Severe thunderstorm risk for south then central Leinster, east Munster

    Merge with existing thread on heat wave if desired, just wanted to have the orange warning in view.

    Front has activated overnight and severe thunderstorms are moving into south Leinster and east Waterford, likely to extend into central Leinster after 0800h.

    Main risks are intense and frequent lightning, and flash flooding from locally heavy rainfalls of 20-30 mm. Small hail is possible and wind gusts may become moderate but strong gusts seem rather unlikely.

    The activity is moving due north or even slightly west of that to start, then will track more north-northeast later this morning, eventually moving off the east coast altogether. At that point, another frontal trough will begin to activate and there could be locally heavy showers and t'storms moving west to east through north-central counties this afternoon.

    Just heard a huge rumble here over D7. Followed by a short shower. It’s stopped now.

    Have been hearing distant rumbles getting closer and closer from around 5:45 or so, South Cavan. Just had a nice shower of hail now, rumbles throughout.

    So many strike markers on Netweather.

    Persistent rumbles, North Dub.

    Sky is messy though.

    Dublin airport have obviously changed the flight plans. We rarely get planes over the city and they’re coming over loud and low now one after another under the clouds.

    Had a 20 minute spell with a lot of activity here in Kinnegad Co. Westmeath. One really close turned off electricity for a few seconds, then a lot of forked lightning nearby.

    Can hear rumbles in the distance now. (Getting louder as I type) Least I won't need to water the plants!

    Woke me up !! Prolonged rumbles of thunder ! I can see the odd few lightning strikes through the cloud but nothing intense on the lightning front . We have had a few sporadic showers also but nothing heavy ,Yet ..... the dogs are going insane here , and I’m hoping it doesn’t get so loud that it wakes the children !
    I can see clearer skies in the distance . How long is this due to last (Waterford ) ?

    Noise of the ****ers.

    Ditto in North Kildare. Nothing particularly special apart from the initial few flashes and bangs - just the odd distant flash and rumble but nothing frequent enough to keep me looking out the window. Rain pepped up for about a minute so the ground is now wet......it's that lame!

    All quiet now in D22. Is that it?

    Well that was short lived and rather disappointing, a few rumbles of thunder and a few decent flashes of lightening, and its moved north, rain wasn't even heavy either

    County Meath.
