If I do see snow (which will be nothing more than shcutter) from this event, it would be the first observed snow this winter for my location, which is extraordinary in itself. I was actually kinda hoping that I could get through this winter without seeing a single flake, just to see if it can be achieved, but I guess climatology will always win out in the end.

not a flake fell here all last winter, at least I can't remember one! We did get some brief snowfall in March one Sunday afternoon. Not a flake this year either. I'll amazed if I see any snow from Monday/Tuesday event.

Took a while to get going last year here as well, but did see some on occasion eventually. There was one morning in particular (I forget the date, early Feb i think) when there was a small but all encompassing covering coupled with an extraordinary Alpine blue sky. One of the most beautiful mornings I had seen, and have seen, in a long while.

Nothing whatsoever is going to come out of this.

Why?

Because my car is on a full set of new winter tyres, that's why

'Significant weather' chart for next Monday morning from the latest output. Some snow, some rain, some hail, some sleet. A real mixed bag:



No doubt accompanied by a penetrating, miserable feeling chill that I have never experienced under a true northerly or easterly. There is something about the north Atlantic cold that is just nasty.

The 18z gfs is rolling and it keeps the uppers cold enough for snow. Indeed an upgrade if anything! Lying snow more than possible by Monday night

Not sure what you mean. The 18z is as reliable as any other run particularly in the shorter timeframes.
Anyways tomorrow will tell us more

RTE news weather talking about 'snow on higher ground' so I'll just pretend I didn't see this thread to avoid disappointment.
