I’m well aware of the geography and the very short sea track between France and southern UK. I also well aware that once the air is into southern England during a SE’rly it results in a long land track with no water to modify (cool) or down.

Also understand that the Irish Sea is cold, so any heat on the mainland UK does not make it here without significant modification.

Doesn’t change the annoyance of it all.

It’s annoying that LP systems that deliver the heat to England (when combined with HP to the east) encroach on Ireland so much all too often rather than staying a little further west so we can at least join in the fun a little more often...

Saw a picture of the lightning on a Portsmouth Newspaper and some were taken from a hill overlooking the City, in the flash you can see the car park is full of cars and people outside them taking pictures of the lightning, clearly storm chasers the lucky people.

Keep scrolling through the ten pages

Lucky people for sure but I refuse to click through the pages, I hate those click heavy websites that withhold the information to gain click traffic

Ominous looking clouds all evening in West Clare. Very interesting shapes.

Don't hype, convective weather don't do colour based alerts, that's simply colours on a map.

It's high risk.


Anyway, on the high risk, this is mentioned:

"Strong deep layer shear, with some backing at the low-levels, suggests a couple of supercells will be possible, capable of producing very frequent lightning, large hail 3-4cm in diameter and, if storms can remain surface-based, the risk of a tornado or two."

Beautiful.

Very jealous of the UK. A record breaking 39° predicted tomorrow and more heavy thunderstorms tomorrow night. We just get the boring weather.

The Atlantic ruins everything for us.

I just ignore what’s happening over there. The difference in the weather to here would make you sick.
It’s beyond a joke.

It rained in this part of Galway yesterday and today but Galway is a big place so maybe you missed it. Other websites displaying radars are saying the same thing but you seem insistent on having a go at Met Eireann, each to their own.

Yes, however post that opinion, and if someone has a different experience they can also post their opinion.

Nothing in that post was aggravating!

Some fairly intense echoes showing up on the Kerry coast at present. Looking at them I wouldn't be surprised to hear a few rumbles in the SW tonight.

Would you prefer normal or life threatening weather?

Seriously guys, the UKs weather this evening is dangerous. You really don't want that weather here.
