Weekend Weather Word #7 – Atlantis-on-Lee

Well, Cork is finally getting its flood defences, after I don’t know how many years of political wrangling. And what is the first thing people do? They whine and complain about how these crucial defences will in effect destroy Cork. Seriously, is no one EVER satisified in this country, and especially in this city? Seriously,…

Pre-Alert for Severe Weather Event – Jan. 25th – Jan. 26th, 2017

As mentioned in my weather forecast, it now appears highly likely that Ireland will be hit by a severe weather System on Jan 25th, 2017. The culprit is a complex of strong low pressure areas that is currently located just south of Greenland. This multicore storm complex will spawn a low pressure trough along its…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Jan. 23rd, 2017 – Jan. 25th, 2017

Good Morning everybody. I hope you’ve come through the weekend well and are not a victim of the current cold/flu wave that has the office sounding like a GP surgery. The cold weather over the last few days has certainly benefitted the spread of such diseases. The good news is that it will get warmer…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Jan. 18th – Jan. 20th

Hey everybody, I hope you feel better than the weather looks at the moment. I mean it’s not exactly bad, it is just, well, meh. And, given that we’re still sitting under a pretty strong area of high pressure, that won’t change, for the next few days at least. If anything, the high pressure area…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Jan.16th – Jan 18th.

Good Morning everybody. Even though the office sounds like the sickbay aboard USS Enterprise (NCC-1701, no bloody A, B, C, or D!), I still hope you made it through the weekend okay. There certainly wasn’t  too much happening weather-wise, and that will be the general them for the next week as well. High pressure is…

Weekend Weather Forecast – Jan. 13th – Jan. 15th

Happy Friday the 13th, everybody. I apologize for not publishing any forecasts this week, I was involved in a rather complex project at work, and quite frankly didn’t have the time for it. Sorry about that. Anyway, I hope you all got into work safely, with those “record” amounts of snowfall. Seriously though, given some of…

Weekend Weather Word #6 – Netatmo Personal Weather Station

Me, a prepaid MasterCard containing my Christmas bonus, all the stores airside at Schiphol Airport, and a five-hour layover. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the definition of a perfect storm. Perfect storm for the credit on that Mastercard, that is. But wait a minute, this is a weather blog, why the hell am I spamming it…

Weekend Weather Forecast – Jan. 6th 2017 – Jan. 8th 2017

Good morning, everybody. I hope you made it through the rain without any major issues. I’m not saying it’s raining badly, but the road outside my home was blocked for several minutes by a guy called Noah transporting wood for an ark. He may be on to something there. The good news is that once…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Jan. 4th, 2017 – Jan. 6th, 2017 

Good Morning and happy new year, everybody. I hope you all got 2017 off to a good start, and your new year’s weather was better than mine, which amounted to freezing fog, sub-zero temperatures, and snowfall at the airport on the way back. Anyway, as far as Ireland is concerned, the cold spell over the…

Fair winds and following seas!

Well what do you know? Another year is already over. You can say what you want, 2016 has been a turbulent year, if not particularly from a meteorological point of view, from a Cork perspective at least. In the three months this blog has been online, the tenor of most forecasts has been high pressure,…
