Don't give up hope yet................

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Frequent snow showers, strong winds with blizzard conditions and some disruption likely, especially in eastern areas on Thursday. Less snow showers on Friday, but some disruptive snow possibly on Saturday.

My point exactly but this isn’t showing on bbc graphics which I can’t get my head around.

I have never seen so much snow in my life like today,I was trying to reach my friend who lives in  Manor Kilbride on Sally gap road(Wicklow Mountains)  to give him a lift to the shops as he spent last

Lovely record breaking morning from West Wicklow, we have got an inch or two on the ground

But but but... Who'd collect for the many charities, or sing in the gospel choir on Sunday mornings? What happened out there was premeditated looting. It's disgraceful. Shocking and abusing the f

The short sea track in the North Easterly is killing us. Tomorrow winds turn more Easterly so increases our hopes. The new graphics are dire.

GFS goes with ICON, no precipitation makes it North at all on Friday from the system, in fact it barely gets to the Dublin area.

Some big showers incoming for Central Eastern areas

Noticed the showers pepped up for west and south of NI with east dry. Ironic given it’s an easterly wind. Doesn’t quite work for the east no matter what direction it comes from ??

Wind is NE. That’s the problem. Should be more easterly tomorrow which should help. But this so called beast from the east is horrific. And I won’t be chasing a SSW again with such verve in future years.

This SSW has been just so strong (record breathtakingly) its overcooked everything and has meant the high drifts away much quicker than initially thought.

Yep. Does this more times than nout during any touch of a SSW. Flatters to deceive. Or should I be more exact not the SSW but the beast from the east!  Stupid name ! :D
