Rain, and from the SW! Maybe it's a slow moving feature by the time it hits Britain

****in joke.

Why the hell don't they update these predictions when they are clearly so badly wrong.

In this case, all Met Eireann had to do is look out the frigging window!!

This incompetence makes the whole predication model completely useless.

Probably because they’re completely computer automated with no human interpretation. Amazes me how many times these ****ty weather apps are posted on here and have to tell the same thing every time, stay away from them!

Breath taking incompetence.

Why are they even front and centre of their Homepage without any human intervention.

You have to wonder about a weather website that has a link to yesterday's weather. Who could possibly need it?

Just the same way that every single app, smartwatch, phone, etc. gives 100% automated output from a computer model (normally the GFS). The Met Éireann website is no different, except that they're using the Harmonie model. The BBC and UKMO websites are the same but use their own model.

I assume that was sarcasm. All national met services have this feature.
