Weekday Weather Forecast – Oct. 31st – Nov. 2nd

Good morning, everybody. Sorry for being out of “business” for so long. However, once again, in meteorological terms, there was not much happening during my absence anyway. From what I’ve seen, that’s going to last at least until Wednesday, so it looks as if all those ghouls and goblins will have a dry night, externally…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Oct. 19th – Oct. 21st

Belated good morning everybody. Following a bit of a fight with my computer and Windows, I’m back up and running. Not that I would have missed anything weather-wise. The current weather is about as entertaining as reading through the pages of a phone directory. We are firmly under the control of a high pressure area…

Weekday Weather Forecast-Oct. 17th – Oct. 19th

Good afternoon, Cork! Did everyone get through the weekend without being washed away? Turns out those weather alerts by Met Éireann were well founded. The good news is that this should have been the last of the heavy rain for the foreseeable future. Our old friend, the Azores High, is coming over for a visit,…

Weekend Weather Word #3 – Of Highs and Lows

Good afternoon, everybody. I hope you were able to get through Friday and Saturday while staying reasonably dry. With the desert firmly out of my system and me firmly entrenched in everyday life here in Cork, it’s time for another Weekend Weather Word. In the last two installments, I wrote about a few resources that…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Oct. 14th – Oct. 16th

Weather Warning in Operation: Status Yellow!Met Éireann has issued a yellow weather alert for rainfall for Cork and Kerry. They are expecting heavy rainfalls, totaling 25 to 40 mm between 9 AM today and 9 AM on Saturday. The reason behind that is of course that low pressure area developing pretty much right above us….

Weekday Weather Forecast- Oct. 12th – Oct.14th

Well, so much for the weather being easy to predict, two days on, and it’s all change. That low pressure area I talked about last time has drifted off into the south and into the Bay of Biscay for the time being. However, it has not dissipated as I had expected. In fact, over the…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Oct. 10th – Oct. 12th

Well, looks like the forecasts for the next week or two look pretty easy. Ireland is squarely in the grip of a massive high pressure area centered around Scandinavia. There is currently a strong low pressure area moving in from the mid Atlantic, but that will decay and fall apart before it even comes close…

Weather Forecast: Oct. 5th – Oct. 7th

Good morning everybody from sunny (and scorching!) Dubai. I really wish I could send some of that heat up to ye guys. Though, looking at the forecast charts, it doesn’t look too bad for the next couple of days, in fact it will even be mostly dry. The rest of Wednesday looks like quite a…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Oct. 3rd – Oct. 5th

Hi everybody. Please excuse the delay in getting this forecast published. I’m heading off to Dubai for a couple of days of heat, and I had to make sure I don’t forget anything, like my passport for example. Anyway, the rest of Monday looks wet, VERY wet. Spot flooding is a very real possibility all…

Weekend Weather Word #1 – Staying Alert

Hi everyone. For once, it’s not a weather forecast I’m writing here. Instead, I’ll use this new type of post to just talk about weather in general, about the tools I use to come up with my forecasts, and about tools that anyone can use to keep informed. In fact, some of these tools are…
