Heavy rain in Midlands and East this evening, risk of lightning

Hi all,


Looks like some maybe very heavy rain for a time in some parts this evening with a risk of thunderstorms developing. Could lead to some spot flooding.







The Midlands and East look most at risk but most places will see heavy rain at times later today and overnight. The lot pushing North over night.

Yes the bbc show big massive green spots coming over me so maybe some thunder storms tonight, but that rain on the radar dosen't look too heavy. Lets hope so it would get rid of the boring weather.

Heavest rain will over the eastern half of the country this evening, roughly between 3 and 9 ish. Fairly good chance there will be some thunder mixed in there too. Horrible conditions for July.

Met Eireann's 18Z aviation Significant Weather chart has some isolated embedded thunderstorms in an area covering all of the country. The only mention of thunderstorms for any of the TAFs for the 13 airports on the island is for Galway, from 15Z.

Bucketing down here now. If today's heavy rain isn't enough for you.
The good news is that next Tuesday and into Wednesday we should have an area of Low Pressure moving in right over us.

Next Thursday looks to be the best day for convective activity this summer , we better just wait and hope GFS doesn't decide to change it's mind.

in fairness i think the west of Ireland has seen only a fraction of the rain that the east has seen over the past 3 days, water levels must be back to normal here now.
