Severe storm alert for Meath Kildare Dublin

Thursday 6 October 2011 _ 4:15 p.m.
__________________________________

Radar indicates powerful squall line developing through Meath heading south and likely to hit parts of Kildare and Dublin within the hour, alert lasts to 6 pm and may be updated further south. Potential for wind gusts to 70 mph and large hail, thunder, torrential downpours, and local (F0-1) tornado development. Watch for updates. Would appreciate any observations as squall line passes.

Was just looking at that trough/squall line on radar - looks really well formed.

It passed over us around 2pm and as I mentioned in the current conditions thread I got absolutely drenched! Nothing out of the usual here though, heavy rain/hail and strong gusts but its been like that with every shower. Seems to have intensified over land though

Should be right under it atm here in Meath according to the radar, not a lot happening - light to moderate rain, a bit breezy, that's it - unless it has a sting in it's tail.

Looking at the latest radar it looks like ordinary rain now, appears to be fizzling out. No reports from anyone about thunder etc, nothing showing up on Laois lightning detector.

I was out in Killiney/Dalky earlier cycling and the wind was unreal.
I also got a serious soaking on the way home and head to battle a strong headwind head home for Tallaght.
If the weather gets worse than what I got earlier, this'll be MAD!

Edit: It's oddly still in Tallaght ATM.
