2 big cells broken out, one near labasheeda in Clare and one south of foynes. Loud long rumbling bursts of thunder audible here in West Clare.

Have since merged to form one fairly large thunderstorm moving towards Ennis, radar returns look insane.

Went more or less directly overhead here. Wasn't as intense as I thought it would be given the radar returns.
Watched a lovely C-G bolt strike around 2km west of me, and heard plently of other close and deep rumbles.
But just 'heavy' rain, nothing startling, and zero hail.

Still, I'll take that any day.
Great to get a good cell passing close!

Thunder currently in Castlebar and some hail added in for good measure.

There was a very brief splatter of hail here in Castlebar followed by some raps of thunder.

That beats my previous record for wintry weather in this area which was 3rd May, a long time ago. I take mental notes of these things. Not sure it counts though as it was very short lived. Certainly a first for me to see hail in JUNE!!!

Hail is not a winter phenomenon.

Theres normally a lot more convection in June than winter, so hail would prob be more common in the summer months.

Not many sferics overnight and what there was stayed well off the coast, none in the NW as far as I know , fair amount of activity up along the W today.

Missed all the rain here near Tralee today apart from 0.2mm, some sunny breaks but quite cloudy, could see some nice towers in the distance.








ECM captured it fairly well today, had the parameters well aligned that matched the track of the storms. Colder uppers over the Western half of the country, LLS and very decent DLS especially along the W coast , converging winds, decent lapse rates and reached decent 2m temps as the weather moved up the W.

It looks like we will see some heavy showers across Ulster on Saturday afternoon some possibly forming into isolated thunderstorms. Derry & Antrim look most at risk and possibly Tyrone and Down also. Will see what this mornings model runs show.

There seem to be some heavy showers in Northern Ireland this afternoon according to radar charts but no sparks.
