No - It's just raining all the time

It's interesting that with all the modern technology currently available from radar to satellites that balloons are still useful!

I enquired from ME about the tender for the new Shannon radar and was informed

"We’re at the end stage of the procurement process now. The request for tenders closed mid-November."

No time scale given but at least it appears to be progressing. Looking forward to having a better and more reliable service from Shannon.

Shannon Airport Weather Radar

I see Shannon radar is on the blink again this morning. Does anybody know what the problem is here? Every other weather radar installation seems to sing along 24/7 without interruption.

It's in the process of being upgraded, but it's not the only one that goes on the blink. Castor Bay has its issues as well, as do radars in most other countries, even Germany. Still, Shannon really does need replacing.

Gone in the last 20 minutes, annoying on a day like today.

Ah f*ck sake the one time I go for a long cycle intending to avoid the showers. Now I've no idea where they are!

Typical. If I was sitting at home or in work it would be working!
