WARNING:Risk Of Disruption,High Ground Snow/Ice Likely For Northern Regions, Sat/Sun.

Well the winter is turning out be incredibly mild.

I will open up this thread to replaced the ' Cold Reload Thread ' as any reload is not related to the original reason for the thread!

Mildish northwesterlies this week but then we see the PV move further east towards Scandinavia and the chance of a cold northwesterly and perhaps northeasterly for a time next weekend. In fact some charts show potential for a snow event towards next weekend as a small low moves across the south of Ireland drawing back some Arctic air to the north.

I am still hopeful we will get a snow event in the next 3-4 weeks.

I don't know GFS still showing a cool down.

A cold shot from the northwest, then a low to swing through under the weak ridge.

Consistent enough output.

The GFS Operational and control runs for that time frame are complete cold outliers though WC, and we know the record of them verifying this winter.





Those blue and green line go up and down faster than a *****'s knickers.

Another very poor ECM run tonight - the winter has really been astonishing in its complete lack of any seasonal weather. I can remember some stinkers in my time having lived through the 90's and most of the last decade, but this one really takes the biscuit!!

Yup; three air frosts this "winter" (1st, 2nd and 3rd February) here in mehish Sandyford. (there was also one back in mid-November)

That is an all time record (going back nearly 40 years) for me

Of course, back in the day, we weren't tormented by modellers relentlessly predicting imminent "cold reloads"!

(I'd have thought you'd have to have discharged something in the first place to talk about "reloading"!)

So, this is very much an even milder version of Winter 73/74 without the Storms. (I'm talking East Coast - the "Dublin Storm" of 2012 was a complete miss)

Let's hope for a sunny dry spring and hot sunny summer

I think 1988/1989 may have beaten 1973/1974 Bill. It did Nationally anyway.

Onwards to Cold!

I'd like to thank all the Gods who ensured that my quarter tank of oil bought back in the beginning of October barely has a dent in it and that it will stay that way till next October. Begone, nasty snowminators!!

I think anyone still hoping for snow is not in the real world. Not a chance of it now, winter is well and truly done.

That's quite the statement

There is always the possiblity of snow. March has seen it's share of snow. Can't see it happening. But when it comes to weather I can't see beyond my nose. So who knows
