Flood warnings issued by and uk met office for n and nw. Many roads already flooded round Donegal town. My garden is a lake and I have a new waterfall out the back. Monitoring levels closely. No end in site according to radar.

Hourly fall of 7.3mm at Finner Camp on the 9pm reports:

Edit: Wednesday evening's front may need watching as well.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

The ground is damp(ish) !

It's gonna bit a Big One - I can tell

There is nothing I like more than spits and spots of rain and 14c and a bit of a breeze on a night at the very end of November.

You can keep your snow, this utter nothingness is what I live for!

We had close to torrential rain here for about 20 minutes around 8pm, back to a more moderate rate again now but it doesn't look like there's any and in sight yet on the radar so there'll definitely be spot flooding about

Latest NAE (18z) has the frontal zone wavering over the west & northwest until early morning:

Progression eastwards seems to be somewhat slower than on earlier runs, most likely due to small waves that are pulsing up along the front itself.

Hardly a puff of wind here in Galway so trough must be closing in.

10pm Reports:
Valentia: 5.6mm
Mace Head: 3.9mm
Finner Camp: 3.8mm (bringing 2hr total to 11.1mm)

I wondered when a thread might appear..looks like heavy rain in Mayo and Galway ..These fronts will no doubt fizzle before they get to the East?
