It's been raining down here in north tipp since 12.30pm. The rain is not that heavy at the moment but it is very humid and starting to get dark. Hopefully we will get a thunderstorm before the day is out.

TODAY will feature some heavy showers across much of Ireland although it should start out dry in the east and north and stay partly cloudy to about mid-day, then overcast but dry before the rain finally arrives perhaps as thundery showers at first. In areas that start the day wet, there is some hope of a gradual drying trend after mid-day but the wettest areas may be from about Waterford northwest to Galway as the showers will move through there at their peak around 2-3 pm. Highs will range from 24 C in some areas inland northwest of Dublin and into parts of Ulster, to about 19 C in the south coast and some west coast districts. Winds will be moderate from the southeast in the coastal areas and possibly around any heavy thunderstorms inland later on. It will be very humid everywhere and this will make it feel even warmer. Watch for updates on any storm developments.
Hmmm - just to tell you how it's been panning out here on this part of the east coast so far today.
It was cloudy with the odd peak of sun to about 11am.
The sun has been out since and here in the countryside it's about 20c and beautifull in a light southerly.

The sun is starting to come out here. The rain didn't last long. Looks like it's going to be a nice sunny evening. Still very humid despite the stiff breeze. Very disappointed no thunderstorm activity despite the high levels of humidity.

UPDATE _ Tuesday, 30 June_ 6 pm
_______________________

I think the chances for a good thunderstorm rise gradually to reach a peak on Friday when the air mass finally changes -- so far these disturbances are rather weak in dynamic terms, just ripples on a front with long trajectory over the ocean, so they haven't produced much if any thunder yet. Thursday looks fairly good for thunderstorms and Friday looks even better (to me, which is a big caveat emptor right there).

In the meantime, I will be approaching some of the other weather forum stalwarts to pool their ideas for these forecasts, TBH the whole intention of this thread a month ago was to get weather forum members talking about forecasts, not whatever has actually taken place here, but then this is typical of weather forecasting, not foreseeing what will actually happen.

I always seem to remember as a child when Wimbledon was on TV, whenever the sun was shining hot in London,it would be damp and drizzly here.This year is no exception. We really need the Azores High to influence things,but as it happens it was Scandinavian High pressure that gave us last weeks fine weather and now it is gradually fading away....still time for some nice summer weather though.I'd be more optimistic than the last couple of years...

___________________________

TODAY will start out rather wet in eastern counties and parts of the Midlands and this rain could turn very heavy at times with thundery downpours (to include Dublin). Districts further to the south, west and north will begin the day dry and may see some hazy sunshine through mostly cloudy skies. Later on, some of the heavy thundery showers could redevelop in similar areas but also there will be more breaking out mainly to the north, although some isolated heavier showers are possible in other districts. I don't think that it will rain all day and if the sun comes out between or after showers it will be very muggy and warm as highs could reach 25 or even 27 C in places (more likely 20-22 C near the south coast).

Watch for updates as we track some of this activity.

TONIGHT will be mostly cloudy with more showers likely, although some of the western counties may remain dry with some fog or mist developing. It will be unusually warm with lows 15-18 C.

THURSDAY is likely to produce some heavy thunderstorms after any morning sunshine, and it will be very warm or almost hot in some places, and very humid, with highs near 25 C but feeling closer to 30 C (before the rain). Some of the storms could become torrential and lead to flooding.

FRIDAY is also looking very unsettled with more heavy showers and thundershowers developing from west to east during the day. It will be a slightly cooler and less humid air mass but still rather warm at 21-23 C.

SATURDAY will be much cooler and fresher feeling with SW to W winds of 20-35 mph in many places, passing showers, some sunshine mixed in, and the risk of a brief hail or thunder shower. Highs will be about 19 C after morning lows near 12 C. (relief)

SUNDAY looks fairly similar although there may be somewhat less wind especially in the northwestern counties. Lows will be 8 to 11 C and highs near 17 C.

NEXT WEEK seems likely to remain much cooler and less humid than this week.

UPDATE _ Wed 1 July, 7:15 pm
________________________

Another batch of heavy and possibly thundery showers is brewing off the south coast, looks to be heading about due north to hit the coast between Cork and Waterford late this evening (about 11 pm) and then spread into much of central and possibly eastern Ireland overnight. I have the impression that this might die out slowly and be followed by another area of heavy showers leading to the predicted heavy thunderstorms and localized torrential rainfall and possible flooding in some areas tomorrow. In any case, the trend is towards widespread rainfall and whether this comes overnight or Thursday, be prepared for the risk of flooding. Would recommend that people have a look at the thread started by Darkman2 as yours truly may be out for several hours now (today is a holiday here).

Just back from Waterford city.

Witnessed 4 lightning strikes just on the outskirts of the city towards the west/north west direction. Some extremely heavy showers too.
