So with my leaving cert also starting on Wednesday, I'm not complaining about the crap weather incoming

Currently nice enough with sunny spells and high cloud in West cork, was wet during the night though. Warm in the sun aswell

Unexpectedly lovely day in the west
Only downside is I’m very hungover and now have no excuse not to cut the lawn

2013 and 2018 were front end summers like it was good early but disappointing later on in August. Are we in for a backend Summer this year. It was quite a while since we had a good August.

Not too bad of a day now with light enough winds.

The perfume from the cordyline flowers is intoxicating today.

Thankfully I escaped all the awful weather in June. I remember there was a brilliant spell of weather at the end of May 2016 lasting until the start of June with unbroken sunny skies apart from a cloudy start on the 1st of June. I went on holidays on the 4th and it was cloudy in Dublin (the end of the spell?). Then if I remember correctly, I think I read here about thunderstorms in Ireland around the 6th or 7th.

Yeah, had some lightning flashes on night of the 6th June 2016 - last I had spotted here until 27th May 2018. Was a disappointing spell for Dublin to be honest. 28th to 31st May were very good though.

Miserable first day of summer but take heart people! For personal reasons I vividly remember this day, June 1st in 1995 and it was absolute shyte. Grey and chilly and every bit as depressing as today and we all know what happened next

I'd also like to wish the very best of luck to both syranbruen and SleetAndSnow in their LC. A major event and hugely important exam but those two sound like they'll fly it.

Would be nice to get August. This bank holiday weekend last year was a cracker.

It’s the brightest few weeks of the year coming now love to see some good weather so we can get out and enjoy the long evenings. Nothing against August but from the 15th on I always think there’s a noticeable shortening of the days. Breezy often overcast here today was humid enough earlier but definitely not warm/hot/roasting etc. looking with envy at the scenes from Madrid beautiful blue skies and sun.

Thanks Acequin! Here's to hoping!

Currently heavy rain in West cork about about 2 hours of drizzle and fog, chilly enough too. Not the best
