I know of two people today who got soaked as they didn't know the radar was down. It is a great service.

Location defaults to Dublin on the android app.
I keep on having to manually select my location when I open the app.

Very annoying.

Does anyone know of a feedback address that we could send our comments to?


Or would ME know if users are always reverting to the old site and put 2+2 together? (I gave up using the new site a long time ago)


It's such a shambles, I'd love to make my opinion heard, for all the good it might do.

The sooner they realise that weather for dummies does not add up the better. It's no accident that mother nature is female and thus can not be pigeon holed.

So it's going to rain all day Saturday in New Ross except for one dry hour from 0400 to 0500 hrs?

Is this website still beta?

The image above reminded me to highlight this nonsense - hourly through the night then massive spacing during waking hours! Why is the illustration of weather prediction proving so hard for met.ie?

Isn't it just that so many hours into the future it only has a few slots a day, every 6 hours but up to that point hourly.

I'll I know is that if the rainfall predictor said a narrow front would cross between breakfast and lunch or mid afternoon and dinner you'd never know it on that graphic

Personally I think it’s pretty well laid out. Lots of the complaints here are pretty spurious.

Is anyone else having issues with www.met.ie on Chrome on Android? I have tried two different devices and the page takes forever to load. It seems to be related to the rainfall radar map and the various snapshot images it tries to render.

Still think the pressure charts look awful. Why map the isobar lines on to a map with a network of roads shown? Hard to make out the lines. A blank landmass would be ok.

Thanks. It's working fine now for me also. Nothing changed on my end.
