    Actually feels cold outside. This evening and tomorrow looks cold relatively speaking for the time of year.
    If we end up having a cold autumn the fuel reserves Will need a good looking at..

    Is this the outcome of the potential Thursday storm, docarch?

    I was having trouble keeping track of what was coming to get us this week although that yoke we got yesterday probably made things harder to call.

    Sort of....

    What will bring today's rain is a deepening area of low pressure (a 'wave depression') which will track over the south of Ireland today/this evening and head into the UK. Likely to bring strong winds to Wales and southern England later (and possibly along the east/south east coast of Ireland later).

    Other than rain, effects on Ireland will not be anywhere near as severe as yesterday, so I would not expect ME to name a storm. The UKMO might?

    I hope the councils are out cleaning those roadside drains before this rain arrives because i really noticed on my cycle in this morning, how many are completely blocked from yesterday.

    Also is it possible to have drought and flood warnings in place in the same counties ;).

    Yes, since Storm Ali passed yesterday the weather has turned much colder and really autumnal.

    I’m in San Diego currently and if there’s a nicer climate than this I’ve yet to experience it. It’s absolutely fabulous.

    Well it’s absolutely miserable here
    As it has been for most of the past 2 months since the rain dances started

    Land around here is “fierce wet “ now apparently and doesn’t bode well for the winter !


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,880 ✭✭✭✭Rock Lesnar


    Just starting raining here, had a little drizzle earlier, feels cold, might have to switch the heating on yet


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,880 ✭✭✭✭Rock Lesnar


    Stove has been lit :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,778 ✭✭✭✭ninebeanrows

    Decent climate (I have relatives who live there and visited them frequently when I lived in San Francisco), although they have really gloomy May/June months with heavy marine layers, and the ocean water is surprisingly cool thanks to the California Current.

    If you like a dip in the ocean, as I do myself, the California coast can be a bit disappointing in that regard. To put it in perspective, even the beaches of New York have ocean temperatures a good 4-5 degrees warmer!

    There's also the whole wildfire problem...

    Yep, the dull weather in May/June is even given a name - The June Gloom. It's kind of like what happens on the east coast of England when we/they get warm easterlies at those months.

    This wouldn't look out of place in November to be honest. Sunday looks even worse!
