A week to 10 days or so coming up where the best we can hope for is some cold zonal weather or a northerly toppler until the remaining vortex energy crosses the Atlantic.

After that anything could happen, though by the end of February the chances of any prolonged cold and snowy spells starts to grow quite thin.

Shades of December 2010 if that comes off.

Yes I'm glad that we are getting a break from the snow as well. Travel in and out of Belfast has been a complete nightmare the last seven days. Not saying I don't want more snow but I'm just glad for the break at the mo! Least it's not boring with rain and storms forecast.

It was fun in the run-up to the snow event and while the snow was fresh, but then it iced over and became dangerous. The rain is welcome. However, despite the downpour there is still a considerable amount of lying snow. Next week could be interesting for different reasons.

Some serious flooding on the mountain road between Cookstown and Claudy! Some parts of the road had a foot of water on it and rivers coming from the fields! Now if this was snow falling from the sky then I'd say this would have been something special! Hopefully see the cold back in February!

To be honest,what some of us had in the east the last week was special! Never known it to snow heavy continuously for approx 10 hrs on two separate days within the space of three days. I had at least 6-8 inches on the ground since last fri until last night! Not bad for a cold spell in this country! More than we could ask to be honest. But as u say here's hoping everybody sees some before winter is done. As time is now marching on.

I'm glad of the milder weather for now too. Can't top my heating up for a couple weeks and just about to run dry, so good.

Anyone know what time it is?

It's whiskey time.

Had offers to play snooker for money tonight but had a night out planned, so making them wait.

Anyone any more ideas for the Ireland meetup? I'd like it to be a single night, at a time when nothing much is happening (ie holidays, etc), somewhere in the middle so an equal distance for those on each side of the border. Enniskillen could be a good shout.

There's been little or no mention of the lows heading our way this coming week except in relation to wheher they do (or do not) have bearing on a future cold spell, yet-they look nasty, the GFS in particular looking quite dramatic. We're in the firing line.

It's very wild here in Celbridge this evening, and also at Casement, whereas at Dublin Airport things are much calmer.

DUBLIN AIRPORT SSE 16 kts

CASEMENT SSE 29 gust 41 kts

Most likely a Föhn effect from the mountains.

Meanwhile that storm has brought 64 knot sustained speeds, gust 78 knots, to Vestmannayjaer, southern Iceland at 1800Z.
