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.
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.
In Cork at the weekend…

Bit windy round your way? Count yourself lucky.
Behold: one of the largest and longest-lived storms ever recorded in our Solar System. To wit:
First seen in late 2010, the above cloud formation in the northern hemisphere of Saturn started larger than the Earth and soon spread completely around the planet. The storm was tracked not only from Earth but from up close by the robotic Cassini spacecraft, then orbiting Saturn. Pictured here in false coloured infrared in February, orange colours indicate clouds deep in the atmosphere, while light colours highlight clouds higher up. The rings of Saturn are seen nearly edge-on as the thin blue horizontal line. The warped dark bands are the shadows of the rings cast onto the cloud tops by the Sun to the upper left. A source of radio noise from lightning, the intense storm was thought to relate to seasonal changes when spring emerges in the north of Saturn. After raging for over six months, the iconic storm circled the entire planet and then tried to absorb its own tail — which surprisingly caused it to fade away.
