The last one fizzled to nothingness but I think the main event over here will be several hours from now.

And I'm not just sayin' that 'cos Easterly said it

Even heavier over Sligo & Donegal but unfortunately these counties are not well represented by the Shannon & Dublin radars.

Fronts should slowly move eastwards overnight and into tomorrow with always chance of some heavier bursts.

EDIT: Latest radar from the UK Met Office: (10.30pm)


Front now seems to be stalling over west Galway, up through Mayo and Sligo and into Donegal. Possible small wave developing west or SW of Clare.

I see there's a band of red extending up through Coleraine! That just has to be producing snow on the hills up behind the house!

Not much rain down here by comparison but the wind is certainly getting up and threatening to kick some doors in.

Where did you get that radar DE? Is it publicly available?

Nothing too dramatic here now, really heavy as that red band moved over but its been light to moderate ever since

Great stuff, never knew about that. Far better than the ME radar for Donegal and the colours are much easier to read than raintoday

A big difference between Knock and Claremorris even though there only a few miles apart.Should be some interesting totals by tomorrow morning.
