Winter 2020-2021 - The search for the first Snowfall

Some model output is showing that a colder phase of weather could develop from the middle of November with the AO flipping sharply negative and a NAO- developing.

Hopefully this thread will be able to bring us from today through.

Some models look similar to the evolution in 2010!

As ever models will chop and change at this forecast distance- but maybe we can hold a watch to keep us interested!






MOD NOTE: Changed the title of the Thread as mid-November is here and the search for the first snow continues!

Was 2010 the snow that lasted for weeks?

I think it was a really cold rather than snowy one, snowed a bit early on and was just frozen for weeks after with unbelievably cold days. Rather than the really stormy snowy one the year after, could be wrong though

I think you are right. We got a prolonged cold spell. We had a heavy snowfall around about the end of November and as far as I can remember it cleared away quick-ish enough. We got another snowfall a few weeks after that and it was very cold and icy for weeks afterwards. It took forever to thaw out.

2010 was the guy falling on ice one, but very snowy in most parts of the country.

I think there are tentative signs of a change to drier and colder weather within the 7 - 10 day range OP, probably a slack northerly of some sort. Whether things progress from there to something more exciting remains to be seen.

It's a long way out but will be keeping an eye

How likely is this to develop into a sharp cold spell?

Would it be maddess to order a pair of them walking sticks with grips? I remember 2010 and it was a headache.

I'd prefer another Beast from the East.

From 2010 I remember the long lingering ice which was an absolute pain to be getting around in and the gov doing next to nothing to clear even in Dublin city centre.

You're right. Beast from the east was cold but it was over quickly. 2010 was an absolute pain in the fcuking hole.

We went out and bought every ounce of salt in the world market but don't you know most of that has decayed away by now... On a brighter note your man's headache has just cleared up...
