A poor day in Castlebar wet and windy with a few short lived bright spells, a max gust of 72 km/hr so far.

Not too bad a day here. It's mostly sunny and a bit breezy. There was a shower a couple of hours ago depositing 0.2mm. It's currently 19.6C, which is the day's high so far.

Ah personally, i think its only as bad or as good as we make it out to be, its been dry and sunny here apart from the 3 showers, they're fairly fast moving in the strong breeze, which is actually quite mild to, its been a good day overall here, but elsewhere probably not so much

A very pleasant surprise today, I was expecting a lot worse but it turned out to be probably the best day of the month so far even if the max temp was a modest 19.5c. - a good drying wind too that is helping the mouldy flowers in the garden to make a recovery.
Tomorrow will be different and is not looking good for Croke Park.

Dodged most of the showers around mid Laois today, my location at least.

I love mid to late August, as the change in season approaches and the evenings gradually draw in from 9pm to 8.20pm or so by 31st. Yet we often get a nice week of temperatures in the mid 20s late August/early September.

We do indeed as an arm of the great Azores high breaks off, moves over us en route to set up the great Siberian high of Winter. I often remember marking September 1st in the diary as when the first morning fog of the season is observed owing to the later sunrise.

Yerra bollox!! It's shyte. Irish weather is pretty much shyte all the time,especially in the west. It's amusing to read the denial by some posters. Am in Spain at mo in very high temperatures and loving every minute, but back next week to reality.

And by all accounts, reality is pretty grim. My beautiful flowers have badly fallen foul of the August wind and rain I'm told. But dare anyone complain!

nothing to complain about. grim? Only if you have unrealistic expectations! Nothing grim; just normal for Ireland. nesh you are! Now if you were in India, flooded out etc, complain away.. or snow in parts of Canada.. But this is fine; and out here wild and wet again all night. West Mayo offshore..

Not shyte here in East Wicklow
Its been 7 years since its been shyte here
This summer has been mostly pleasant and often warm here
But then my late mother who moved here from the Whesth 60 years ago always said she couldnt get over how dry it was here compared to Home
She also said she also saw a lot more snow up here when it snowed and that it lasted longer and more thunder over her lifetime here
