Ireland Regional Weather Discussion 13/12/2018 Onwards

Recommended Posts

By the time this fizzles out the whole of NI will have seen snow which is great to see!! Don't think most if us expected it. Now it there can just be a repeat after dark when temps drop then some areas could do get well. I am happy with the wee dusting we have just got.

Looks like everyone is gonna get a bit of action out of this!

Sadly not! Looks like the Dublin snow shield has regrouped after getting a thrashing last year!

Snow is melting as soon as showers stop, going all slushy. It'll be a slidey walk home after dark for me from the bus! Starting to snow again now.

Down to 0.5c here at present. Might get messy with a frost on top

Snow of course melts as soon as the showers stop.  I am slightly disapointed that it is just a dusting, but go out of the low level areas and there is a lot more of it around.

Bloody typical.  I'm just leaving Dublin where there's nothing and missing all the fun.

Heaving it down in Carryduff apparently.

Frozen solid here now. Any more snow that falls tonight will settle. Could be a tricky drive to work in the morning!

Saw this posted elsewhere. Met office outlook.  Just sharing 

"And the "Stopped Clock Award" for 2019 goes to.....


December 14: Through the first half of January there is an increasing likelihood for it to turn colder bringing the increased risk of winter hazards, especially frost and fog. Some snow is also likely with temperatures expected to fall below normal. However, there is uncertainty in the timing of this change to turn colder, and it could come before the end of December.

December 18: Through the first half of January, there is an increasing likelihood that colder weather may begin to dominate with a greater chance of seeing east or northeasterly winds.

December 21: Then, further into January, most probably becoming colder and drier than normal, with an increased likelihood of easterly winds.

December 24: By mid-month there is a greater chance of colder weather, with an increasing likelihood of frost, fog and snow, with these conditions probably continuing for the rest of the period.

December 31: By the third week of January there is then an increased likelihood of a change to much colder weather generally, bringing an enhanced risk of frost, fog and snow.

January 3: Towards the end of January, however, there is an increased likelihood of a change to much colder weather generally, bringing an enhanced risk of frost, fog and snow.

January 7: As the rest of the month progresses and into early February there is an increased likelihood of colder weather to become established generally, which will bring an enhanced risk of frost, fog and snow.

January 9: During the last week of January and into early February, there is an increased likelihood of cold conditions being established generally across all of the UK. This would bring an enhanced risk of snow and widespread frost, especially in the north.

January 13: For the end of January and into early February, there is an increased likelihood of cold weather being established across all of the UK, with temperatures continuing a downward trend to become cold or very cold.

January 21: As we head through February there is an increased chance of seeing very cold conditions developing with a greater probability of northerly or easterly winds.

The cloud cover to the west of Iceland is heading this direction if you want the loop on sat24, wonder how much precipitation, if any, is in it and what the consequences are for us

Cheers for that Gaz. Sitting looking at the Radar thinking where the hell is this snow coming from. Lol. Could be a late night.

the link will take you to sat24 ronan, it will give an indication of cloud cover, it’s an assumption that it will bring more snow

One thing for sure is that anything that falls from here on in will lye. Pity the mild will win out by tomorrow afternoon but it will be rinse and repeat by the end of the weekend. Here's hoping anyway.
