    My sister was on the EK163 flight from Dubai and it was hit by that strike.
    She said between the bang ang and flash it frightened the life out the people onboard.

    Lightning for the last couple of hours off the NW, wonder will some come close to or over land.

    Met Eireann mentioning it ' Rain will clear eastwards to scattered showers tonight with the risk of hail and sleet on northern hills. Some of the showers will be heavy and blustery across the west and northwest later, with the ongoing risk of hail and lightning

    Two lightning strikes in the last 5 minutes or so in Mayo. Thunder seemed to come a good bit after.

    Heard that as well, some big blustery showers about today, some of hail.

    Risk of hail and thunder tomorrow more so in the SW I think but most of the lightning if it occurs could happen over water or near the coasts. Some convection might get a lift off the mountains in Kerry giving some lightning. Will see.

    Cold mid level and upper level air temperatures should provide half decent lapse rates, perhaps a very mixed profile but should encourage good convection and produce hail and wintry precipitation. Mountain tops should see a bit of a whitening.

    If this is correct it was some serious strike.

    Sneem is without power at the moment. There were 3 or 4 strikes, very intense and very powerful, power went within a second of the first strike.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,884 ✭✭✭SlowBlowin


    Must have been some strike, 2 more faults on the map now.

    Edit : 8 ESB faults now from the strike, over 15 km apart.

    Very well defined squall line has developed recently, currently stretching from Belfast in the North East to Kerry in the South West. M.T. did mention the possibility of one developing in a recent forecast.


  • Registered Users Posts: 961 ✭✭✭Longing


    The squall line is from Kerry to Aberdeen in Scotland now.
