Big Freeze Continues - Discussion here ( All Ireland ) - 3/12/2010 onwards

Please use this for discussion on the Big Freeze.

Will this front drop anything across the country? Or will it be too light.

This thread is to be used for all parts of Ireland.

Just a heads up to say that the real front should only be hitting the west now.

Here is the state of things at 12, according to NAE Model.

Possible for 4-6cm of extra snow for the Midlands and east. Possibly turning sleety in the southeast before it clears.

Some signs of the weather staying cold and possibly getting very cold at times out to 7 days, there will a slight thaw however during the next 7 days during the daytime.

Each time a milder spell looms into view it keeps getting put back by the models. Met Eireanns latest update is an upgrade for more snow/wintry precip and only minor thawing for much of the country.

Yes and you can do that in here! I don't think we are large enough for Regional threads.

I personally hate them, because they split people up and you can loose good contributors etc.
