    We don't have a yellow warning here in Wicklow, but most of the roads in Greystones and surrounds are flooded. Microbursts of torrential rain early this morning. Roads are almost at a stand still.

    Yes, clearly Wicklow should have been under the warning.

    Rain started about an hour ago here with 2mm recorded so far. It will be very interesting to see totals at my station in the next few days

    According to Ashford weather station its 40mm now. Wonder why wicklow not mentioned in warning. Seems a bit odd. Had to take alternative route to the school as my usual road flooded.

    Intensity of the rain in Waterford has def picked up. Watching the rate per hour increase on Waterford Weathers page. Just went from 4.2mm to 7.2mm


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


    It's a mix of showers and clear spells here in Wexford,we even had sunshine earlier after a wet night.
    My car was frozen at 10pm and it was gone up to 6c 2 hours later and then the rain started.

    Rain is relentless for the last 3/4 hours in Cork City. Rotten day.

    Level 2 ………….. is that similar to an Orange 'alert' ?!???

    Extreme weather index from ECMWF says mroe than a wet day, if the models are accurate then flooding is likely in some areas covered by Orange warning.

    Think Met Eireann have the location of the rain bands forecasted too far east. Also I think likely rainfall totals may not be massively high. I could be wrong. But unless theres some monster system out to sea I don't see the potential here for first wave of rain anyway


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,542 ✭✭✭✭ Supercell


    Screengrab from the WOW-ie page on Met.ie shows quite be variation in accumulation totals accross the country pretty well.

    Rainfall getting gradually heavier and heavier as the day drags on in cork city. Another heavy blast of rain now.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,086 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Palmr


    30 and 9 within a few miles of one another?

    It's tipping down in Waterford but the wind is the real villain in terms of misery.

    This shows how poor the rainfall coverage from radar is now that Shannon is down.

    Absolutely pouring down in Clonmel atm. Rain gauge already shows 20mm and yet the rainfall on ME is showing nothing.
