Only remember one or two exceptional years where March didn't play out that way.
I've only ever heard it the other way around?

I'm not sure what the above poster is referring to. The 12Z ECMWF run today still showed the -10c 850hPa flirting with the northern coasts next Thursday.

At this moment in time, the cold spell is still in play.

Typical! Chase a northerly all winter and one may well come along in April. Although, i seem to recall in years gone by we often got potent northerlies in late March into April.

Just have to include the chart for next Thurs !


Next week ,after some mild days if not feeling relatively warm in places, set to cool down again towards the weekend. Looks like a lot of dry weather up until around Sunday. Models showing it to get very cold around Sunday from a Northerly plunge of Arctic air.

GFS showing it to get cooler earlier than the ECM from Weds. Will see.

Yeh. MT’s forecast not looking good on that front though.

Certainly a cold outlook in the models after the mild few days early next week, ECM showing some very cold widespread frosty nights next weekend, could turn wintry again out at the end of the run.

I'm astonished by the silence in here considering we're seeing charts like these:

The saying is: 'in like a lion, out like a lamb'.

March usually starts off poor as so close to winter but ends up milder as spring gets underway. Which usually happens in Ireland too - many years our coldest weather is very end of Feb and first few days of March.
