awful day here in Meath, looking at the radar rain is covering nearly the entire country. We could well be in for another very wet and highly unsettled March.

Latest ensemble runs looks like delivering plenty of rain over the next 2 weeks

another wet and quite chilly day tomorrow, could be some wintry precipitations on mountains as the rain clears.



This is why I scored February a 7/10, despite missing out on cold and snow, we got my second favourite solution, dry, settled, sunny and very mild. There is nothing I hate more than day after day of rain and cold rain, a typical raging Atlantic.

Awful awful day. The few days we got during the week are such rare moments. Really enjoyed them even if I was in work but today is a horrible day.

just had some biblical rain about 20 minutes ago, lost all tv channels and gutters overflowing. Rain starting to ease now, but an absolutely miserable afternoon, not a day to be outside at all.

Stopped here now too after some awful rain. Have a bad feeling about March actually but thankfully heading away for 10 days.

I don't mind a poor March and April, best to get a raging Atlantic out of the way during Spring to something much calmer and settled by May/June.

I think in this country we have to take the good weather whenever it comes.

It's a big difference, nearly 15mm of rain this morning, still blustery though.

Very blustery in Dublin 13 with some heavy outbursts of rain, fairly strong gusts every now and then and some sunny spells. Not the nicest of days.

Awful start to spring here in Letterkenny, pouring rain all yesterday afternoon and again up until 2pm today. Heavy showers and strong winds now, more wintry than most of the actual winter was

could be some surprise sleet or very wet snow in places tomorrow, particularly midlands and high ground. I doubt anything will stick at lower levels. Could be the first flakes since last March in some areas.

I'll jump up and down with excitement if I see a flake of snow after the worst winter that I can remember. I would say 2016-17 was worse because of how dull it was but that had snow at least. I hope we get a Spring 2016 (or 2018 but we aren't going to get the same amount of snow as then) repeat.
