    Being honest, the met.ie app is as good as anything at this remove. I've pasted below what it is currently saying for Sligo for Saturday. From MT's forecast it does sound like it will be cooler with passing showers. At 4 days away hard to be accurate. Certainly one of the better days this week but that might be damning it with feint praise...

    Well I gave in +drove to school this morning, couldnt be out in that!

    Don't know what it's like in other parts of country but more stormy here in NCD then during those other named 'storms'.

    Mace head gusting 54 knots (100 km/h) at 10am. Rare to get such strong winds from a south easterly direction.

    72 km/h sustained winds at Belmullet, solid orange territory.

    very windy in Meath but at least it's mild. We may have to wait a while to get sunny Spring days back as the following 7 to 10 days are looking very unsettled with no shortage of rainfall. The first week of March has probably been my favourite week of weather since the July heatwave with bags of sunshine and very frosty nights. But as of now the Atlantic is back in business and may dominate for the rest of March with a very positive AO and NAO forcast for the next 2 weeks, however I am hoping the final week of March things may begin to warm up and settle down.

    Surprisingly gusty this morning the bins went flying even though I had them fairly well secured against a wall. Really heavy squally shower just passed through (SW Laois). Looks to be a cold day tomorrow once the front passes through and the winds become easterly.

    Plenty of lightning in those showers crossing the country

    Amazing Mammatus over Galway when I was driving home around 4:30pm, some of the best I've seen in Ireland. Couldn't get home quick enough to get my camera before they moved away.

    Wicklow mountains could get a right dumping tomorrow evening, could be interesting in some inland areas above 100m or so in the east.

    Most models are keeping the snow exclusively to the Wicklow Mountains so I'd say anywhere above 400 meters should do well, not expecting anything other than cold rain or sleet at lower levels. The GFS is on it's own with some low level snow in the south-east away from the coast.

    Probably right, would be nice to see the mountains white one last time this side of summer. The cold can bugger off before paddies though please.

    Was looking at the cctv this morning when one of those showers went over. Could see the line of monsoon like rain moving in a line up the street where water was just bouncing off the street and cars. Probably one of the worst I've seen. One minute there and then it move on the same way.

    One nasty squall line just west of Limerick now.




  • Registered Users Posts: 3,035 ✭✭✭redsteveireland


    Pretty impressive now, stretching all the way from Derry almost to Waterford.

    Atrocious conditions here in Waterford City. Heavy rain at my station with 37.8mm recorded so far. Flooding the worst ive ever seen at the entrance to my estate. Temp also dropped from 9.7c to 1.9c in half an hour.





  • Registered Users Posts: 8,913 ✭✭✭Danno


    Moderate sleet since around 10.30am in south Laois. A few flakes mixing in now during the heavier bursts. 2.6c / 1.6c DP and falling in a NE breeze.

    Snow covered fields over on the Comer Plateau. Probably 180m upwards.



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 16,874 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gonzo


    absolute write off of a day in Meath, cool and very heavy rain all morning. Winds last night were very strong, loudest I've heard it in several months.
