Big Freeze in early/mid February?

I know this topic is being discussed on a few threads but i thought it might be helpful to pull them into one thread. As I understand it (and I know nothing about weather) its a 50/50 at the moment as to whether there is some proper cold coming from roughly Friday 5 February onwards. What's the present educated guess of those of you more knowledgeable about such things? I know MT Cranium thinks it could happen and I note a few websites such as theweatheroutlook.com are still talking it up. What say you?

It's too far away at the moment, lots of things can change, just check the boards on a regular basis and the experts on here will give you a fair idea of what's going to happen nearer the time.

Yeah UKMO is totally gone pear shaped at T144.
GFS seems to have got the jitters while ECM is still up for it.
All up in the air as things stand, no pun intended

Considering that February is in 3 days time, then it may be a sign of the cold weather coming in.

Also, just had a phone call from the girlfriend and it's also hail stoning down in Enniskillen...

We have sunshine here in Limerick at the moment.

Is this is a sign that Limerick will be bypassed (again ) by any serious snow or is it a portent of a long hot summer?

The trend on the models is quite solid toward much colder conditions in the next 5 - 10 days from the East. The specifics are, of course, uncertain and will be uncertain for a good few days yet.

But the signs are very cold weather from the East is the most likely outcome in the next 5 - 10 days. Whether that is from a Southeasterly, a Northeasterly or an Easterly remains to be seen.
