seems ok on the main website

National Outlook

Headline: Relatively cool and unsettled weather will continue for the rest of the week.

Monday night: Any scattered showers will die out and the night will be dry, with clear intervals. Minimum temperatures 6 to 8 Celsius, in light to moderate northerly breezes.

Tuesday: Mainly dry and bright, with a mix of cloud and sunny spells, but a few well scattered showers will develop during the day. Temperatuers will be close to normal, or a little below, with maximum values of 14 to 18 Celsius. It will be coolest on north and east facing coasts, in mostly moderate north to northeast winds, winds fresh in some coastal areas. Tuesday night will be mainly dry, but rain may develop on the southeast coast towards morning. Min. 7 to 9 C.

Wednesday: Still some uncertainty in the forecast, but early indications are for a spell of persistent and locally heavy rain to move gradually in from the east, becoming widespread across Leinster and much of Munster by the end of the day, but Atlantic coastal counties will remain mostly dry until Wednesday night. Quite windy, with fresh north to northeast winds, strong on some coasts. Cool in the east and south, with max. temperatures of 12 to 14 Celsius, but milder elsewhere, with values of 13 to 16 Celsius.

Thursday to Sunday, inclusive: Current indications suggest that the weather will remain relatively cool and unsettled with scattered showers and possibly longer spells of rain at times, but good sunny spells also. Winds mostly moderate, northerly at first, becoming mainly west or southwest.

Must just be the app page, however it's strange that it's not always like that.

You can imagine how it's hard to read that big body of text not paragraphed though.

The national outlook this evening is brutal. Poor grammar, typos, missing words etc.

Room for improvement alright.

Quote:
A low pressure system continues to be close by off the northwest coast with overnight showery rain in the east and north clearing northwards and scattered showers elsewhere and some showers could be heavy, especially in the west and northwest. Top tempertures will still be below average and around 13 to 16 degrees in light to moderate west to southwesterly breezes.

Sunday will see the low pressure system tracking towards Ireland brining scattered showers with it. Over the west and north showers are likely to be more frequent and heavy with the risk of thundery downpours. Top tempertures will edge a degree higher and reach 14 to 17 degrees in light to moderate southerly winds, but fresh near coasts and in and around showers.

Yet another total contradiction between words and pictures tonight (probably to see repeated at 9.25)
Friday to be a washout - but 5 day graphic shows sun! Does anyone pay a blind bit of attention to their own work in that place?

i wonder how many times will they shift about the warning areas,surprised they didnt start their thundery mantra.
which goes as follows

thunderstorms with hail and lightning
difficult driving conditions,reduced visibility
heavy thundery downpours
thundery showers
the odd thundery burst
the odd rumble of thunder
a slight risk of thunder
untill finally nothing.

What happened to the 07:55 Radio1 forecast today?
It never appeared, even after the 08.00 news. Presenter kept going to ad promos to cover up the difficulties

Yeah, I heard that. Awkward few moments. I'm guessing there was some sort of comms issue between Glasnevin (ME headquarters) and RTE. It's not the first time that link has failed.

Indeed Met and RTE are both cash strapped when it comes to reliable infrastructure.

Jean Byrne has just said on the radio that we'll get the remnants of TS Danielle tonight and tomorrow. Eh, it's Gabrielle!
