Wintry spell with Snow and Ice warnings week of 20-3-17

This is probally in response to the recent SSW.

A nice Terribly cold wintery outbreak for next week.

To early to say but a very unstable easterly from Wednesday with a low in the Irish sea.

Maybe a lot of very wet snow Showers.

Ah please. Firstly, what are you talking about, SSW? There was no SSW. There was a stratospheric warming which was not up to the standard of a SSW. Sorry, SSW is just a very technical and strict definition .

Secondly, it's March like. Go away snow. Roll on the settled, dry and warm weather of next weekend!

it's kinda depressing we are getting this now, not 2 months ago. Hopefully there won't be many showers.

Was just going to put up that chart, wont be putting away the winter clothes yet!

IMO Will certainly see white mountain tops from this . As for lower lying snow there is a fair bit of precipitation predicted at various times and with those cold night time temperatures you would expect some snow during the dark hours. Temperature during the day would seem too high for snow to stick, possibly wintry sleety stuff. Will be watching out for Cb's tomorrow with a risk of hail and thunder. Interesting spell of weather.

The Jet giving a helping hand bringing all that cold air mass over the country the week coming .



Very cold 500 hPa Temps , polar low perhaps ?



Looks like plenty of precipitation feeding down over the country at times.

Its unfortunate that there is a lot of energy coming out of North America. But with this cold plunge the setting up of high pressure over us, we could also see a more prolonged cool period but with clear blue skies over Ireland later in the week.

I cant muster any enthusiasm for snow at this time of year, that might leave a dusting overnight, which is all gone by late morning the next day.

I'd muster excitement from a few hailstones at this stage. I feel sorry for all the primary school children here who are too young to remember 2010 in any detail, it hasn't snowed here in West Clare in years.

The latest GFS charts for Tuesday night are stunning.....taking them with massive pinches of salt though. It's showing significant accumulations of snow in many parts, especially the midlands.

Arpege is not quite buying it however it is showing that the guts of a foot of snow will accumulate on the Dublin/Wicklow mountains next week.

Showers of sleet in the forecast for Dublin, Knock and Shannon airports from tomorrow evening, with Belfast even forecasting a chance of snow!

Snow very possible Monday night in to Tuesday to lowest levels and then a bigger chance of more prolonged frontal snow.
