    Been dry all day in west Mayo,had some brief showers a while ago,very satisfying seeing the rest of the country get a proper dose of the muck for a change.

    P.s I'm learning Spanish.
    I'd advise others who take kindly to
    Palm trees,powder blue skies,and eating your dinner outside on July evenings to do the same.
    Its never going to change.

    Some very heavy showers all morning here in West Clare, not a drop of rain yesterday though! Got a 30km cycle in, was delighted.

    really hope that works out, sick of this cool, wet, windy, damp muck already.

    After yesterday's persistent rain, today was a fine day here with sunny spells and pleasant temperatures.

    Yep, the models are showing temperatures widely of 20-23c by Thursday 15th June across Ireland whilst the Azores High seems to take hold of Ireland by Tuesday 13th next week. If this continues as a trend, Summer could begin much earlier than I had intended.

    I love you, if you're right. I just hung my clothes out in that crazy wind, if they don't end up in Wales, they should be dry pretty soon, if it doesn't shower that is!

    Going to Kerry for a week Saturday 19th, please happen please happen :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,034 ✭✭✭Elmer Blooker


    Perfect conditions for some noctilucent watching tonight, visibility couldn't be better and I don't think the low moon will be a problem.
    Eyes looking north later! :)

    So Summer IS slowly coming....with warmer temperatures and rain...to begin


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 16,707 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gonzo


    I hope yous are all right, since the fine weather broke on Saturday 27th May things here have mostly been very poor with lots of rain and some very cool and windy conditions.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,506 ✭✭✭✭sryanbruen


    Azores High continuing to show its hand over Ireland next week on the latest run of the models.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,105 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC


    1.6mm this morning, stopped raining for the past hour. Looks like there won't be much for the rest of the day, was expecting more.

    Edit: Was very wrong.


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


    State exams started today so sun splitting the stones on the poor crathurs. Or maybe it's 16 degrees and raining.
