In Sligo we have had 132mm since March 1st

In Markree 141mm

Its heading for 200mm for the month by the end of this weekend which is 60mm off the record for March nationally

My phone shows less than 30mm for all the rest of the days in total so record wet March may not be achieved.

We have had 155mm in Castlebar so far this month, it probably will not break the our 1994 record of 271mm, but could easily get in the top 5 wettest Marches.

Snow still confined to Northern Ireland and parts of Donegal, I think very few of us will see snow tomorrow.

Looks like the Mayo/Donegal mountains could get a fair dump.

Anyone got eyes on Croagh Patrick or Mweelrea?

Nationally speaking, the average rainfall total is standing at 109 mm for the first 2 weeks of March. This makes it the wettest March 1st to 14th period in at least 45 years, and well ahead of the next highest (85 mm) that fell in opening 2 weeks of March back in 1982.

I think we are paying for what my Grandmother used to call 'pet days' at the end of Feb. She always considered them to be a bad omen, and on this occasion at least, she has been proved more than right.

Light to moderate rain in kildare. It’s the kinda rain with big drops that usually precedes it changing over to Snow.
