    Any chance the mild weather will return. Hate the cold.

    I wonder if that's because of the lightning near Maynooth.....I'm joking, of course but I wondered earlier why Kildare was omitted as it's been one of the wettest counties today, apart from Dublin and Wicklow.

    Think the GFS Parallel might be broken.

    Any reports of snow on the Wicklow mountains and surrounding area as it was showing up on the radar earlier?

    I drove in fhe dark on the N81 earlier (coming from Bohernabreena) to Blessington - nothing on the roads. Am at 200m so nothing here.

    We'll see in the morning about the hills!

    I was up that way at about 8pm passing Slieve Thoul, and it did hail but no snow. Came down through Bohernabreena on the way back and there were very heavy rain showers, but no snow for sure. It was about 5.5 degrees at the time.

    Currently hovering between 0.6c and 1c. Dew point 0c. If it holds at this temperature, possible snow from next showers.

    Torrential rain here for the last hour, dark cold and miserable morning


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,003 ✭✭✭Lucreto


    Kind of enjoying the cold rain. Its a break from the mild weather we get when it rains.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,204 ✭✭✭✭Say my name


    Blackstairs mountain is white with snow. :)

    I don't know about the rest of you but the last few week or so has been lovely in the west. Dry anyway with beautiful sunsets, clear evenings and starry skies.

    dreadful conditions here in Meath, very intense rainfall all through the night and still lashing right now. Lots of surface water, our driveway is completely waterlogged. Heading into Dublin soon so will report if there is any flooding.

    Lightened of here, field and driveway has drained away the earlier flood water, really was a miserable start to the day

    Belting down again

    just back from Dublin, rain isn't nearly as bad over the city. It was pouring rain with bits of sleet when I left this morning, much ligher over Dublin, then as I drove back, the rain is still very heavy around Dunshaughlin. Side roads here are partially flooded, it's been raining steady for more than 24 hours now.

    This weeks rainfall is going to be well above normal in parts of Leinster.

    Not a drop of rain or anything else here since last weekend. Cold and cloudy though.

    I can just imagine if it was a few degree's colder, we would have serious snow here, there would be well over a foot of snow if all the rain for past 24 hours fell as snow.

    Currently 4C with cold rain continuing. Some of the very heavy bursts have had bits of sleet in them, could see the sleet on the car windscreen this morning.

    A cold and wet day in Castlebar, 4.8C outisde, it was nice to have the last 4 days dry and crisp though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,685 ✭✭✭Mobhi1


    After heavy rain earlier it seems to have stopped now. It's 4.4C.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,827 ✭✭✭fred funk }{


    Some serious rain/hail showers South Wicklow at the moment.


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 16,750 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gonzo


    rain still falling here but has lightened off alot, currently raining for about 28 hours now.

    After a very mild and wet first 16 days of November, the dry respite was very short lived here and now another intense area of rain since sunrise yesterday monring, this is going to end up probably the wettest month of the year at my location.

    same out here... when we crossed back on Monday, the ferryman opined that the cold and the kind of cloud formation presaged snow.

    Very wet day in Dublin with lots of surface water.

    still raining here, been raining non stop here since about 9am yesterday. Gutters are all overflowing and water-logging throughout the driveway, garden is starting to feel more like a swamp. Easily 30+ continuous hours of rain here now.

    next week is starting to look very unsettled too, this is one incredibly wet month at my location.
