Ulster Ballyhaise 21.9°C Finner 21.2C

After a fight back from Ulster Markee comes up with the goods to keep Connaught running away just half way through the contest.

The battle of the provinces Day 16.

Connaught Athenry 21.0°C Markee 22.6°C
Ulster Ballyhaise 22.4°C Finner 20.7C

The battle takes on a new phase as more unsettled weather sets in for the next few days. It may throw up some interesting figures.

This is going to be a complicated post because we have a tie on the Max temperatures from 2 premium stations one from each province. Therefore I’ll be taking the next highest maximum temperature to judge which province will win a point.

The battle of the provinces Day 21.
Max temperature
Connaught Athenry 19.2°C Markee 18.4°C
Ulster Ballyhaise 19.2°C Finner 18.9C

Min Temperatures
Connaught Athenry 13.8°C Markee 13.6°C
Ulster Ballyhaise 14.0°C Finner 14.2C

As Finner has the next highest maximum temperature of the four stations a point is awarded to Ulster making it C. 12 U. 9.
This post was made under my intreptation of the rules set by M.T Cranium and stands for correction.

Thanks, you were right, in fact Ulster won both the tie-breakers in play but the first one is the comparison of the two cooler locations after the two warmer ones are tied.

Here's the rest of the update after three weeks ...

IMT stands at 15.8 C with the third week 16.5, 0.9 above normal. Will likely get pushed into mid 16s before slight downgrades later, might reach about 16.3 for end of month.

MAX will be revised after today as I noticed 27 on hourly report from Phoenix Park. (It was 24.2).

MIN stands at 3.6.

PRC got a big boost yesterday (and before that at Claremorris), the month now sits at 99% of normal with this past week 230% on average, although Cork came in below average. Looks like another upward jolt later this week, despite the dry first half the month could come in above normal now.

SUN has fallen off to 106% with this past week only 73% of normal (438/600).

As tracked above by Jpmarn, the bonus question stands at 12-9 for Connacht vs Ulster.

As our bonus question takes some twists and turns with dealing with a tie yesterday it much simpler. All the four stations had their max temperatures in the 20s with a new MAX for our overall contest.

The battle of the provinces Day 22.

Connaught Athenry 22.6°C Markee 23.0°C
Ulster Ballyhaise 24.1°C Finner 23.7C

As Ballyhaise has the highest temperature of the four stations a point is awarded to Ulster making it C. 12 U. 10.

Our New Max is 26.6°C recorded at Phoenix Park station in Dublin. It but out an hourly report of 27°C so it was rounded up figure.

With just 8 days left this heated battle is all to play for the provinces.

The battle of the provinces Day 23.

Connaught Athenry 22.9°C Markee 24.5°C
Ulster Ballyhaise 23.3°C Finner 23.6C

As Markee has the highest temperature of the four stations a point is awarded to Connaught making it C. 13 U. 10.

Ironically the hottest place in the Republic of Ireland is also in the province of Ulster, Malin Head at 25.8°C .

I cannot remember any other day that Malin was the warmest! Very unusual climatic conditions.

The battle of the provinces Day 24.

Connaught Athenry 21.3°C Markee 21.0°C
Ulster Ballyhaise 22.7°C Finner 20.6C

As Ballyhaise has the highest temperature of the four stations a point is awarded to Ulster making it
C. 13 U. 11.

It looks like there will be no heat records broken in Ireland today but our capital seems to be the warmest part of Republic of Ireland in the last few days. The hottest place to be in on this Island is Belfast. But it will probably be about 14 degrees cooler than London today
