Wet + windy here now. Usually the start of September is dry and sunny . Like others have said, we will be in serious trouble if it doesn't dry up soon, flooding could be quite bad this winter as the ground hasn't been properly dry since early June, whenever the ground did dry up in the summer, it got wet again soon after.

As we know nothing is normal this year including the 'good' back to school weather.


Absolutely torrential rain all morning in Dublin. Surface flooding on all the roads. Its depressing after dullest summer on record in Dublin.

"The world" has vanished from sight out here. Just.... solid walls of water and a howling high wind. But so far it is all soaking in as we have had little rain of late.

There is a small area by the gate where rainwater tends to pool but all is fine there now and this place is raised on concrete blocks.

Looking at my old home area of Clifden and Recess.

Stay dry!

It's a soft day in Waterford, dull and damp in the air but not much.

Lashing rain all through the night here - awoke to sulking cat hysterically miaowing in the porch and demanding to be let in. (I do not own a cat). Cat & I now seated in/on furry bathrobes at opposite ends of the couch. My biggest problem with today is whether an expiry date of 10/08/2020 is October 8th or August 10th. If no further posts please ring coroner to come in his boat & do the necessary.

Huge tides and waves breaking the dunes apart last week and blistering sun yesterday - mother nature sure is having a schiczophrenic phase.

I wonder will we have a mostly dry autumn and a crisp winter, all that rain that fell and the river's and lakes at full capacity in North Clare, even the turloughs are appearing again.

The river Fergus in Corofin burst it's banks a few times, although the village is up higher but the lake on the way in had flooded all the fields.

The falls in Ennistymon were a sight to behold recently, there was a constant rainbow over the falls when the sun came out and all around there was a mist.

2020 is a strange year, all we need now is a big freeze at the end of the year to put the icing on the cake.

Strangest rainband I have seen in a good while. All morning the rain has been mostly light, but every now and again, and with a curious regularity, a heavier burst will come along and last for no more than 5 to 10 seconds at a time. This has been happening since about 7am this morning.

Dry when I woke up this morning in Cork City (but the ground etc was wet). Overcast and about 18 degrees. Feels humid enough too

It is the same out here; rhythmic rain singing its ancient song. Although the bursts here last longer.

like most of the country it rained alot last night and it was very loud rain indeed and it kept me awake for much of the night.

The good news is that once we get past today it should be much dryer over the next week with high pressure next week looking like a decent possibility, however there still may be some showery activity across western and northern areas close to the coast.
