    Glenteenassig is a stunning spot, I'm down in Castlegregory a few times a year and it's always on the list.

    the photos being posted here from the West are hard to believe, it's like another world, let alone another country or county. I'm so sick of the dark grey skies and rain which has plagued us since the start of the month. 2 weeks of Atlantic muck followed by an entire week of torrential rain and very cold temperatures, now we're going straight back into another minimum 2 weeks of Atlantic muck.

    Just been outside filling coal bucket then fetching turf ,,,, that wind is a knife of ice. To the east, a magnificent rose- gold rift in the heavy clouds as the sun broke through..

    The ocean is a mirror of calm.

    November so far has been wetter than all three summer months combined at Dublin Airport and by month's end it could be wetter than May-August... we only need 15.1mm more to achieve that.

    Yep, miserable in Dundalk again today. Those showers from the Irish sea are incredibly persistent. If it was only a bit colder......

    I've just totaled up the rainfall amounts for Dunsany, my local station, and so far this month the station has recorded 112.9mm of rain since November 1st, and with 5 more days of November yet to add to that total, I can see this month finishing on about 135mm or possibly more once this weeks rain is totaled.

    The normal showery weather in the west is now in the east. Another clear day here after 2.5 poor months.

    I know it mentions munster but reading that warning you would think cork kerry waterford were not listed. Only looking at the map really shows the counties listed


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 16,753 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gonzo


    I've decided to take a look at the rainfall amounts at Dunsany over a 6 month period prior to November 1st and this is what was recorded by Met Eireann.

    May 2018 - 31.2mm
    June 2018 – 11.4mm
    July 2018 – 41.9mm
    August 2018 – 56.6mm
    September 2018 – 42.9mm
    October 2018 – 52.8

    The total combined rainfall over the 6 month period of 1st May 2018 to 31st October 2018 is 236.8mm.

    The first 25 days of November has recorded 112.9mm which is close to half the amount of rain that we saw in the previous 6 months! Much of that rain has fallen over the past week alone!.

    Along with the associated humidity! Even when not raining it really has been rotten here the last few days.

    Bright and trés cold in Meath.

    This Atlantic weather front that is expected, did I see/hear some snow on higher ground reported on BBC weather of the week. How does that occur coming from the Atlantic?

    Plenty rain forecast to fill the wells.

    Wont be long now before the south west starts seeing the rain

    colder here and breezy already... west mayo offshore island


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 16,753 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gonzo


    managed to stay dry here all day with some pleasant sunshine. The shift in the winds to a more south-easterly direction shifted the showers further north with the wales shadow keeping us rain free. Despite being a dry day, the ground is still saturated but it was great to finally go outside and enjoy a proper walk.

    For curiosity sakes, here's Dunsany's November monthly rainfall totals from 1964 to 2017 (and 2018 up to the 26th) - including at its old manual station. It has no data for November 2007 so did not include.

    Here's the top 10 wettest from above:

    Data comes from Met Éireann.
