    Always nice to see snow falling but what a crock of .... for mid winter. Hopefully we see something of worth in January. 

    Sure the mod thread guarantees it, SSW is always ready to deliver, if it wasn’t for those pesky short waves. Snowy January’s are as rare as dry August’s in Ireland, I know that. Nevertheless, at least 12 weeks, so we shall see.

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

    good luck ireland ?  

    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

    I was hoping to get up early in the morning and go for a hike with the dog up to the Glenshane but I'd probably be better having a lye in. Milder air taking over 😢😢

    Yeah such a waste. Higher hopes for January. There just isn't any real cold to tap in to at the minute. I'm normally on my 2nd or 3rd Iceland trip at this stage of Winter but gutted that I can't go anywhere. Booked for mid March so fingers crossed.

    Need a true Arctic Northerly these North westerly sourced pm flows dont cut it.

    This was bad even for a PM flow. 2017/18? type they can deliver sometimes but never for long low down. 2000 and 2010 had a good one. We're overdue a proper one come next week ha.

    Hopefully a bit of normality returns soon but you might not have to go if we get a 2010 repeat😁

    Ha that's a big if. 🤔🤔 I've experienced some amazing snow storms in Iceland the past few years. They will be hard to beat. I must dig out a few photos and videos and post them here. Amazing to experience. We had to dig our way out after one of the storms 😂😂

    Can't beat a warm fish supper.

     

    Let's be clear though. I pretty much had one heavy fall of snow which melted after 20 minutes.

    Not exactly 1963 or 1947.

    Just cold miserable rain this morning. Not even a bit of frost or ice. You were right mountain shadow.

    Got some snow in south Tipp yesterday. Huge flakes and stuck a little bit eventually. Turned to rain during the night though, so all gone now.

    Cant believe we have a Northerly airstream in Winter and have only rain at 400 feet.

    The upper air temperatures look better mid week but not a lot of precipitation around to take advantage. 

    Looking further ahead, maybe an Easterly but again the uppers are poor.

    It's mental but then it's a sign of how things are I suppose, the effects of global warming perhaps?

    There's no doubt in my mind that global warming is making it more difficult to get cold enough air in.
