    18z GFS another downgrade for here. Don't know who to believe! 

    At this range, stick to high resolution models like HIRLAM or Euro 4 and you will get a more intuitive picture of what awaits you!

    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!

    Quite promising in the short term for the white stuff in many parts Thursday morning into the afternoon/evening 850's sub -8 country wide . Thickness <528 , DP's under zero. A number of subtle shortwaves moving down across the country. For a polar maritime airmass its as potent iv'e seen in years.

    Link not working Sperrin?

    Just realised after posting that it was from a 'rival' weather forecasting company so netweather must block links to their material.

    Met office updates mentions prolonged snow on Thursday. Toys out of pram on model thread for next weeks Easterly

    Yet the ECM still shows the Easterly. Bi polar in there.

    Chances of snow from 9pm tonight through to Saturday am, the models have predicted this very well in my opinion.

    Tomorrow afternoon/evening looks the most promising.

    Yep spot on it was always been forcasted to be a 2-3 day cold blast from the North with snow chances any of the days unlike some that keep beating the drum for 24hr cold snap, and as for the model thread attention seekers toys firmly out of the pram best to describe them  the best if it is they always seem to be from that same area in South and let and behold they have nothing to cry about as that low looks like turning to snow and they could see more snow than any of us, further ahead there better placed than all of us for the continently slack easterly feed and low temps keeping the snow around right to the end of the ecm run,  I give up what more do they want oh thats right 4ft deep snow and -30c rant over lol..:)

    That wind was really strong all night. One thing for sure is if this wind keeps up then most of us will see blizzard conditions overnight and in to tomorrow.

    The laugh about it is and I've been on here since 2008 is that as u say if it's not snowing / stormy / thunderstorms / major wind event etc in London and SE then it's not happening anywhere. Some great posters in model thread but some whinging and gurning done also. Every run taken at face value. I haven't seen snow for nearly 2 winters now but it is what it is. Maybe that will change in next day or so. 

    Good luck everyone for the white stuff !!

    No, I've just resigned myself to the fact that the Dublin snow shield is operating at 100%. Has been since 2010!

     

    Good luck to you all, enjoy the sneachta! I might just hibernate as the jealousy might just kill me!

    It's a bit Baltic in the wind out there. My wife has this flu thing kicking around so I'm taking time off to look after her. 

     

    Fortunately I'll be at home to watch the snowfall. Fire lit already.

    Don't like the bit in the met office forecast about snow away from the North Coast, hope my elevation helps or I'll be consumed with jealousy like Rochy!

    All down to the distribution of showers. Who knows, i could completely miss out and 5 miles down the road will get a pasting. Has happened too many times in the past. Ever get the feeling this is going to be the longest day ever waiting for nightfall. Lol

    Seems strange to have two separate warnings for Friday, perhaps one was updated shortly after the first one? http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/#?tab=warnings&map=Warnings&zoom=5&lon=-3.50&lat=55.50&fcTime=1484265600&regionName=ni

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
