Hi-res snow accumulation for what it's worth..



Just a rough guide and in reality most of what falls along the west coast will be hail rather than snow.

That's not correct imo

Even to see lots of snow on the Maamturks and Partrys will be splendid.

Are all models showing this system?


It would be in range of some of the UK high Res tools from today but is being mostly forecast by human forecast + model blending of those tools
Only today have they that wave this far north which is not to be discounted as it's so close now
Any move will have big impacts

Basically Thursday will be a now cast scenario with Sat images and Radar telling all. One thing for sure this cold will be a shock to the system. Its 11.1c here in Waterford City and feels so mild.
Exciting output from the models this morning. Could we finally get the elusive beast from the east next week.

Hope we get lots of snow but too many years of disappointment to get too excited

Euro 4 6z. Still good for the Northern half of the country even with the small downgrades this morning. Thats how far the chart will go to 48hrs until next update later.

Yeah, you would hope with ground enough reason that 6 hrs later that rain in the south would be snow.

Met Eireann seem to think the wave will turn to snow
If it's track is due east southeast,it would have to wouldn't it as minimum impact on the CAA from the northwest and then that cold air advection would certainly have to be engaging with the front
Not long until we know
It's very complicated

so does that mean some parts of the east may see a few showers

What county are you moving from one mountain to another ?

Don't worry Rebelbrowser.. the fact that I'm due to fly from Belfast on Thursday for a long awaited reunion with good friends in Europe means that (with my luck) we're more likely to have an all out blizzard than a downgrade!


I'll meet you for coffee in the airport! I'm flying to Tenerife at 12.

There's actually a possibility that higher parts of the southeast might see more snow than Ulster if that wave lingers and engages with the CAA

Depending on the affect of the wave which could change things radically,the template for this episode is Xmas day 2004
It snowed in Arklow that day but didn't settle
It did in Meath and across all the high ground in Dublin and Wicklow

The ground seems to be drying out here,if it's dry enough the snow will stick easily enough.
That's if it snows.
A good dry spell until tomorrow would be good.
