How soaking?

Damian O’Halloran, of Weatheir.com, writes:

We are on course to see rainfall records for February being broken at some stations in Ireland. Rainfall amounts in the western half of Ireland are almost three times greater than those recorded in the east so far this month.

More heavy rainfall on the way for the north and west of Ireland (Damian O’Halloran, Weatheir.com)

This afternoon.

Cork-based political scientist Theresa Reidy tweetz:

“Well today is the first time I’ve seen tornado show up as current weather conditions outside.”

Yikes.

Anyone?

Yesterday: Met, Wet, West

UPDATE:

Phew.

Earlier today.

In Grange, Tullow, Co Carlow…

St Brigid’s National School tweetz:

“Some very ‘persuasive writing’ from 4th class as to why they should play in the sneachta.”

Mmmf.

Also, in fairness.

Let them out for pity’s sake.

Meanwhile…

Meanwhile, the Status Yellow snow/ice warning for the whole country continues until midnight tonight, while a Status Yellow wind warning continues for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry until 8pm tonight.

Caution urged as snow/ice warning in effect (RTÉ)

Honey.

You’ve got a big storm coming.

FIGHT!

This morning.

Met Éireann issued a Status Yellow wind warning for the whole country for tomorrow from noon until midnight.

It also issued a Status Yellow rain warning for Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford from 4am tomorrow morning until 7pm tomorrow evening.

Sigh.

Carlow Weather tweetz:

A lovely break in weather today with lots of pleasant winter sunshine. Make the most of it as the next round of wet and very windy weather is already lining up out in the Atlantic and will arrive tonight with an awful day ahead tomorrow. Turning much colder tomorrow evening too.

Sigh.

Meanwhile…

Met Éireann has released a “weather advisory” for Ireland tomorrow, from 4am until 4pm. To wit:

Tuesday will be a blustery day with strong winds and very gusty conditions associated with an active front moving eastwards across the country. Generally, winds will be below warning thresholds but damage to some structures and trees, already weakened from the effects of Storm Atiyah, is possible.

Rain and showers will be heavy at times as well, especially in Atlantic coastal counties.

Meanwhile…

In Cork at the weekend…
