Wet & Blustery (Friday 24th Aug) Munster & South Leinster

Another area of low pressure to scrape the south coast from early tomorrow morning. Some heavy and possible embedded thundery showers expected.
Southerly winds gusting 60km veering to the West as the low moves further East. The Rain is expected to move inland where id imagine 25mm possible 30mms of rain can be expected in some places over the course of the day. This could lead to some minor problems on already saturated ground.

Area of highest instability for risk of thunder currently is in the SE tomorrow afternoon .

Looking good for the South East... 1100 j/kg of CAPE and a lifted index of -4 for tomorrow afternoon if the GFS is to be believed!

An upgrade for storm risk in the south tomorrow afternoon, will be an interesting one to keep an eye on! Not often we see these CAPE and LI values here.

I know this is kind of an "In my backyard" question, but any possibility of any thunderstorm activity down around the Dingle peninsula from this? Down for a few days and would love to see some sparks coming in off the sea.

Have we broken any records yet? I was up about 7am and its now 2pm and I don't think it has stopped raining at all (Tramore, Waterford, I can hear the rain beating on a glass roof) for 7 hours, and no signs of stopping.

No thunder in Enniscorthy but non stop rain which has gotten steadily heavier as the day has gone on.
