1st weekend, 2nd week of March - changes coming

Hi all!

It's pretty quiet in here atm understandably nothing tremendously exciting having occured this last week. And nothing exciting is going to occur this coming week either. It's more of the same for much of the coming week but turning more unsettled next weekend. Relatively mild throughout particularly up to Wednesday when temperatures will still be reaching the dizzy heights of 12 or 13c. Gradually cooler thereafter.


It's early days but signs are big changes are evolving in the weather for next weekend onward although timing is skewed across the models. There is reasonable agreement that a much colder Northwesterly flow should initially become established bringing a period of polar maritime conditions and wintry showers, return of night time frosts.

Here the track diverges on what happens next. ATM a continuation of polar maritime regime seems more likely however there is also a lower chance of Northeasterlies becoming established aswell as pressure builds to the Northeast. Watch this space. There is some confidence across the models right now. And no matter what happens we may well see this place light up like a Christmas tree again toward the end of the week!

Love it Darkman, good stuff.

I look forward to you starting a thread at the end of July...."Possible cold snap early August"

Now for all the gloom merchants to spoil it.....

Tis is a long way out.

I'm hoping it stays mild. Days are getting longer. Shorts are coming back into fashion and Northerly flow may just mean we will be cold and wet.

No real specifics yet but looks like we might actually get a bit of active weather again from next weekend. I'd take anything at this stage really, as long as its a break from this misty drizzle we've had almost constantly for the entire month in the north west

The trend has being for a colder start to spring in the models over the last 2 weeks, well in FI, But they are starting to show a NE flow if it keeps going with this trend for the next few days, who knows what could happen maybe winter could be making up for lost time

I don't think my heart could cope with the charts going back and forward! I'm all for the weather to move onto the next season now

For weather fans who most of the visitors in here are its been such a boring 12 months of weather. The seasons have more or less disappeared with very little variations. Something has to give at some stage. Maybe this cold spell will happen but i fear the weather will continue as is. We need some sort of weather event to restore interest.

at this stage i'd rather the mild continue and keep building into a warm and sunny summer saving the proper cold stuff for next winter.

I wished it worked that way Gonzo but its Ireland we live in, who knows what the summer will bring, but im sure most of us would love a decent cold blast in the next few weeks to make up for the rubbish winter and this non weather we are stuck in the last few weeks.
