    Never had the chance to make the season thread before so said I would this time!

    New month, new season, new thread new weather adventures? Will we have a stormy Autumn or a calm autumn? Excited to find out!

    Time to start the discussion, currently about 12 degrees in Cork City and partly cloudy!

    Where are we as regards ice melt for the season ?Was it another loss? I would imagine from now on it should start to increase.

    Sorry sleetandsnow not exactly Autumn discussion but not sure where to ask.

    Hopefully this autumn will be dry. I could really do with a break from all the rain we got over the summer

    Calm and dry in Dublin, looks like it'll get to 20c later. That'll do pig.

    Oh what fresh hell is this?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,409 ✭✭✭ Danno

    That was a long 92 days on you, wasn't it? :D

    Back at the ranch, it was a misty morning before some sunshine and then overcast with some drizzle before sunset. Really notice the days starting to shorten now.

    Looking forward to some settled weather with high pressure expected to build over the weekend.


  • Registered Users Posts: 798 ✭✭✭ seamusk84


    I thought we were looking at a nice dry weekend from Thursday in the East.
    Met Éireann going on now about blustery showers and cold conditions....Bloody hell!

    Welcome Autumn 2020!

    With the amount of rain we had in summer 2020 some dry, sunny weather even if chilly would be very much appreciated.

    Don't let us down like Summer 2020 did!

    I've a feeling it will be a fairly standard Autumn with maybe one or two dry spells and average rainfall, hopefully nothing like last year's endless deluges.

    If its like last year we are snookered. The ground is saturated. The amount of rain we had in summer was unreal. Surely we are due a dry spell? Although silly me this is Ireland so I should never presume such a thing.

    after tomorrows rain things won't be too bad in terms of rainfall, mostly showers and some areas could stay dry completely. There is a fair bit of ridging in FI, the possibility of high pressure next week and then another ridge possible the week after. However just about every ridge or high pressure has gone pear shaped since June so we shall see.

    Agree - watching the water build up quickly as it flows off the grass onto my ground floor balcony. Looking at the radar it should die down in a few hours.

    Wet + windy here now. Usually the start of September is dry and sunny :(. Like others have said, we will be in serious trouble if it doesn't dry up soon, flooding could be quite bad this winter as the ground hasn't been properly dry since early June, whenever the ground did dry up in the summer, it got wet again soon after.
