Daily weather forecast update

And we had a super day here dry all day

I was in Leap for the tractor run, it started raining just as the tractors left at about 1:15pm & got heavier after that, lots of water on the roads between Leap & near Reenascreena, dry some of the way home & then rain again in Dunmanway (nothing new there)
Brother was saying no rain around Ballinascarthy.

Not much fun today without a cab !

Ah ffs, will this winter ever f@€k off
There's a pivot point Tuesday, Wednesday next week. Yesterday only GEM and ECM were giving HP moving in. Now GFS today is showing it. But the ECM has backed off slightly with it lasting and the GFS has it building well.
If you wait long enough for the weather. You'll get it. No guarrantee on how many years that'd be though..
If you don't laugh you'd cry.
 
not really surprised at this ,only half a mm of a difference between the first 3 months of 23 and 24 at my met eireann gauge.

Have you got the comparable 2023 figures for down south? Or better still the long term averages?

The bigger issue is how wet Q4 2023 was.

Hard to believe March 23 was worse than the one just gone by 50mm, I knew last march was wet but this one felt worse, the dry feb 23 probably meant ground was able to handle it better

Probably how the rain was spread out more in 2024, I.e. practically every f.... day!

You can. Have a look yourself. Just use the above website and type in your location.

I did one for Cork. The black line is the last 12 months and the border between the dark and light blue is the long time average.

As you can see in Cork, March was higher than the scale had gone before.

It was July, Sep, Oct and Dec that really did the damage here.

go into met eireann
hit menu, click on climate, then available date , and select monthly data.
it's only the 26 stations , gives the monthly averages for last 3 or 4 yrs plus lta 's...
on the app or that one might get more locations, but I'm not familiar with it.
basically sure it's raining since end of Sept 22 here bar last Feb and part of june
 
I see met eireann issued a ' climate statement ' for March there after 9 o'clock news.

Something else to play on the people's conscious going forward
