    There's more to life than weather though. As much as people complain, our weather is generally alright. I'd love to live somewhere sunnier tho, the regular grey skies we get here can be pretty depressing at times.

    And there are regions and communities who dream of the amount of rain we get and how it could improve their lives




  • I find Mediterranean weather very bland after a while.

    Relentless heat and blue sky. I do love the balmy evenings and low humidity, but it's ultimately boring IMHO.




  • A more sub-tropical climate would be perfect for me, warmth and sunshine year round but with some nice big thunderstorms to keep things interesting. Maybe somewhere like Madeira though I've never been




  • The shortness of the season is what I hate most about Irish summers. We're 5 weeks off the longest day of the year and it still doesn't feel much better than winter. August is seemingly always a write off so we've maybe got a few weeks in June/July then back to another 10 months of miserable crap. Roll on international travel

    I think there's nothing like a nice summer evening in Ireland, but saying that there is something medicinal about a nice sun holiday abroad.




  • I have lost all hope with the recent weather, storms and cold temps is not what I think k of for late may..

    We had similar weather to this from mid June to end of August last summer, plenty of rain and cool temperatures and barely any sunshine. Still 10 days to go to summer. Let's hope this summer is better than last years horror show of a summer.




  • It better improve or it wont be only Africans arriving in the Canaries in overcrowded illegal boats

    Go back through the summer 2020 forum and you’ll find plenty of comical Ali types telling us the weather was glorious!

    I lived in Brisbane for a while, that's a good description of the weather there. Warm with occasional epic thunderstorms.

    Old threads a bit of bed time reading is it? :pac:




  • FWIW, the CFS shows this horrible spell breaking in the last week of May, for a generally HP dominated and below average rainfall June.

    Note the blue and green frames respectively at the beginning of each GIF, the current situation is well out of whack in terms of the average:

  • Tentative signs of a settled warmer spell from midweek on.




  • Rte only have highs of 13c till next Friday and no sign of sun in Dublin




  • Rte only have highs of 13c till next Friday and no sign of sun in Dublin

    I can see bits of blue when I look up. Rumour has it that it's not the source of the wet stuff that falls.

    Probably only a rumour though.




  • This high pressure next week won’t be anything to write home about. We will get a few drier days but sunshine won’t be guaranteed. Not complaining though, we need it. Some newspaper reports claiming that the first week of June will be warm and sunny... anyone who takes that as gospel will be very disappointed.
