Right folks we have an epic Pub Run! Has to be one of the best days for model watching since i have started! I am no expert and very far from it but some of the charts that were put out today was unbelievable for this early in the season! To put things in perspective, 2/3 weeks ago everyone was was writing November off as a mild one and look what we have now, people said that we would have nothing compared to 2010 for a long time but the models are hinting at this! I'm a serious ramper and will ramp things up when they deserve to be ramped up!Posted Image  I don't think since the cold started showing that there has been any downgrades, it has just constantly upgraded with each model run! Could turn out to be a really cold winter and i may even start to believe in the articles the Express write(well thats ripping the A R S E out of it!) Posted Image

A very interesting set up, especially for next week, although it looks largely dry across much of Ireland during the middle of the week (away from the north and west coasts). Its looking decidedly chilly in many areas by night, down to about -5C in my part of the world! :DAlso, to any stargazers among you, Comet Ison will become easily visible in the night sky over the coming week, peaking around the 28th (reaching negative magnitude and possibly as bright as Venus). There'll be plenty of clear skies across the country next week, so there's ample opportunity for those of you who want to get a good look. :)

Looking good alright. But I won't believe it until 3/4 days before. Then we need to watch longevity, and even that is starting to look a bit more solid now. We got nowt from last winter here on the east coast, but if the NWP were to come off largely, I reckon even our pal Snowstorm445 in Cork would see some settling white stuff!!!

I live in hope. :D

I know but the seas really mild and its been so mild recently. Find it hard to believe the 2c that is predicted for tuesday nevermind 0c.

But I suppose in 2010 it was the same, quick transition.

Think the only way we'd get an ice day is if we have a few inches of dry snow on the ground and if we have showers all day.

November and Autumn 2010 started very mild. I'm not saying that we will get the same again this year but the building blocks are certainly there! We live in hope lad.

Oh aye it is. I have an eery feeling, the length of this coldsnap keeps upgrading. Think it was 1 day the otherday now its 4 days. Edited by smithyweather

One word of advice Smithy and i know you are very eager and wanting snow but don't look into things to much as your head will be fried come Spring! I haven't left this computer all day so its time for bed and i hope to wake up to much of the same in the morning.

 

PS. Stick your postcode into Metcheck for some eye candy for the rest of the month. It will change later today again but very nice to see!! Posted Image

Your only about 10 miles from me then.

Tbh you might see more snow but it won't lie. Even in 2010 there was only a wee bit up there. We are all wasting our time talking about this now, like you say we gotta wait to Sunday.

i'm surprised in bangor we had a foot of snow in 2010 and where i was in bangor we get nearly nothing normally

 

edit this is the only pic i can find from 2010 we got more snow after that was taken but i can't find them. was annoying digging that motor out

On track. However keep in mind the fetch of cold air - it's interrupted. We really need cold air to dig down in to Scanadinavia prior to the northeasterly flow. Don't look at 850's yet - it's too far out. I'd be reasonably confident of snow at this stage for some - hopefully many. It depends on the fetch of cold air. 

 

Synoptics are perfect.

I was just about to say. Them ones are doing my head in, they are awful. Think i'm gonna have to put a few of them on ignore now, I try and go on to get an image of each run but its so hard when none of them actually give a true representation of what is happening! For example, Some of them are saying a short cold snap with sleet at best when the met office have snow down for me!
