Possibly turning much colder next week

From Sunday a polar maritime bias in the flow of weather is expected and this means frost and ice. Temperatures are likely to struggle around or below freezing at night and be very limited to low single figures by day which means frost and ice may be persistent through daylight hours. Showers, increasingly wintry, will also affect the country. This could be the start of a very prolonged cold spell of weather with snow increasingly likely. I will post in more detail with charts later today.

It could only get colder - the last few days have been so mild I could have BBq'd the Turkey out the back

As with most of DM2's post about cold, a major health warning should be attached - emphasis on the word "could" noted. Looking at the 6am run of the GFS, there is no major cold forecast for Ireland right up to the 9th Jan 2012. Sorry to disappoint any cold lovers

ha! If anything can be predicted in for foreseeable future its that the high pressure area that's been centred around Biscay will not be moved one way or the other.
