Can definitely confirm we had at least one lightning strike here in Sligo, it lit up the entire room and a massive thunder clap was approximately 10 seconds behind it and rattled the roof! 😠(Given my geographical position it's a miracle I seen any lightning at all! But it was spectacular!)

Opportunity for convection activity with possible hail and sporadic thunderstorms along Southern counties tonight into the morning during the passage of a Low and it's associated fronts, might be a chance for observing lightning along Southern coasts. Already a lot of earlier sferics and a few new ones from the weather making its way towards us. Could get a convection line going along or off the S . S/E coasts in the early hours that could produce lightning and strong gusts along the Southern coasts. . Plenty of shear available.

Rumbles here near Tralee, storms going up along the coast, probably a few strikes closer to the shore that are not showing up on the map.

I see some sferics out at sea, but the lights in the house just flashed here, so maybe there is something near by?

Wet and windy weather countrywide tonight, with sleet and hill snow in the north for a time. Spot flooding is likely as a line of thundery downpours moves eastwards across the southern half of the country. A clearance to showers will follow from the south overnight

Small active cell passing over Athenry now. Very long rumbles of thunder and some heavy hail.

Thunder and lightning followed by hail just now. East Clare. Sounded like it was directly overhead.
Edit: another boom. Sounds like it's moving south towards Limerick. It must be the same cell that was over Athenry.

Moderate sleet with a bit of hail and a few flakes of wet snow thrown in for good measure in North Kildare. Very convective gusts as well.
