Jesus H that is a bitter, bitter strong and freezing wind out there. God help any homeless or rough sleepers tonight.

Apparently there’s an 8 yr old girl missing in Portadown. All over social media and online news outlets. Been missing since 5.30pm this evening. Hope she’s found safe and well

There’s an awful lot of ppn building in the Irish Sea, I would nearly stay up for this.

its definitely pushing more north 

edit:- and the automated have updated to heavy snow for 6hrs for my location

I’ve heavy snow forecasted for 1am - Im in bed already - don’t think I’ll stay up for it though as I’ve had snow showing before And it never appeared.

hopefully I’m wrong and we wake up to some white stuff before this spell ends

I have never seen a low that was so hard to forecast as this one is!! The amount of uncertainty this week about it is unreal. In saying that my ex wife was called Emma and she was nearly impossible to forecast. :girl_devil::bomb::rofl:

Seems like anything could happen tonight tbh lol. 

Could do. But I’m not staying up late to find out. If I wake to a good dumping overnight great but doesn’t look like it going by gfs. But today was great so can’t complain. 

Met eireann update saying any snow in Ulster will be in the form of showers. That’s good enough for me to hit the scratcher soon. Just wasn’t meant to be.

The snow grains were on the wet side about an hour ago, but remember, this precipitation is coming from the bay of biscay!  There will be some mixing out. I expect the heavier precipitation to be all snow. It's still quite small grains here, but the heavy stuff is coming in off Wales in the next hour or so... I'm in work in the morning. God help me!

 

Oh, and the "egg on face" comments? Please. Have a little respect for the incredible professionals doing their level best to try and predict what could possibly be a very severe time of weather for our land. Sorry for the rant. It just smacks of an uneducated snowflake comment!!!

Here we go again. You seem to have a lot to say about my education. That’s a few times you have mentioned it to me. You do make me laugh though.

Sorry??? Was I talking about you???

Lads, don't take offence, it was a general remark. The "egg on face" comment is thrown about wildly on the MOD thread about UKMO and MetE and I was defending them. Sorry you feel the need to take it personal.

Yip same here. Took the dogs out a dander there and loved seeing the snow blowing around. Reminds me of Iceland and why I have been back the past 3 winters. Lol
