    Thought this deserved its own thread since theres a threat of some very heavy rain and thunderstorms :)

    50mm at times likely.

    It has recently been downgraded from a nationwide event to an event that doesn't cover the west coast.

    Update: Orange warning added for thunder

    It feels explosively close out there today, but I've never known whether it's a misconception to connect that with an increased possibility of thunderstorms?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,306 ✭✭✭ SleetAndSnow


    It's cloudy with some sunshine in Cork City. Not a drop of rain yet but I don't think we are expected to get much here


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,306 ✭✭✭ SleetAndSnow


    Updated OP with the new orange warning. If a mod could update the prefix to reflect this maybe?

    Rather cool with a chilly onshore wind in inchicore, Dublin. Cool enough to need a top. Moderate to heavy rain less than a kilometre away.

    Looks like we missed that shower here in Dublin 5! Only a few drops of rain earlier in the morning.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,810 ✭✭✭✭ Kermit.de.frog


    Sferics now over County Wexford.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,859 ✭✭✭ Artane2002


    Donegal looks like the place to be at the moment if you like thunderstorms.

    North Donegal here.
    All fine and sunny at present....1hr into the orange alert period.

    Maybe they have their window wrong?

    Starting to rain now in Ballsbridge


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,695 ✭✭✭ Say my name


    There was an active cell in Wexford but it seems to be gone quiet again.

    It brought much needed rainfall at least.

    Lovely bit of Thunder and Lightning here in Letterkenny for the last half hour to an hour. Loud too!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,163 ✭✭✭ dinorebel


    Best thunderstorm in years here in Letterkenny


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,810 ✭✭✭✭ Kermit.de.frog


    I reckon there should be an orange warning for South Dublin/North Wicklow for potential flash flooding in the next few hours.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,306 ✭✭✭ SleetAndSnow


    Looks like a few strikes in Letterkenny alright and near Ballybofey.

    Looks like a large rain area forming over Dublin and Wicklow
