except in relation to wheher they do (or do not) have bearing on a future cold spell, yet-they look nasty, the GFS in particular looking quite dramatic. We're in the firing line.

It's very wild here in Celbridge this evening, and also at Casement, whereas at Dublin Airport things are much calmer.

DUBLIN AIRPORT SSE 16 kts

CASEMENT SSE 29 gust 41 kts

Most likely a Föhn effect from the mountains.

Meanwhile that storm has brought 64 knot sustained speeds, gust 78 knots, to Vestmannayjaer, southern Iceland at 1800Z.

      Here's a few pics from the storm on the 14th. Cape Clear is an island off the south Cork coast and is the most southerly inhabited place in Ireland. Twas difficult to stand straight at times and I lost count of the number of shocks I got from electric fences! It was a few hours before the worst of the winds, but I still recorded a gust of over 110km/h with mini handheld weather station I have attached to my bag.

      Went to Malin Head in the early hours. Absolutely insane! Recorded a sustained windspeed of approx 50mph and highest gust I recorded while there was 60mph. Standing up at the Radio Tower was almost impossible without the help of some of the abandoned buildings up there.   On my way back down into Malin Head I had to slam my breaks on, but couldn't avoid a downed phoneline or electric line. Managed to slap right off the roof.   Heading back in a homeward direction between Malin Town and Carndonagh there was a downed electric line covering the road. Had to ring the police and notify them of it as it was just over a slight crest.
