Very calm and bright here this morning, then without warning the heavens opened and it poured down! it got quite windy, did this for about 4-5 mins, it was over so fast and now there is only a slight breeze but the sky has gone a bit grey!

Was woken up twice during the night with two very heavy downpours here in Waterford.

Extreme thunderstorm activity here in South East Kerry this morning, at least 10+ lightning strikes so far, some of the best lightning here in three or four years.

The latest strikes are still in Kerry and now in Waterford too.

Kerry Airport METAR
021020Z 18007KT 9999 VCSHRA SCT018 SCT025CB BKN038 12/11 Q0995

Waterford
021100Z 22021KT 9999 FEW028 SCT035 15/12 Q0998

Looks like a larger area of precip is now in radar range off the southeast coast, so there could be further interesting developments in southeastern and eastern parts later, aswell as through the west midlands as that area moves northeastwards from Kerry.

18Z GFS at 120 hours :



Don't worry, Ireland's storm shield keeps it stalled in the Atlantic until it weakens.

Just to update this thread, as MT mentioned in this forecast thread, it will be windy in the West tomorrow from afternoon onwards with gusts of around 70kmph along the coast.
