    And the met office outlook changes again (just like the wind) though this time its an upgrade. Honestly nobody has a clue whats going to happen so clearly  i would look no further than 4 days ahead at most 

    14 days away though. Manyana, manyana.

    I have a funny feeling that the snow will arrive but it will last for about 3 days and that will be that.

    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

    We will be terribly unlucky if we don't get a decent cold spell this winter. Terribly!

    This is far from decided yet. Perhaps from now though we can start to get some better consistency.  Well I love in hope.....

    I believe it is possible if we get entrenched cold air and weather fronts moving up from the south east across the country. Our island appears to have 3 micro-climates of N, E&SE and W&SW. I guess a long stretch easterly could deliver but they are rare, as we know. Anyway looking like we may yet get some of the white stuff having consumed way too much of the black stuff over Christmas!

    Really heavy sleet at the minute. Was trying it's best to snow on the Glenshane. Big flakes mixed in. If only it was s bit colder!

    Dew points must be slightly high? Air temp here is at 0c at the minute, dropped early this evening so should be icy tomorrow am.

    Edit:- yup

    Dewpoint cant be warmer than the surface temp - So maybe your reading is slightly to low-

    In a heavy shower with a dewpoint close to 0c normally a temp sub 1c is full on snow

    Thanks Steve, hopefully both temp and dp drop as the radar is looking quite good for some over here for a while this evening to see a bit of snow.

    Next week and beyond looks interesting, looking forward to your thought on it in mod thread

    It was really heavy the whole way to Derry. If only it had of been snow then we would have had a good cover. Looking forward to see what the coming weeks have in store for us.

    Decent enough models tonight but could do with the pattern edging a little further west, as based on current output most of the coldest air is going to our east. With down welling in the strat continuing and main thrust of cold still 6 to 7 days away this is certainly a possibility, although pattern could end up further east also .......The Dec 2017 slider kept correcting west right up to the day in question....It also would help keep us locked in to a colder pattern going forward if final outcome of next week's slider is further west than currently modelled .....

    All to play for....

     An easterly first after a brief PM... That just doesn't cut the mustard. Good but not good enough anymore the bar has heightened these last few days ?. Fingers crossed we get a Greenie high first that will at wish move to Scandinavia or the other way around . 

     

     

    Very Imby ofcourse but IMBY would sum up the model thread at mo.

    Aye not great for the NW of our wee county but looking quite good indeed for the east of it. As you it’s all going to be IMBY I’m afraid. Great for some crap for others.

    I reckon some of you are jumping the gun regarding this. Its not nailed yet. Anything can happen in these setups. In my opinion I think we will all be in the freezer soon. Have a feeling at some stage we will be looking at the Atlantic for our snow! (SLIDERSSSSSS) Lets see what the next few runs bring. Don't forget that this morning dummies were being spat out because there was no Easterly!!

    Very wintry looking 12z and 18z, however,  lets see what the 0z bring tomorrow.  

    Hopefully, similar but everything backed West.
