Risk of hail and thunder tomorrow more so in the SW I think but most of the lightning if it occurs could happen over water or near the coasts. Some convection might get a lift off the mountains in Kerry giving some lightning. Will see.

Cold mid level and upper level air temperatures should provide half decent lapse rates, perhaps a very mixed profile but should encourage good convection and produce hail and wintry precipitation. Mountain tops should see a bit of a whitening.

If this is correct it was some serious strike.

Sneem is without power at the moment. There were 3 or 4 strikes, very intense and very powerful, power went within a second of the first strike.

Must have been some strike, 2 more faults on the map now.

Edit : 8 ESB faults now from the strike, over 15 km apart.
