After getting wet and windy here near Tralee this evening. Wonder if the trough moving in over Kerry could get a lift over the land and become unstable enough to produce some sparks.

EDIT: looking through the charts probably no more lightning here in Kerry today.

Violent, but much needed downpour in Tuam. Totals really toting up.

Edit: Rain rate now passed 200mm/ph. Lighting getting more frequent. Some big forks. Insane rain!

You could feel the boiling in the air earlier in Tuam. It is absolutely belting it down now.

Back at my house now and we're getting a repeat of what was up in the homeplace apart from the rain is alot heavier.

Sky seems to be brightening from the south, could be near over in the next 30mins

Rain easing up now but some real 'strobe' effect lightning. Thunder sounds very boomy and high based.

Very little rain here all day since 9am in West Limerick. Rained very heavily last night . Actually got a little sunburned working on a roof in the afternoon.

Sitting in my room here watching some nice, if increasingly infrequent crawlers to my north. Resulting thunder getting more distant sounding.

I think it was on this day 2 or 3 years ago we had a similar storm on this very day (July 19th) but it occurred during the nightime hours instead.

Yep round 2 here near Trim! It’s mad, I’m standing outside (in shelter!) and although the whole sky looks exactly the same, dark clouds all around, the rain just goes into mad crazy bursts of lashing, then easing, then absolutely lashing again, but I can’t see how as cloud doesn’t look different! If that makes sense!
