Like really heavy.

The toilets are not draining heavy (our septic tank/drainage area gets overloaded in this situation).

I was here for a glimpse of hope, but I think from what I gather the only bit of relief will be around 2 am.

I wouldn't mind if we didn't have that bloody issue with the toilets.

This is relentless. We have been under a orange or red blob in Cork City since about 4/5pm! Still coming too!, although looks like not for much longer.

March is already starting to look like a brighter version of what November usually is.

Brace yourselves
Some anomalous cold in the middle of the Atlantic as the Cold in the states clashes much further south than often seen with warm air there amplifying our jet arcing it south below us next week
510 dam is pretty darn cold,it would mean frozen precip from cloud to ground even out there and I'd imagine some hefty showers
Might have Eastern snowbies looking on in envy west and north again

Showery and cold in Tralee. This would have been so much better in winter and to have last week's weather now. It's around now or a little later that I start thinking of my garden, but here in Ireland you get that chance in February and maybe not again for months.

On a different note. Hope Graces7 is ok. We haven't heard from her for a while and I miss the offshore island weather updates.

What does he mean by 'the NAO remains weakly positive'? It looks VERY positive to me on the chart he posted with LP from the west Atlantic to eastern Europe and of course our old friend the Azores!

Miserable day in Letterkenny once again, raining non stop from sunrise to sunset, feels like its barely stopped all month so far

Showery in cork city. Driving down to west cork now. Loss of fields heavily flooded, haven’t seen that in years. Lovely blue sky and orange sunset next to the dark clouds though.

Bandon river very high, all the fields are flooded and half way up some trees next to it. If they didn’t have the new wall in Hanson the town would be flooded I’d say

NAO is only a measure of the difference in pressure between two points in the Atlantic,it’s not the only driver
He’s mentioning it in passing because last time the jet was to be amplified like this,we had a west based neg NAO with its associated high pressure preventing the jet diving south of us
The cold weather he’s talking about is due to a probable kink in the jet stream which will mean we are to the north of said kink leaving the door open to cold north or northwesterlys but this time the door opens enough for really really cold pockets to enter near enough to potentially make it to our shores
That 510 dam air for instance is enough or should be for snow to the surface even in the Atlantic and ergo on the west coast at sea level should it head fully here
The kink favoring our area (if you like cold) is caused to happen where it is by an unusual surge of very cold air all the way into the Deep South US
Where it’s clashing with warmth is so far south this time that the jet bounces like a basket ball way north to the east of the Us and drops south then in a U shape south of us
