Thankfully, with you being located on an island in the Atlantic Ocean, your chances of being cut off due to snow have diminished vastly since you moved from your upland location on the mainland. You may be one of the last to report disruptive snow. Fingers crossed this is the case at your extremely isolated location.

That's a bit far out. There can't be any reliability in that, can there? I didn't think charts would be even produced that far out.

When I post charts like this, it's for the fun of weather enthusiasts, nothing serious. I thought I'd stop saying "just for fun" because I assume everybody knows that by now and getting annoyed of me constantly saying it.

The CFS is a ridiculous model and goes as far out as Summer 2019 right now.

When would we expect to have some credible predictions for this?

There is always an sound explanation for hysteria. This poster has wisdom!

As regards this winter, the Liffey will freeze and robins will be knocking at the door to come inside.
and the cats will be licking their lips...

Maybe the ocean will freeze and we can skate across....

We had snow here this year.. I have photos on my phone... The ferry would be fine but the roads at each end..

so we stay home... snug

Shortly will be getting a whole load of island turf ... Love snow when there has been good preparation for it.

Out of interest, what's the actual point of the CFS if it's totally inaccurate? I mean, doing 50/50 FI runs out to 10 or 15 days is one thing, but surely they wouldn't dedicate valuable supercomputer processing time to running such a long and I'm assuming CPU-intensive model unless there was at least some tangible benefit to doing so?
