Some very heavy rain in North Kilkenny (near Tullaroan) this afternoon.
Followed by some very impressive lightning

Not often you can see it so clearly during the day light hours

Since around 6.30pm there is a much fresher feel to the weather and the sun has made a reappearance.

Edit; looking east towards Castlecomer/Athy area there still seems to be allot of very tall cloud tops.

Nice line of convection producing thunderstorms along the Southern coasts today with convergence very much in effect I would reckon , decent surface temperatures and cold upper pool with good lapse rate as the trough made progress across the South of the country. Heard there was very heavy rain near Killarney but only a light shower over near Tralee.












Funnell just outside Tralee near Camp on the Dingle Rd. this morning.

Has the look of having widespread similar type thunderstorms tomorrow, short lived pulse type storms but the uppers are that bit colder then of late with a bit more Deep layer shear although not as warm as it was along the S today. Again convergence zones and sea breezes and orographic lift coming into effect.

Scattered thunderstorms could break out in areas away from the Western coastal areas and look to peak in the Eastern half of the country in the afternoon and again along S and SE coasts I reckon.

Some impressive looking dark cumulonimbus clouds looking out my window in Dublin 16. Most likely no thunderstorms tonight but maybe tomorrow will be the day for Dublin.

And here's Knock airport, with the weather station enclosure that greener part of that square grass area in the centre of the picture, just to the right of that building with the light blue roof. The airport is closed for a few days, so all hourly reports are automated, with no weather or cloud data.

Met Éireann showing higher temperatures than I thought for the East tomorrow, will be interesting to see if the convection kicks off in the afternoon.

A not too insignificant rotating lowering/funnel passed directly over me at home late this evening in North Kildare. I was positioned at the south west end of a hefty shower, just about away from its rain core. I'd estimate the bottom of the funnel like feature was somewhere between 50m and 100m above ground level. Was very interesting to. Did a very quick timelapse of it with my phone as it passed. Apologies for the big change in exposure level in the video, was trying to darken the scene a little but the phone went overboard.

Most of the action stayed North of Waterford City but still a few decent strikes in the distance.

Big convection brewing here in Tralee, slowly moving inland, bit of heat off the sun too.
