After one of our wettest Marches on record in Sligo with 190mm earlier this year August could also be near record breaking. Rain gauge at 160mm now for the month. Could be near 200mm by month end if Fridays wave depression transpires.

More fully wet days in August than all of 2019 before it.
What is the wettest August on record in the Northwest?

1985? 1986? 1998? 2007? 2012?....none of these?

Ok it looks like 1985 was the year

I was 11 and spent most of that August staring out the window. Low after low.

The other years might be caught.

200mm is attainable . Well see.

It’s been raining since 3am here in NE Galway and still at it. 25mm in the rain gauge over 200mm this month already. Desperate altogether, I’ve lost count of the number of full wet days this month.

today was mostly cloudy but a few nice breaks in sunshine earlier and temperature reached 21C in the early afternoon. Still dry here, the rain from the west looks like its decaying as it pushes into Leinster.

It’s been dull and dismal here all day. Thankfully no rain of note. Feel sorry for the people further west sounds horrendous. August has been predictably disappointing.

There was no rain today here in Glasnevin apart from about a minute of a few drops this evening. It got fairly cloudy this evening but earlier in the day there was a fair bit of sunshine. The high today was 22.9C.

You'd think August would have the best warmest weather with the heat building up all summer...no this is ireland sure...no wonder they used to call this island "Hibernia" (the land of winter)

Forecast looks pretty bleak upto Friday for the north west. The south east could escape it all going by the forecast after the news.
Dark tonight at 8.30, sky down on top of you.

There was a slot on the news. It looked like Bray or somewhere, glorious weather there.

Hopefully we will get a couple of decent weeks before the end of September. It tends to be one of our better months.

Average day in Cork City. Was raining this morning, stopped around 3pm and restarted around 6pm with heavy drizzle. Dark around half 8 here too depressing.
