    Areas of heavy rain are expected to pulse northwards across much of N Ireland and the southwest of Scotland through Saturday, potentially accompanied by thunderstorms. Rainfall totals of 30 to 40 mm could fall in 2-3 hours in some places with a low risk of 80 to 100 mm in 24 hours, bringing localised flooding and travel disruption.

    A delicious heavy shower of long absent RAIN in progress out here. Sweet unfamiliar sound.

    The drought is over.... Bliss

    The radar looks beefy in the northwest this morning but the leading edge of it is not reaching the ground. Both Donegal and Sligo airports are reporting CAVOK (no rain and no cloud below 5000 ft) at 07.30 despite appearing to be under rain. This is due to the distance from the Belfast radar, which at that range is detecting the leading edge rain at a much higher altitude, and it's then evaporating before reaching the ground.

    tomorrow is going to be a shock to the system. Met Eireann are predicting a temperature of no higher than 12C for tomorrow here in Meath. Last time we had temperatures like that was in early May.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,648 ✭✭✭pauldry

    Today strange. Lashing rain. Ground still dry??? Do we need a false rain thread too?

    Also 14c in Sligo n 20c in Newport but cloudy in both bar the false rain here.

    Very heavy rain from this evening though and that WILL wet the ground.

    Stormy tomorrow in a few places and Sunday too but low may lose its oomph then and quite with scattered showers and temperatures of 19 or 20c again.

    Heavy rain out here all day. It is starting to soak in at last ,The ground was bone dry. So in some places it has not even gathered, Just evaporated,

    The rain at the stations in the West starting to build. Very sore headache so I presume drops in pressure are fast and thundery too.

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,634 ✭✭✭✭Graces7

    It started out here around six am and then built up and up as the day wore on, A continual hard heavy deluge now - and yes headache . But so badly needed and the hay is in and a good crop.

    Going by weather forecast on RTE just there I'd say we could escape rain in Sligo tomorrow day if they are right and get a breezy sunny day. However due to Low pressure isolated thunderstorms are also possible here. Other parts of East and West will have a lot of rain.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,897 ✭✭✭Oscar Bravo

    A fairly active front over Mayo now. Heavy rain here in Castlebar . Was dark very early tonight.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,500 ✭✭✭appledrop

    Yet again we are escaping bad weather in Dublin. We had a shower or two in afternoon but that was it. I hope weather has held up aslo down in Strabally for Electric Picnic.

    I'm sure the place will be soaked by morning but dry for now.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,616 ✭✭✭SleetAndSnow

    Heavy rain just started now in Cork City. Big green across the way (usually boggy) is pure yellow, but wasn't wishing for rain because once it's here it stays! But alas, autumn is coming with a bang!

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,528 ✭✭✭Pangea

    Biblical rain here now in SW Donegal

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,634 ✭✭✭✭Graces7

    A clear- skied morning after yesterday's looong deluges. A perfect autimn morning with clear skies, and even a light hoar on wide- bladed grass in sheltered places.. and nippy. My feet are chilled.

    As lovely an autumn morning as there can ever be... a delight to wander the lanes picking blackberries and revelling in skies and ocean.

  • Registered Users Posts: 665 ✭✭✭cheezums

    Blessed rain and a welcome cooling to start the Autumn.

    Notably cool in parts of the west with 6s and 7s showing up on - a sharp contrast to the east under the cloud and rain with up to 17c currently in coastal Down county.

    a miserable wet morning here in Meath, haven't seen one of these in a long time and i'm sick of the rain already. Today will be the first day since July that I won't be having my lunch outside.

  • Registered Users Posts: 162 ✭✭Hairypoppins

    Cheer up ,you can have your lunch and maybe the dinner outside too tomorrow instead, 20 degrees and sunshine on the cards

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

    Yes, the rain has lost it's novelty already, it can march off with itself now!

    I suppose it's the knowing that days like this are going to get more and more common over the next six months or thereabouts kind of sinks the ol' morale a bit.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,771 ✭✭✭acequion

    I think I could accept it if a month on, let's say today was 3rd October. But jeez September has barely started and I dread to think of the months ahead if it's starting already. I will always trade a fine September with a summer month as it really shortens the winter.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,712 ✭✭✭adocholiday

    The wind situation for early tomorrow morning is changing every few hours on Met Eireann. Is there a consensus on this now?

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,969 ✭✭✭pad199207

    I don't mind the odd day like today. Today's weather I kind of welcome, cooler, fresher and welcome rain for the grass. Been spoilt with many dry days this year.

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,634 ✭✭✭✭Graces7

    The swiftness of change. A serene day now here, but chilly
