It's probably better to read posts (e.g. my snow parameters post) fully and carefully before making accusations of bias.

It's looking even more marginal if you going by 12zgfs. low level snow very unlikely

But it is what it is, sloppy. That’s the stuff that comes from the Atlantic.

The gfs has downgraded slightly this evening. A marginal situation gets even more marginal. Falling snow yes lying snow not really

Discusing this is no less desperate than people driving to the summits of the wicklow mountains to see a bit of dandruff along the sides of the road.


so stick it up yer jaxy,with the moaning.
We may get more 'slop' in the wesht, but it is still more slop that those in the east get. Snow is snow!


I suppose, from a westerner's perspective, we are positioned in a relatively lucky position regarding snow. It can come from the SW, W, NW, N, NE, E and SE if conditions are favourable.


For example, snow cover from an Arctic sourced NW'ly in 2010:

Non-slop snow doesn't always have to come from the east.

looks like we are no longer getting a 'direct hit' from this brief sniff of cold, the main area of cold now heading more towards Scotland and down the eastern side of the UK. We get swiped by the western edge of the cold. The cold also seems to be getting squeezed out as it moves southwards.

This is definitely looking more like a rain event now with maybe some wintry shower potential and some frost tomorrow night.

It doesn't.... but generally the most significant amounts of snow tend to come from an easterly, or rather a northerly easterly quadrant. We can get a decent amount of snow from a proper northerly arctic flow, or contrary to what others will have you believe, a potent arctic sourced north westerly. Sadly these days both types of scenarios are rare.
Anyway I think the showers after this front has passed will bring snow to the north west.
