Heavy rainfalls ongoing - Sunday 15th Nov ==>

I was going to post this in the now-closed Level 2 wind alert thread but as it needs a new thread, I have gone with a level 1 Alert as that will be more widely applicable, level 2 rainfall has already fallen in parts of north and west Connacht but situation from now on more likely to correspond to level one. Parts of the southeast will not receive enough rainfall to reach even that, but this will apply to most of the west, central and northeast counties:

Rainfall amounts on Saturday, reported on the met.ie website, include 66 mm at Newport, 46 mm at Knock and 40 mm at Finner Camp.

Today a further 20-30 mm is quite possible over these areas. About 5-15 mm of that has probably fallen since midnight. Flooding that began yesterday in some parts of Connacht and west Ulster may as a result resume or become slightly worse, before a dry interval starts late today lasting into part of tomorrow.

Unfortunately there are signs of further heavy rainfalls during the week, particularly on Tuesday. The GFS model shows accumulated rainfalls by Thursday of about 75 mm in some parts of west Munster and Connacht.

Sorry the usual suspects including myself were evidently a bit distracted over the past two days, it was not so much a case of missing the event as having our minds on other things perhaps. This thread is therefore a buck short and a day late, but at least discussion can continue.

I am not one for exaggeration but we've had a hell of a lot of rain in west Galway the past 2 days. And it's still lashing.

Strange there isn't even a level 1, I keep checking if my trampoline is still in the garden after every big gust.
