Not a drop her in my part of east Wicklow yet. Love living in the shadows of the Wicklow mountains. Decent summer here 7 out of 10 for me. Don’t think I could ever live out west going by the reports I’ve read here over the summer.

still dry here at Dunshaughlin, but the rain is starting to move ever closer. Looks to be a very heavy pulse of rain heading for Galway, Mayo and Clare.

I got a chance to go to the beach today, i made a video. Yeah that's not me.
Anyhow our weather this summer hasn't been to bad in Dublin. Rain, sunshine and warm.
Dry and warm now in swords. Expecting the rain at some stage.

I’d seriously consider moving West except for the weather. I love it and visit it regularly. Especially up around Mayo & Sligo . I also love Donegal and have been going there for years to visit my sister. It’s the most beautiful unspoiled county.
BUT the weather is a huge deterrent. They get so much more rain and cloud and grey damp weather than the East coast I’m almost on the beach here in Mornington Co Meath and it’s just fabulous, we get more than our fair share of sun and blue skies.

When I’m older I’d still love to move away, to a slower pace of life and less traffic and busyness , but if I’m honest the weather is the biggest factor .

Maybe I’ll look at Wicklow !

I used to always give the west a lot of crap but going to Donegal for the first time in a long while, my opinion changed dramatically. The period I went was apparently one of the better ones up there this summer but even then, it was blustery with a good few rain showers. If that was one of the better periods this summer weather wise, sorry but I don’t think I could live in the west. Magnificent landscapes and eye candy for photographers or those who crave scenery but weather... really is a no-no. I hope to be going every once in a while in future to see the rest of it though and the weather will not stop me because it was one of my best experiences I have had in my life.

I grew up on the west coast and it's really a beautiful and magnificent place especially when the sun comes out. You become immune to it when you live there hence people comment about what tourists must think of the weather, they're not there for the weather. Irish people go elsewhere for the weather.

People that spend a lot of time over on the East coast rarely experience the kind of drizzle that gets you damp which lasts all day every day for a week. It's not quite raining but it's not...not raining either.

Met and RTE used to have a tendency to ignore anything that was going on there too so storms would come and go without mention. That all seems to be better now.

Red Warnings Autumn/Winter

Hi All,
Bit of a crystal ball question but do you think we will experience any red alert warnings this autumn/winter?

Jaysus you're right there.

You'd be asking people to guess realistically. I'll guess yes, but that's based on nothing.
