Snow risk on Wednesday

Hi all,


There is a snow risk countrywide on Wednesday of this week. Currently this looks to be temporary with rain by Thursday morning but this is subject to change.


Wednesday itself will start mostly dry and frosty. Rain soon into the Southwest will gradually extend Northeastward interacting with stationary Artic air over the country. This is likely to give snow for a time across the midlands, east and north and parts of the west aswell. Amounts are not likely to be significant but they don't have to be to cause disruption.


Like I say this is subject to change but something to keep an eye on. More Later.

Uppers look too warm for many except for Owen for a time but then again i don't really trust any model beyond 24 hrs at the moment.















All not lost down the road yet either as other signals suggest,the waiting game continues..........................................

GFS is somewhat colder over the Northern half of the country then the UKMO. It's a marginal situation and really it will be down to nowcasting I think. Any snow should not last too long though.

So it seems to be high ground most at risk at this stage, with the possibility of some intensity induced snow at lower levels.

Roll on next winter.

You're posting here long enough to know that's not at all weird.

Dont think this is anything to look forward to people, currently 4.3 degrees here in dublin, got down to -0.6 here and that was with no clouds.

If we do see anything it will either be wet snow or sleet.
Sorry fokes.

Hyperbole.... In some cases there was almost none..

Understatement ... In some cases it was weeks..

I think its more than likely considering the meto have a warning out and it looks to be snow the whole way through for me xc weather state this so do bbc weather infact the bbc weather man said that some places in ni would see snow the whole way through and thats what the graphics showed its bound to happen too since we are so close to scotland and our right on the coast further north than troon etc which are having snow the whole way through..

looks that way the east looks like a good candidate for snow but not sure how long it will last, maybe a couple of hours.
