SPRING WEATHER 2014

Maybe its looking good for some early warmth, don't want to jinx it though.

ECM 190 hr



GFS 190 hr



GEM 190 hr




Was only a few years ago when we got a great few days of weather in March.

I remember getting 21C for nearly a week a few year's ago in mid-March, while it was great it turned out to be better than the weather we had May-August of that same year! But after the winter we've just had im looking forward to what could be a very mild and more settled March, any cold weather can now fek off till next November.

That was the end of March 2012, days 24th to 29th were all above 16c.

Also, March 2010 IIRC had a big snowfall with some big drifts in Northern Leinster and Southern Ulster.

March of many weathers!

I remember St Patricks day in March 1999 was a scorcher with temps around 20C.

Three weeks later, we had a few cm of snow!

I have often seen charts like this end up as quite a potent northerly as an intense anticyclone drifts west and eventually leads to a Greenland high - not saying it will happen but wouldn't surprise me.

I wouldn't be surprised. After months, the westerly pattern is finally going to change and the projected high pressure is part of this change. I can see it being quite pleasant with below average rainfall until mid month, followed by a Northerly or NWesterly towards the second half of the month.

Do any of the weather experts want to speculate on Finnish weather over next few weeks... particularly east Finland at the 'hip' on the map. Its been a rubbish winter so far. North America has stolen our cold air. Theres little snow on the ground now in March which never happens and skiing (Nordic) is a dead loss. its been groundhog day since October... low cloud, around zero degrees, snows a bit, melts a bit. Except for two week cold spell in January, that's been it. I've had a look at the models and it looks like cold air mass moving our way next week but its borderline... will I get to ski at all this year?

Next weeks temps in ireland look like being around the 9c-11c mark by day and below 0c at night in places.

At around mid month there are some signs of it possibly turning less settled and colder after the few days of high pressure.

Tuesday-Thursday look good. Obviously chilly by night but very pleasant during the day and will be a nice change

Exactly the same here in poland. We've had 2 spells of cold and snow, but its been dry and sunny for the rest of the time. I've had the skis out 4 times this winter!

Beautiful weather here in south east England this week, sunny every day and most importantly not a drop off rain all week. Made it to 17C today and potentially even higher over the weekend, Spring in full flow
