Took the Drone up for a wee shot of Derry this morning. Great to see some snow on the ground.

Definitely good to see Pom. I really have a feeling that we are going in to the freezer whether or not we see a pile of snow or not then I will settle for ice days and winter sunshine. Here is a few s

    Those ECM charts are notoriously poor though.

    I remain unconvinced that the air will support lying snow away from higher hills and mountains, but we'll see I suppose.

    It's hard to know what to think I have to say. Good synoptics, but it's all so very marginal most days. I think anyone may get some snow, but for so many it was just be cold and damp which isn't pleasant. And it keeps reloading right through to the end of runs, which prolongs things. Anyway as next week progresses the ECM has this for 31st, not insignificant lying snow, Northern Ireland gets the most

    That snow row looks impressive until you check the percentages, highest is 64% mostly less than 20. Hopefully though things will improve🤞

    Okay parameters not perfect marginal at best at the start of this upcoming cold spell but Sunday gives a chance of widespread snow with that low diving south.

    Merry Christmas all stay safe🌲🌲

    Hard to tell where we stand in Ireland following the mod thread as only one wee corner of the British Isles matters!!

    Anyone want to make a call about our potential over the weekend into next week?

    Here's a snapshot of the gfs 12z, is this a pretty interesting wave forming over NI on Monday evening on that low pressure dropping from the North????

    I was out on the bike today doing the 5 forests and it was snowing when I was going through Drumramer forest between the Coleraine mountain road and ringsend road. It was very dry powdery snow and was lying on the grass readily but wasn’t very heavy. 
     

    Lovely views today too Keady mountain to the right and Lough Foyle.

    After what I've been saying in the MOD thread, if I do get snow, I'll need to keep my head down for a bit!.

    Happy Christmas all.
