Hoping for a 2010 style snow, but only after I land. I was stuck in transit on the way home that year and spent about 16 hours waiting on my second flight to leave Abu Dhabi. Only then to land in Shannon not Dublin.

Anywho, a harsh frost so it looks all christmasy will do.

That actually may well have been white! The CFS is a long range weather model. As with anything very longe range its accuracy is, em..., open to question shall we say.

Anyway, to show just how fickle it is, here is today's iteration showing a roughly 15c increase in upper air temperature from the one posted above! This would certainly be a green christmas....

Followed by blizzards all Christmas day. No mother in law

Well its now less than 1000 hrs to go and the excitement is..., er..., emm..., palpable?

The CFS is back in our good books today giving a widespread white Christmas (lying snow, albeit very light) as per the below.







G'wan the CFS!

Bit of a yikes forecast from the CFS today. It shows seriously mild weather taking over for some time from around 20 December onwards. See below. Miles away still obviously so could be wildly inaccurate. The (slightly) more reliable GFS will start to show forecasts for the Xmas period from early December so we are maybe 10 days away from a bit more reliability. That said, for the last number of years, the Christmas period has looked doomed to be mild from a long way out so fingers crossed that doesn't happen again. Well due a cold (and hopefully white) one.

Just cross posting here MTs December forecast. Boo........

".....For December, I am predicting temperatures 1.5 to 2.5 degrees above normal, rainfall near normal to 25% above normal, and occasionally stormy with strong winds especially towards end of the month. Just an educated guess but I think it is more likely to be a windy holiday period than a white Christmas scenario but perhaps some northern hills will see some snow out of that kind of pattern...".

The feeling is probably reciprocated With the two of you hoping for blizzards?

For me it can snow or whatever after 18th as that is when the last of my supplies will be ferried in. lol

Just a bit of bad news for those hoping for a white Christmas but my following statement won't necessarily state what type of Christmas we get.

I THINK DECEMBER 2019 WILL BE MILDER THAN NOVEMBER 2019.
