Heavy Snow - Midlands, West, North 5 - 15cm+

Very disruptive snowfall in the Midlands, West and North over the next 48hrs. Anything up to 15cm's - locally more. Be careful when driving and please post pictures!


Elsewhere rain will clear Wednesday morning (possibly sleet and snow for a time Tuesday Night). Milder then recently with temperatures up to 8 or possibly even 9C in the far South. Lower further North generally 2 - 4C but near 0C in the North and Northwest.

It's basically North of anywhere on the warm front




There will certainly be snow North of that front.

Quite a nice morning here. No frost on grass. Temp about -1. Slight breeze. Could describe it as a pleasant morning.

Not waiting for snow as the last time I waited it stalled at the border about 10 miles south of me.

Just wondering if it gets to me will my position 1 mile from the coast have a negative effect ?

Wakey wakey Pangea, Graces7 and Harp. There's a front acoming!!

Where is Graces7? Between her and Owenc missing, the place is just not the same!

1.7c here atm, DP -2.3c. Good stats but I'm pretty sure they'll go pear shaped as front moves up. Hoping for nothing (but watching ).

I expect all you boardies in the west will think of your favourite neighbours in the east and be wishing the snow to pass over Kildare

Feels milder and breezy here this morning. Rain not far away I fear. Better luck to you more northern guys.

I think Donegal and west Mayo have the best chance of longer spells of snow tonight at the furthest extent of the cold air. Further south should be rain - and a lot of it, except over mountains. The higher Wicklow mountains could get 10-15cms of snow by morning

IF it does snow here I am going to pretend to be completely surprised. As the day gies on the ramping wiill increase I guess but I will resist the temptation.

Awww. Eugene Lambert has died. Bosco would have enjoyed the snow.

Am I totally deluded in thinking that if esat winds increase, it will drag in colder air and good DPs from the UK to give more favourable conditions for the east (inland from the sea)?

E.g. M2 Bouy is 4c/-2c atm and Valley -1c/-4c.

Looks to me like the front may move up a little quicker than forecast?
