I've given up on it entirely. Can't find the rainfall radar screen anywhere on phone or laptop, only a rainfall forecast screen - and even when I could, the colours were so bland as to be borderline useless. I'm sick of trying to navigate my way around the site, it's not in the slightest intuitive. I default to the archive site for as long as it lasts.



I emailed Met Eireann with my comments, and have heard not a dickybird back from them (which is surprising and disappointing, as when I happened upon a glaring error in a sea area forecast a few years ago and emailed them about it, the forecaster on duty was straight back to me in jig time, I was most impressed).

Launch of Ireland's High Resolution Ensemble-based Forecasting System

The Met Éireann EPS, called IREPS – Irish Regional Ensemble Prediction System, came into operational use at midday on Monday October 15th 2018 and is the first EPS system run operationally by Met Éireann. The ensemble had been running pre-operationally for several months. The European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF) has been running coarser grid ensemble prediction systems for the past few decades. However, the advantage of IREPS is its very high resolution.

From the drop down menu select Forecast Maps & there you will find 6 icons including ones for Recent Rain & Forecast Rain. Presumably it is the recent rain view you are looking for.

Noticed some presenters use an outline on their maps while others don't. It is hard to read with the lack of borders and I also find there is a large inconsistency in the rainfall radar when comparing it to other radar sites. Another good idea would be mark on the marine forecast maps and warnings where Erris head, Malin point etc is.

Is it mist/drizzle, as the radar doesn't pick that up?

Net weather's radar is showing a little more detail, you can see the light rain/mist/drizzle to some degree on it

Where does Net weather get its radar images from?
