Sunshine totals (hours) for Irish stations from the 21st-24th June 2018.

Shannon Airport still on top with Valentia Observatory and Cork Airport equaling for second sunniest stations during the period so far.

16.0 hours at Knock Airport makes it Ireland's sunniest June day since 2010.

Ive only cut my grass once this year and that was 19th May.

Usually by now Id have cut it about 6 times.

However due to severe cold restricting growth up to May and now just 2 wet days in 2 months there is absolutely no need to cut it as garden has stopped growing

National mean total over the last 30 days (since May 26th) is standing at just 31.4mm, which equates to just 45% of 1981-2010 average for the period. I will do a full individual Met station breakdown of the stats later on.


Info from Met Éireann.

Grass has gone very orange in Cork City, with some of the pathway grass totally barren looking. My own garden is pretty patchy.

Some water levels on the east coast, Liffey at Leixlip just dipping below the 50th percentile:



And the Dodder:



Nothing abnormal at either just yet, but you can see in both the almost complete lack of Dublin-area rainfall in the last few months. I think the catchment area is probably keeping these levels up, for now.

You can get country-wide levels of certain rivers via http://waterlevel.ie/


Then when you click on an individual station, pick "Water Level for past 5 weeks".



When you do that, some of the stations will have an external link to 'view historical data', where you'll be able to see much older values than 5 weeks (some of them don't have this).

yes waterlevel.ie is a great site.
I often swim in the corrib in Galway and I keep an eye on the temp here:
https://waterlevel.ie/0000030098/0002/week/

Its touching 22c now at the surface of the river.
Feels like its getting close to swimming pool temperature there now.

Percentiles are difficult things to figure out or explain - I believe the 50th percentile on that chart means that about 50% of the time, the water level is higher than it, and the other 50% of the time it is lower. 95th percentile I think means that 95% of the time the water level is higher than it, 5% of the time it is lower.

So being below 50 percentile is not necessarily out of the ordinary, I think it's somewhere around 80 percentile and below where things are substantially different from average.

Could be wrong about that though, as I say, my brain hurts when it comes to percentiles.

One thing to say is that percentiles do not equate to a percentage of the river level.

Does it have any trout in it?
If so they would be in trouble with that low level and Im sure high temperatures too.
I remember seeing trout die in some streams back in 1995.
