Snow Ice Warning for Ireland 29 Jan to 03 Feb 2019 *See Mod Note in OP *

Areas most at risk: Connaught, West Munster, Ulster

Anticipated hazards:
  • Heavy snow showers
  • Low night time temperature
  • Ice


Possible warning level(s): Yellow, Orange


Good cross model agreement now for early next week and the warning period starts within 72 hrs. From Monday evening, through Tuesday and most of Wednesday wintry showers turning readily to snow and there is a risk of disruption in the western half of the country. This looks like extending further east in to Leinster (particularly north Leinster) for Tuesday.

Snow showers more isolated elsewhere. Likely scattered thunderstorms also.

Night time temperatures between -6 and -1c away from windward coasts of the Atlantic with sharp frosts and ice issues.

Moderate northwesterly breezes.





Precipitation



Dew Point



Tuesday temperatures



Tuesday windchill

Hope you and the GFS are right. For me, the uppers just aren't low enough for snow to all levels. All other models showing between -4 and -7 rather than the magic -8.
ECM in particular keeping -8 a good bit away from us throughout.

Still think it will be a nowcast between a sloppy mess and very cold, miserable rain.

Above 250m of course, snow for sure.

(I really hope I'm wrong)

I’m hoping the 29th evening stroke night will give us the goodies. Model consensus - on Tuesday.

Cold that’s what we need for it to snow but more importantly for the snow to stay, that SSW drip feed will deliver a cold one - probably a few milder blips but overall it’ll be cold next week and please please please freezing proper winter the week after.

I would have to agree with you. I just see the uppers being too marginal for our liking , I hope this changes
