Now here's Cork Airport's version to the above on monthly sunshine totals ranked. Records go from April 1962 to August 2018. Like Dublin Airport, will include seasons and annual in future. Attached excel file containing the data.

Hopefully lots more stats this weekend and other posts as I'm largely free.

Like I said, there will be a lot of stats!

To start off.....

The number of days with 25c or more at Carlow (Oak Park) since its records began, in 2018 was the third highest on record behind only 1995 and 1976 with 22 such days compared to 33 and 23 in 1995 and 1976 respectively.



Data comes from Met Éireann.

Meanwhile, in terms of days with 20c or more (up to September 15th) at Carlow (Oak Park), 2018 was also the third highest amount on record at 74 such days behind only 1995 and 1975 at 85 and 77 days respectively.

False, there was a report of 106 mph in Ballykelly, Northern Ireland during ex-hurricane Debbie on 16 September 1961.

UK Met Office's summary for September 1961 states of gusts exceeding 90 knots on the 16th at the same station: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/binarie.../k/sep1961.pdf

If they were off by say 2mph I'd forgive them but 15mph, seriously?

Sunniest Junes per decade since the 1940s (since 1942, so not including the exceptionally sunny June of 1940) at Dublin Airport.



I gave overall records for Cork Airport and Dublin Airport but now here's some top 5 rainfall record illustrations.

Have attached a draft listing of days with gust speeds of 90 knots and above for the period 1940 to mid-2018. West coast dominates. When is better to use gust speed, 10 minute speed, or mean wind speed. Does the mean wind speed give the best overview of the strength and duration of a storm?

Cork Airport recording a maximum of 10.3c yesterday under Storm Bronagh would make it one of the coldest September days here on record (back to 1962). Top 5 coldest:

1. 26 Sep 1974 - 9.9
2. 24 Sep 1965 - 10.2
3. 28 Sep 1974 - 10.2
4. 20 Sep 2018 - 10.3
5. 30 Sep 1993 - 10.4

Amazing considering the Summer experienced just before it unlike the others here which were all cool and unsettled Summers in comparison to 2018.

2018 never fails to impress! Yet another impressive extreme.

The stats show for the southeast of Ireland that September 2018 hasn't been as sunny as some (including myself) might expect. In fact, it's been very average.

Dublin Airport - 111.2 hrs
Johnstown Castle - 111.0 hrs

I think it's because the sunny days came in blocks if that makes sense. The first week was very sunny but the second week was very dull. I think it is more memorable if we have say 10 days in a row with 10 hours of sunshine each rather than if we have 10 days scattered throughout the month with 10 hours of sunshine. This is also why August felt so dull for me, because we got so many dull days in a row.
