    Just a thought, even as such a small island as ours has wildly different weather events depending on where you are on the island. Would there be much call for provincial threads for Ireland? Say Leinster, Ulster, Munster and Connaught? Or is that too much?

    Right, tomorrow is planned. We're rising early, and if the snow (as expected) hasn't given us enough to play in (my lads are snow starved) then we're heading to higher climates and we're building a sn

    I’m disappointed with the snow here today but not as disappointed as my wife will be tomorrow with her valentines present 😬

    It's now snowing. Light enough, but a dusting is now accruing. Radar looks like it could sustain for a while. Will report back in a half hour and may take the dog out for a ramble if it peps up! There

    Wouldn't be much call for it I dont think.

    In the meantime I think we'll be into week 3 of January before we see some impacts of the SSW.

    Good idea. Not that many users from Ireland on here compared to boards though. Would probably work better there. Not sure if they are any frequent posters on here outside of Ulster and Leinster?

    Agree ...not enough posters to make the change worthwhile....also, although weather does vary greatly on the island, I do like popping in to see what the weather is like in different areas, seeing the snow /  lightning  photos etc....

    Has been disappointing cold spell so far in that synoptics look good but has been very marginal. Lovely frosty nights though and I have seen snow fall  here on 27th December, 31st December (including temporary dusting) and a light flurry earlier this evening (even though radar was showing rain)... ..beats the mild South West winds anyday... but really hope the SSW  lands favourably to give us a non marginal snowy set up - at least for a few days....

    Was out the the shed there and all the frost was still there at dinner time is gone and it feels a bit warmer. Only 1 tiny patch of frost on the roof of the car.

    18z GFS and para both suggesting it's a very brief and short lived slightly milder blip. 

    A trend or a blip??

    Hopefully a blip,but however milder it gets or how long it lasts hopefully the effects of the ssw will save us in the end.

    Lovely white frost this morning. Yesterday's max was 2.1c so alot of frost survived. If I can't have nice dry snow then this is the next best thing.

    Lovely frost this morning.

    As for that front pushing South on Wednesday, all rain I'm afraid.

    High pressure then looks to dominate whilst we wait for the SSW into the fourth week of January to deliver.

    Very icy here in South Kilkenny this morning....... had several showers pass through during the night that froze on roads and pavements leaving everything like an ice rink...several crashes on the roads here.... if upper temps were a degree or two lower we would have had a nice covering of snow overnight....pathetic easterly so far in that regard but hopefully showers will turn more to snow today and tomorrow as upper temps lower further......prolonged cold spell at this stage and likely to last until weekend at least bit all the while very marginal unfortunately.....Hopefully something more substantial cold and snow wise just around the corner..... ..also wouldn't be surprised to see current cold spell extend and become colder without much of a warm up....models  could flip that way in next few days quite easily..   all to play for

    You can see the problem as to why the Northerlies and Easterlies aren't delivering with sea surface temperatures 2 to 4 degrees above average.

    This of course means that we need upper air temperatures significantly below average to counter it.

    Now, if we do a get a decent response the SSW and those significantly below average upper arise and cross those above average sea temperatures then it's BOOM.

    What are the odds of SSW benefitting us? Is it simply 50/50 it will or won’t? 

    The UK met office say it has a 2 out 3 chance of bringing colder weather.

    Met Eireann today "Every SSW is different and less than half of them lead to colder conditions in Ireland" full story here

    Icon tells you all you need to know for the outlook very uncertain sliders could be in order.

    Desperate times on here, if we're looking for Icon to save the day.

    UKMO more likely with high pressure building in and keeping us drier with frosts at night. It's where the high goes next that holds the key.

    That UKMO is not a bad place to be. I would rather have the HP on top of us than South of us for sure.

    Clouded over a bit today with max temp of 3.4c. current 2.1c.  a slight breeze here last few days has prevented any real low night time temps but I see castlederg got -5c and and katesbridge -7c night before.

    Met Eireann mentioning rain turning to snow Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Hopefully some of us get lucky with that.

     

    Wednesday will continue very cold with sunny spells and with frost and ice clearing slowly, but lingering in some areas. Highest temperatures of just 1 to 4 degrees generally, in a light northwest breeze, and remaining below freezing in some midland and western areas throughout the day. Cloud will increase in the northwest later. During the evening rain will develop in the northwest and will spread southeastwards throughout Wednesday night, falling as sleet or snow in some areas. Lowest temperatures of -2 to +2 degrees with frost and icy patches in many areas.
