{Northern Regions Thread}Cold Week ahead, snow possible

Looks like parts of NI could see up to 40cms going by the latest BBC forecasts.


Heres the Latest Met UK Warning.

Heavy rain will spread northwards across Northern Ireland on Thursday night, and will turn increasingly to snow later in the night and during Friday. Highest snow accumulations of 30 cm or more are likely to be across the hills of Antrim and Down, with strong to gale force southeasterly winds giving drifting and blizzard conditions. Accumulations of 10 cm or so are possible at low-level, though towards the east coast rain and sleet will be more prevalent, with a risk of localised flooding.

The public should be prepared for the possibility of severe disruption, particularly to transport and to power supplies.

Heres MET.IEs take on it
Snow-ice Warning for Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal
Rain, sleet and snow mix will give some lying snow accumulations especially on hills but also at some lower levels. There will be blizzards and drifting in the strong winds.

Issued:21 March 2013 06:00
Valid:21 March 2013 21:00 to 24 March 2013 03:00

See the other thread for M.Ts thoughts on it.

Should be quite an event for those there.
Let the Games begin

SW Donegal is getting heavier precipitation than any other places , the showers must be intensifying as a result of Donegal bay?

That looks like Scotland to me. The Rangers top backs up my suspicions.
