    You may start seeing some wintryness in the precipitation soon.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,887 ✭✭✭adocholiday

    Raining here since about 10am in South Wicklow but it's gone very heavy the last couple of hours, starting to flood in various places around Rathdrum and the river across the road from me is very high already. No let up in sight either, Met Eireann have heavy rain forecast until 8pm.

    Today is possibly the wettest and most miserable day since Christmas Day, still pouring here in Meath.

    Imagine if we had cold air from the east or north undercutting all this rain, the country would be buried in snow.

    Orange warning for Waterford after we get 50mm of rain!

    Obviously no one likes a dark, wet, cold miserable day. But another part of me is glad it's occurring in March. Dry January had me seriously worried about the summer.

    I know it's debatable whether prolonged spells of dry autumn and winter weather mean anything about what summer will be like. But I'd much rather today being as it is on 9 March that 9 June or 9 July.

    Cracker of an afternoon here in the West. Cargojet 767 just north of Castlebar heading for east midlands

    I was getting very worried too after the dry January and just before we entered February it looked like the high was going to last all the way into March but happy it didn't. Spring and Autumn are the two seasons I care least about so I don't mind if it rains alot during them if it means a decent summer.

    I've been looking at the long range CFS every day for the past few months and my attention has now turned to May, June and July and the charts seems to be indicating a fairly unsettled summer but one with numourous plume attacks from Spain and Northern Africa across parts of Ireland and UK with the Atlantic staying just out to our north west much of the time. Some of the runs are also rather worrying to show cold unsettled shots from the north-east during June and July.

    I know the CFS long range isn't worth a damn, but this year it seems warmer and more volatile looking for the summer. We have a long way to go to the summer but from what i've seen this summer could prove rather warm and humid and possibly thundery at times. August of course is not looking good with the long range models showing August to be a cool and unsettled Atlantic dominated month.

    Certainties in life: Death, taxes and sh**e August weather.

    Came home to the aftermath of a flooded garden. Paths and patio caked in mud. Bark mulch where streams of water carried it away.

    Had a look at the hourly recordings, guessing it was the downpour around 9am where Moore Park recorded nearly 2cm in an hour.

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

    There were other pictures circulating of people sitting on the roofs of their cars in Waterford. Alot of people caught out.

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,160 ✭✭✭✭Thelonious Monk

    Totally agree but we got some lovely weather last August for once

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,907 ✭✭✭appledrop

    We braved the school run this morning. It was very windy but thankfully only drizzly rain at that stage.

    It lashed rain then for pretty much the rest of the day.

    Tomorrow looks like a dry day, before the rain returns again on Friday so make the most of it!

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,907 ✭✭✭appledrop

    Stunningly beautiful spring day 🌷out there.

    Just back from lovely walk so treating myself to a nice slice of cake!

    The rain will be back with a bang tomorrow so get out + enjoy it if you can.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,365 ✭✭✭esposito

    Already went for two walks today to make up for yesterday.

    It's actually been fairly gusty in cork city all evening, some strong gusts hitting the house and coming down the chimney every so often, wasn't expecting them!

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,907 ✭✭✭appledrop

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,907 ✭✭✭appledrop

    A day for staying in and getting jobs done at home.

  • Registered Users Posts: 471 ✭✭KingdomRushed

    Is it just me or does it look like the Eastern coast counties are in for a very bad storm on Sunday?

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,401 ✭✭✭✭Supercell

    Fax charts are just showing a normal (for the time of year) windy day with some rain with the worst of the weather out west, dont really see anything special there right now. The low to the south tracks accross the west of the country
