Rainfall % of average for the first two months of 2019 for all of the reporting Met Eireann stations:
Data: Met Eireann.
Very apparent east/west split, While most if not all stations are coming in with a rainfall deficit, some stations in the east have only received 50% or less of normal rainfall for the Jan-Feb period.
Fairly widespread, if modest falls across the country on the first day of Spring yesterday, with longer range forecasts suggesting anything between 20 & 50 mm falling over the country over the 7 days or so, so maybe some good news for those looking for some rain.
