Victims of the 2017 Snow Blizzard Speak Out Some harrowing tales are emerging across the country this morning as the victims of the 2017 snow storm share their stories.  The whole of Norther

Just saw total accumulation maps (for next 48hrs) from latest euro4 model. Think I peed myself a little!

Guys - good luck with the snow potential over the next few days  cameras at the ready!

Some serious imbyism on the model thread anything outside of southern England is a bust

Indeed Carbon very misleading as well, personally I detest the phrase beast from the east and the continued hunting for this resulting in the total disregard for cold that might benefit other regions!

Even if we don't get snow, I love a good Christmas storm. All snuggled up in front of the fire with a wee beer or three as the wind and rain rages outside.

Lovely stuff!

I have a hankering to get a real nice bottle of Irish or Scottish whiskey, anyone any suggestions??

This winter is so boring!! Least we had a bit of rain to change the norm grey skies ! And were us GP in the model thread. Has he done a runner? Anyway the chase continues just like every year. And will be the same outcome I'm sure. Not much snow.

GP has just posted in the model thread Neiller :) not sure what it all means but the final week of December may hold some interest?

Looking at recent runs there appears to be a chance of PM shots of -4 uppers around the Christmas period. Perhaps a chance of seeing some white stuff in favoured locations?

I would take the GEM for xmas day should get wintery showers with that chart, i would,nt look to much into the @850 as they are always 4-5 degree colder than what they say on the GEM.

At least Christmas is looking interesting. If we do get a deep low near and overhead, the deeper the better as the 850mb level will be lower so the air will be less modified. If we could just get -6 850s, snow would be certain.

Imagine a Christmas Night blizzard!

That was a crazy storm! We got a call later in the night to say that a tree had fallen in through our kitchen roof! We couldn't get home until the next morning as the main Victoria Road out of Derry was blocked by several fallen trees.
