Not a bad day at all in South County Dublin.

Calm, dry, 15º and plenty of sun.

Went up the mountains for a walk and even there it kept sunny, calm and dry.

You can't ask for much more in Ireland in mid-May really.

Mad!!!

Would never have thought that would be possible.

Nope. Not in weather/meteorological terms.

To me this is typical summer weather, except technically it's not summer yet it's usually a few degrees warmer and we usually get a period of calm in May/June before it goes to downpours, some sun, dark clouds, the type of weather you find it hard to make plans around.
I always associated May with calm weather and plenty of sunshine, but this year it looks like that isn't happening and we're just in the usual unsettled summer weather already.

This morning was nice here. It was sunny and bright but certainly not warm. This afternoon was another washout rained most of the afternoon some really thundery downpours. It’s stopped now the sun is out but the sky is very black around. 17 days in and May had been a disaster. Just saw the forecast after the news there. Awful looking forecast. More rain and strong winds for late Wednesday Thursday and into Friday.

If we don't get some nice weather come June maybe a protest outside Met Eireann would get the message across that it's just not good enough?
