    To be fair, yellowLabrador seems to be offering helpful advice as the wording of grace7s reply did suggest a sense of fear or worry, Especially to any posters who are unaware of her background. The advice given was sound

    assuring you I am not scared or w orried. If I were I would not have chosen as I did to live here, to return to the type of weather I lived in on a North Sea island. It is where I belong,l weather and all!

    I think what happens is that readers project their emotions on how others live.

    We work together here. Especially us round-the-year residents. No one here is immune to damaging weather. If there is need we help each other.

    Please. by all means put me on ignore? I simply record what the weather is here! As I have been doing all my years on boards.

    Last night was bad. Loud and noisy. Fact. OK? OK!

    In Donegal at the moment and its a really wild night out there, first real windy night of the season. I've been off the grid a bit recently in terms of keeping up with the weather but just had a look at the models and looks like plenty more wildness on the way

    Living your name! Donegal can cook up a storm but West |Mayo equals it

    I wonder could 25c be recorded in the Dublin area tomorrow afternoon?
    If the high ground can break up the cloud to give good sunny spells then it is very possible with the tropical air over the country?
    If it stays cloudy temps will be around 22c I'd say?

    hopefully some sun and warmth tomorrow.

    Today is the first decent day since I arrived home on Tuesday. Decent sunny spells all day and feeling warm at times.

    Cloudy in Tralee all day but still a lovely autumn day.

    This image (from Icelandic Met Office) shows the 850 hPa temperature anomaly averaged over the 10 day period of the latest ECM run:

    Very rare to see such a large swathe of cold air over the sub Arctic/N. Atlantic region at this time of year, and given the still very warm anomalies over Europe and southern regions of the N. Atlantic, the potential for some real Autumnal weather being thrown our way over this period is quite real.

    Lovely afternoon and evening
    Breezy but pleasant all the same

    What I find interesting (and somewhat confusing) about this is the CFS continues to show a weak Polar Vortex through this Autumn and getting very significant by November despite this Atlantic SST profile.

    NAO not looking like going negative any time soon, even though it has already been in a record long run of positivity since April. Getting a bit ridiculous now.

    Heavy rain here already. Yesterday was sheerly lovely so we had a break, but a dark morning now. West Mayo offshore island


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,678 ✭✭✭SleetAndSnow


    Rotten Monday morning in cork city. Dark and wet.

    Just read MT and his "sporadic light rain in the west" is falling as a torrential downpour

    Certainly wasn't sporadic light rain here in Galway earlier! Looks fairly organised to me looking at the radar!

    Dry and cloudy here in Dublin.


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


    Just been outside awhile and rain has held off but wind rising in great gusts . Warm though which is very welcome.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,678 ✭✭✭SleetAndSnow


    Rain stopped in cork city. Starting to get very gusty though.

    Edit: Just walked to the shop and a few gusts actually stopped us from moving for a second, pretty strong. Saw a plane struggling to land aswell.

    Blustery and wet in Castlebar, steady drizzle after some heavy showers early this morning, looks like it will be an interesting day.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,132 ✭✭✭pad199207


    Sun out in d8


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,530 ✭✭✭✭sryanbruen


    Fairly persistent drizzle in Balscadden Bay, Howth for my Geography field study.

    sun appearing here now, windy, dry and warm. Temperature currently 20C.


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


    watching large raindrops racing past the glass door diagonally.. in great swathes. hypnotic. ferocious gale. West mayo, offshore island


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,938 ✭✭✭OldRio


    The rain stopped at lunchtime and now the temperature has risen. The wind is gusting strongly blowing leaves from the trees.
    Autumnal look but far too warm for an autumnal feel.


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,709 ✭✭✭✭Cantona's Collars


    Warm and humid with a bit of a breeze here in Wexford. My missus is complaining about it being a bit nippy in the wind. I dunno.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,146 ✭✭✭✭km79


    It’s warm anyway !


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,530 ✭✭✭✭sryanbruen


    Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning.

    Sunny but with lots of cloud around here in Dublin 5.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,085 ✭✭✭✭Oscar Bravo


    A bright afternoon here in Castlebar with nice sunshine at times but the wind has increased strong and gusty. Very mild despite the wind.
