    Looking at the next couple of days there's a mild sector coming from the Northwest so 4 to 6c herewith rain. Even on them there charts when it's minus 9 it's 3 in Sligo. Saw a bbc weather forecast and there was snow down the North and East later in the week but all rain showers here. However parts if Mayo and inland Sligo did ok at night with snow. Sligo town will get nowt snow in the coming days. Far too mild at 4 or 5c every day. Small chance at night.

    Noticeably colder here today in Roundwood. +3.5c here at the moment and rain showers. A hard frost will do me fine as we can access some fields that are normally too soft this time of year.

    Despite a warning for snow in Donegal in the coming days most of the showers in the Northwest will be of rain or sleet. Colder temperatures will be inland.

    Tonight a milder sector is moving into the Northwest so even though therell be precipitation it will mostly be rain. In fact temperatures in the Northwest will hover around zero at night and 5c by day so conditions will be be as severe here. However if the Easterly component returns at the weekend there could be some hard frost and an odd snowflake

    -0.4c here frost is around and also stunning setset

    Or maybe because people have been so burned in the past that they aren't interested until 48 hours out. Already there is talk of the mildness winning out as early as Monday. So a 4 day cold spell is hardly that exciting.

    I put the infrared lamp on tonight in the well pump house.

    A cold spell is, badly needed

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,427 ✭✭✭✭ Larbre34

    Thats definitely a large part of it. Many of the weather greats and those that used to pop in to follow them are ancient history now.

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,427 ✭✭✭✭ Larbre34

    The recent model outputs are a knife in the heart of a wintry outcome.

    Maybe the GFS is the form horse this winter.. 🤔 (until it shows mild evolutions 😀)

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,864 ✭✭✭ finnharpsboy

    So for those that haven’t got a clue how any of the charts work ( me :D ) …. What have we to look forward to in Dublin weather-wise over the next few days?

    Wire it with a thermostat. Great job and only on when needed. Have it done here. Just hoping none of the water pipes freeze to the house and the cattle sheds.
