    What are the chances of Wednesday evening in Dublin not turning out to be the total washout Met Eireann are predicting? :D

    I'd say pretty nailed on in this timeframe but you never know!

    very wet afternoon and feeling chilly. We've lit the fire for the evening.

    A right downpour here right now! You'd have to feel for the punters at Forbidden Fruit and Bloom too but that's an Irish bank holiday in summer for ya! A miserable 13c.

    No rain whatsoever here in West Clare today, just cool and cloudy, although hazy sunshine breaking out now.

    Very windy at the moment in Cork I see, the airport reporting 23knots gusting up to 33knots.

    Why do they even bother arranging things like Forbidden Fruit in this country? I didn't go with my friends purely because the idea of getting lashed on in a field for a day doesn't appeal to me at all! Every bloody summer I spend here I am still surprised at how bad our weather is. Usually because we have a mild April and May, and then it turns into bloody monsoon season. So. F*cking. Depressing. I'm just racking my brain here thinking of ways to emigrate, retirement probably wont be for at least 20 years. ARGH.

    I got burnt at bloom on Friday. Some days it rains some days it don't. That's life.

    Shocking, as bad a bank holiday Monday as I can remember tbh, it hasn't stopped raining here on the coast since half 8 this morning.

    Rain has arrived in north meath, cloudy wet evening


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,033 ✭✭✭who_ru


    More of the same for the week ahead. Classic Irish summer time. Grey, wet, dull. Chucking it down in Limerick.

    I can imagine it very easily. I can't imagine anyone paying to come here on holidays *for the weather*, but that's a different deal, and many people don't really care about rainy weather all that much.

    Sometimes though it stays like this for weeks on end. I'd say you can barely see 2 feet in front of you around the scenic coastal sites! It's really a lottery visiting here, this type of weather would ruin a holiday for me.

    Had to put the warm jacket on today in Tralee, just getting up to 13.7C , currently 11.8C and quite windy this evening although nice to see it brightening up.

    If you're coming for the pubs, restaurants, nightlife, or cultural buildings (museums etc) I doubt the weather makes too much of a difference. Like I said, people don't book holidays to Ireland for the weather.

    I don't know where you live but it's like this more often than not in Ireland, especially in the west.

    Was down in Spain all weekend. Glorious weather hot dry and sunny. Back to this muck this evening.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,071 ✭✭✭pad199207


    Relentless heavy rain here in D20


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 16,625 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gonzo


    still lashing here, been pouring rain since about 3.30pm. Lots of water in our driveway now. Today is even wetter than last Saturday already.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,047 ✭✭✭Clonmel1000


    Was on the M7 and M8 earlier really horrendous evening for driving. Temp was hovering around 11/12 degrees it's Ireland I know but still its ridiculous how crap our summer weather is most of the time.
