    Just as you post it increases to 67km/h!

    Great to have the live webcam (as opposed to webcams that update say every minute), I can see the streetlight shaking!

    Blowy but nothing that might threaten a greenhouse.

    a sudden squall just hit east-clare, wheelie bins blown over and torrential rain...came out of nowhere!

    Showing signs of brightening here in North Clare. The rain has stopped however in the last 30 minutes the wind has started to pick up. It seems to be picking up relatively quickly. It looks like we might get further squalls.

    74km/h at 9.58am is my highest gust so far here north east of Kilkenny City.

    A strong looking squall line crossing the country.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,634 ✭✭✭✭Graces7


    .... and here comes the wind, gusts that are shaking the roof all over again.. No respite in the rain.. horizontal now.

    Was briefly out and the streams are a sight to behold, racing and rushing...

    We can't rule out an isolated damaging wind gust with the squall line but I think the system has failed to develop enough mixing down to bring the very strong winds to the surface (at least the lower elevation surface, up top of some hills it will likely gust to level 2 but that's not unusual).

    It looks powerful on satellite but there's no low pressure centre, just the slight troughing associated with the squall line. If a low forms (or had formed) then I could see the mixing and the wind gusts increasing. As things stand, Wexford could still see gusts above 110 km/hr and I think they will show up in the usual places in Wales in about 2 hours.

    Squall line would be more dangerous for wind if there was clearing and wind shear but it's embedded in a larger area of rain and cloud, probably a few gusts to near 50 knots in it.

    This is a really close call, I think the original level 2 forecast was justified even if it doesn't necessarily verify. Better to go that way than to say it would remain steady-state and have it explode at the last moment.

    This is worse than Doris for here (North west Wexford).
    Not much rain but Very Strong Winds.
    Wish I had a weather station to record it.:(

    Wasn't expecting this at all.

    I may start watching the weather forecasts and on here again!

    My mother just informed me she heard thunder as well?


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,096 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC


    Lashing again in West Clare! Not as heavy as earlier though.

    Some serious flooding around the West Clare area, seeing some pictures on Facebook now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,427 ✭✭✭squonk


    Seems to be a second squall line starting up out to the west. It's just hit us here in north Clare. Heavy rain passing through for five-ten minutes and the wind has risen very quickly on the back end. More rain out west so I think this might develop as a second line?


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,318 ✭✭✭✭M.T. Cranium


    The 06z GFS showing potential for level 2 winds on Wed 1st of March in Connacht and south Ulster, something to monitor on more reliable 12z model runs.

    Some really intense rain just east of Enniskillen now

    Must have been a noise caused by the wind maybe.

    71km/h still holding as max gust so far here. Regular gusts to 60km/h so nothing out of the ordinary really. Unless the squall to our West delivers something higher it's looking like another non event.

    Violent squal and very heavy rain here on M1 near castlebellingham
    Sheets of rain crossing motorway like a fog


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,656 ✭✭✭Darwin


    Squall line just passed through here (West Laois) about 15 minutes ago, blue skies and much calmer now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,880 ✭✭✭✭Rock Lesnar


    Sun is out and the wind has died, grand day now




  • Same here in Dundalk. Squall line came through, brief blast of heavy rain. Now lovely blue skies & sunshine. Changing Irish weather eh?!:)


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,776 ✭✭✭✭Larbre34


    Squall has hit Dublin 15, sheets of rain and gusty. Possibly a bit of short term flight disruption.
