high pressure is ridging up from the south-west for a few days, apart from the odd light shower it looks mostly dry between now and next Friday, then back to normal service with Autumn really setting in.

Feeling very autumnal these past couple of days, cool and windy in Letterkenny with a few heavy showers. Nice and bright in between at least

There's just one fecking ex American storm after another getting dragged across the upper latitudes on the jet stream, so while it'll not be the worst it's never quite going to settle down.

a bit more showery today than I was expecting. Managed to get the grass cut, however it looks more like I tried to cut the grass with a Formula One car than a ride on mower as the tyres sank into the saturated soil.

Got a fairly heavy shower down near Limerick City at around midday. There seem to be a good bit of rain or showers forecast over the next few days in spite of rising pressure. I have a field of silage to cut.

You must have awful soil there as the soil both here and in at my folks' in Garristown seems to be much less saturated. The local green got cut today and there were no tyre marks when I walked the dog a while ago.

Soil moisture defecits for well and moderatly drained soils are both currently 2 mm while it's -8 mm (practically saturated) for poorly drained soils. You must be in the latter.

Same here! Whole parts of the lawn are now just mud. Well at least it'll stop growing soon enough.
Chilly wind and V autumnal in Dublin 5.

Found yesterday and today pleasant in Dublin to be honest. A few passing showers but good sunny spells.

Listening to the wind in the background is very atmospheric and rather soothing. A lullaby rather than a warning.

My gas bottle ran out yesterday, and changing to the spare in a wind-whipped deluge was very..... interesting.
