Weekend Weather Forecast – Sept. 29th – Oct. 1st

Good Morning, everyone. Welcome to the best day of the week, Friday. Just so you know, the weekend weather will be rather unusual. We’ve got the remnants of Hurricane Maria out over the North Atlantic at the moment, they’ll hit us over the weekend. No hurricane force winds, don’t worry, but significant amounts of rainfall,…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Sept. 27th – Sept. 19th

Good morning. My weather advice for today is: just keep swimming 😊 Seriously, strong rainfall continues throughout most of the country this morning, storm drains can’t cope, and some roads down here in Cork are flooding. Take care out there. I’m afraid the outlook isn’t much better. We’ve got a succession of storm systems forming…

A Year already?

The WordPress app reminded me on Saturday that it’s been over a year since I started this blog. Time really flies when you’re having fun. It originally started simply as an online repository for the regular weather forecasts I do here at work every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and to be frank, the visitor numbers…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Sept. 25th – Sept. 27th

Good Morning, everyone. Hope your Monday got off to a better start, donuts or not. Following quite a foggy start, Monday looks like a pretty good day to be fair. Unfortunately, that good weather will not last. For the last three to four day, a severe rainfall event has consistently been forecast for Wednesday by…

Weekend Weather Forecast – Sept. 22nd – Sept. 24th

Good morning, and welcome to the weekend, everyone! The weekend is upon us, and not day too soon if you ask me. That being said, the weather over the next few days will be rather unsettled, as Ireland sits right at the interface between a strong high pressure area centered over Scandinavia, and a series…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Sept. 20th – Sept. 22nd

Good Morning. Well, it isn’t really good when you look out the window. We’re at the receiving end of a large atmospheric “conveyor belt” that’s shoving one area of rainfall after the other our way. This is connected to a series of large but weak low pressure areas over the Atlantic that direct humid, subtropical…

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

Good Morning, and happy Monday, everyone! *gets drowned out by boos and hisses* Okay, okay, I get it. You’re no fans of Monday, either. Well, at least the weather looks okay-ish for part of the week ahead. This is mainly due to a thoroughly chaotic weather pattern over the Atlantic. A convoluted mess of weak…

Weekend Weather Word #9 – Hurry, Hurry, Hurricane!

Those of us who have been following the news over the last few weeks will remember the hullabaloo made about a “hurricane” hitting Ireland a week or two ago. While most of the fears were blown (pun fully intended) out of proportion, there was more than just a grain of truth in this story. Ireland…

Weekend Weather Forecast – Sept. 15th – Sept. 17th

Good Morning, and welcome to yet another Friday. The weekend ahead looks rather nice from a weather point of view, although it will be distinctly on the cool side. The blocking high between the Azores and Greenland is still pretty much in position, although it is showing signs of weakening. That being said, we’ll still…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Sept. 13th – Sept. 15th

Good morning, everyone. Sorry about the lack of forecasts last week, I was out of the office due to a funeral, and am only now getting back into the daily grind. That being said,  I have both good news and bad news for you: The good news is that a blocking high is building over…

Weekday weather Forecast – Sept. 6th – Sept. 8th

Good morning, everyone. The last few days turned out to be quite nice, and today won’t be vastly different. However, chances for a longer dry period remain slim, as multiple weather models now forecast significant weather events on Friday and Sunday, with strong rainfall likely on Friday, and high winds expected for Sunday. This rather…
