The cold doesn't reach us until another 6 or 7 days so impossible to tell yet.

The way the models are currently showing, I would expect snow to move across to the West.

Transition day Sunday?

Trying my best to avoid the forum at present, but its hard, really really hard.

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

Still no snow symbols....i’m getting concerned like a few in MOD thread :nonono:

Enjoy tomorrow and Thursday folks as I don’t see temps getting back up to 7 degrees any time soon after.

Snow potential to the end of the run from Monday, but roll on Tuesday based on precipitation chart

Can someone please summarise chart outputs today. It was my mothers birthday and I had her and her fellow widow chum out for day to Newcastle, exhausted! Who would have thought a day trip with 70-80 year old so exhausting!  I have no energy left  to read Model thread.....

You would need 12 cans of red bull at least to even think about it?. All models agree progressively colder and dry until Monday. Bitterly cold thereafter with snow risk increasing..... obviously models differ at that range but general theme is for cold to last through next week with possible troughs in the flow bringing snow to some..Frost and ice also widespread.....As we get closer to Monday we will have better idea regarding snow distribution but as always, east is best in these situations.

Been watching the models for days now.  Haven't really commented.  I never do much with regards to models in case I make an idiot of myself.

But wow omg they are looking amazing.

All good this morning, just the usual negative moaners in the MOD thread spoiling the mood.

Good....bloody fantastic.....I got my first snow symbol for Tuesday :D

Sunday looking like the start of the white stuff for some based on below from MetO.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Turning progressively colder with a brisk easterly wind making it feel very cold. Mainly dry and bright, but the risk of snow showers in the east by Sunday. Widespread frost.

My prediction for next week is cold and dry with overnight frost and occasional wintry showers in the east. All over by the following weekend. No snowmaggeddon or ice age... or 2010 though agreed it will be much colder than recently.

What are you basing this prediction on, may I ask?

What do we think of the chances of snow streamers coming in off the Irish Sea like in 2010 ?? Possible?

Very possible indeed, as ever, wind direction will determine who get what. I would thinks parts of Louth will do very well.

6z coldest temperature maxes of 3 to 5c, 2 to 5c for the next 8 days. 1c in the far east by day 9. A few days back it was showing sub zero by day Monday. With 2 to 5c you won't see much surviving by day this time of the year. I agree with Sparky re cold and dry some wintry showers in East.

Havnt posted at all with reference to this easterly because to be honest I’m far from convinced it is going to be that bad at all. As with most easterlies and the reason  we rarely have them is because they generally get watered down, don’t make it here as they are not strong enough or basically hit Europe instead. I still feel regardless what models are showing this will he the form horse. Yes it will get colder but I don’t see bucket loads  of snow or mass blizzards and people being cut off. Clearly I hope I’m wrong as one final blast would be nice but to be frank I’m so looking forward to spring now. But maybe once the phantom will show it’s face but sadly I don’t think that severe an easterly is inbound.

2m temperatures at day 8 and 9 are rubbish (even at short range they are too) and quite frankly everything at that range is rubbish the FI isn't gospel..
