Including all the models rainfall predictions for comparison later.















EURO 4 Way out on it's own and would have to think that it is way over doing it but will include for verification purposes later.

Models differing somewhat with wind predictions for tomorrow I think. ICON would come closest to Met Eireann forecast but ECM and EURO 4 atm showing a bit less strength. French models showing less again . Would side with the ECM / EURO 4.

I note Clare and Connacht are no longer covered by a rainfall warning.

Without being sensationalist I am wondering could we see a red rainfall warning for parts of the S tomorrow. Certainly looks close to it at this stage.

What do ye think.

From Met Eireann


Criteria for Red – Severe Weather Warnings

70mm or greater in 24 hrs
50mm or greater in 12 hrs
40mm or greater in 6 hrs

I'm near Conna, Cork right in the zone for the possibility for highest rainfall, according to my Acu-Rite weather station over 40mm of rain has fallen since the 'rain event' started 18 hours ago, and almost 29 mm since midnight. I tried attaching a screenshot but has boards stopped people attaching pics nows?





Mod Note: No you can still attach pics.

Stopped raining for near 2 hours last night in cork city, the wind picked up in the meantime before the rain started again. The rain hasn’t been heavy though, it’s a light drizzle today with some gusts.

Absolutely disgusting today in Cork City. Went out for a walk and didn't last long. 6º with that wind and its like a winters day.

What's up with the radar today? Has been showing rain over Letterkenny for hours, and not just light stuff but 5mm/hr colours yet it's still bone dry

This was happening here earlier. Maybe the wind is evaporating the rain before it hits the ground. This can happen in warm weather.
