A cloudy day in wexford but the sun is trying to come out. I don't actually mind the cold, I'd take it any day over the cloudy, humid, muggy warm spell we got back in august.

Well that spun me right off my chair. Most people actually like cold weather?

To me this is the same as asking whether you like cancer, war, and child hunger. What kind of human being exactly votes yes? Cold weather brings death, sickness, economic ruin and decline, and depression and misery.
Hot weather also brings death though, and is probably more lethal than cold weather. The European heatwave of 2003 killed between 50,000 and 70,000 people! For comparison, the European cold wave of 2012 killed just under 1,000, which is also terrible of course. For an average person in Ireland, it is easier to escape from the cold than the heat. All types of weather have some sort of a downside.

It surely also d epends what you mean by "cold" . It is cold today . but in no way life threatening. And folk here on boards tend to love extremes anyways? It is extremes that threaten

a cool but pleasant day here in Meath. Warm weather is now confined to the very south of Spain and the far east of Europe.

The Spanish must be really feeling the chill, particularly over northern Spain with temperatures no better than Ireland.

Sudden hail squall in Letterkenny out of nowhere again!

It's been cooler these past few days but at least the weathers been interesting with plenty of sunshine and nice cloudscapes, I've much preferred September to any month since probably April

Another hail shower. Not that the hailstones are particularly big but this is the biggest I've ever seen them, which doesn't really say much.

Around 3am yesterday morning there was a really heavy hail shower in D5. Unusual for Sept.

In fact sometimes we get very cold Novembers with cold cold cold where in other countries there would be snowfall but here in Ireland just cold puddles of rain and sometimes hail and if youre lucky you might see a dusting on the mountain top out of sympathy.

Ive a feeling about this Winter though...(I hope I dont say this every year)
Ah, I asked my neighbour about the coming winter! he is nearly 70, born here and lived here all his life and he opines it will not be bad but blowy!

Now we DO get snow! In my first winter here we did; I even had a photo of it somewhere. Not a huge amount but my neighbours made a snowman

Glorious now; a dry wind and bright sun. Washing all dry. Grand!

Tomorrow will be a dry day overall, bar a few light scattered showers in Ulster in the morning. It'll be a bright, crisp day with sunshine and a moderate northerly breeze. Maximum temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees, mildest in the southwest.

Subtle changes for Sligo. Now it will be breezy and showery too

Sorry this is forecast from earlier in the week vs today

Max never exceeded 10.2c yesterday. New September cold maximum record set.

bitterly cold here in Meath, had a brief and light hail shower earlier but the size of the hail was fairly large.
