    Strange seeing all the reports of the heavy rain in other parts of the country this week and again this morning and less than 1mm falling here in Tralee all week and dry this morning . Quite overcast and dull this morning , not much rain on radar showing up near us yet.

    Next week has the potential for some very windy and wet weather at times. The charts are chopping and changing but the theme is quite unsettled.

    The next week or two ain't looking good with plenty of rain with the Atlantic really taking charge.

    It's been a very wet week here, which I originally thought would have been a dry respite after 2 very wet and mild weeks previous to that..

    Dunsany is located about 5 miles from me, so this would be fairly accurate to what has been happening at my location. The easterly from the past few days has brought nothing but misery here with so much rain and very chilling feeling temperatures - the worse of both worlds. It all started on 19th November with some light showers initially.

    19th November - 0.9mm - max temp 9.3C
    20th November - 19.3mm - max temp 7.0C
    21st November - 27.6mm - max temp 5.5C
    22nd November - 3.9mm - max temp 7.4C

    The forum is like a ghost town for the time of year which probably says it all.

    OTD back in 1981 when there was 102 tornadoes reported in the UK!

    Maybe you should move to a warmer climate then ?


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


    That’s like saying the snow bunnies on here should move to a snowy colder climate? I mention I don’t like the cold on a weather forum your answer is move to a colder climate. Thanks for that. This forum is like an echo chamber at times.

    Weellllll, not quite. I think snow bunnies are usually also grand with the weather when it isn't snowing, they just would love to see snow.

    Enjoy it I know ye get a fair share of bad weather there. Dark cool day here rain on and off.

    torrential rain here again this evening, drains over flowing on the main street in Dunshaughlin and water running down both sides of main street, be careful if driving.

    The weather Gods have really had it in for us here this week with the wettest week I can remember in a long time.

    edit: a narrow band of extremely heavy rain has developed out of nowhere from the Irish sea and pushing extremely heavy rain in a narrow line from Balbriggan, through Ashbourne, Ratoath and Dunshaughlin, heading towards Kinnegad and dying out. Most of the rest of Ireland is dry and rain free.

    Can you imagine if it had been snow

    I've been thinking that since last Tuesday. It would rival the snow in eastern Northern Ireland in March 2013. We must have close to 70mm of rain here since Wednesday morning.

    Rain since early morning here


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


    Foggy and cold here. Frost on car. Everywhere saturated wet from the rain the last few days.

    Look at that lovely little strip of rain stretching from drogheda to kells on the rainfall chart, i can definitely confirm that its accurate
