Ok I'll get it going - M2 Buoy has not updated since one o'clock today - any ideas why or does it do this from time to time.

I hope I'm in the right place. I noticed that big bank of cloud heading our direction form the nnw. Am I right in saying the wind is blowing ssw for it to reach Ireland? And if so is there a potential for the wind to change and for this to miss us altogether?

Obviously I realise that nothing is 100% at this stage but going on previous experience is there a chance this might happen?

I'm new to all this so forgive my ignorance.

Debateable She certainly rowed back from the "possible warmer spell before christmas" that got a mention earlier, so I'm assuming their latest models have scotched that idea.

Words like significant, disruption, SNOW, accumulations, cold, and the like were a lot more in evidence than they have been even earlier in the day. While not quite hitting the panic button yet, there is certainly a clear indication of unpleasant weather in the mix for the next 5 days.

She was quite clear that it looked "likely to remain cold right up until Christmas".
