Weekend Weather Word #10 – What the Fog?

After quite some time, I’ve finally found the time for another Weekend Weather Word. You could be forgiven for not having the foggiest idea what the topic is, even though it is pretty common here in Cork. I’m talking about fog, of course. While it is in effect just a ground-level cloud, few non-violent weather…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Nov. 8th – Nov. 10th

Hey everyone, after a one week hiatus to take care of some family matters, my weather forecast is back.

Weekday Weather Forecast – Nov. 1st – Nov. 3rd

Hey guys, half of the week is behind you already, and it looks as if the weather will remain mostly calm for the rest of the week. A series of strong high pressure areas over central Europe and the mid-Atlantic is keeping the polar circulation at bay for the time being. This will mean continued…

Hello everyone, and welcome to another exciting work week *narrowly avoids a salvo of rotten tomatoes and eggs*. Yeah, okay, it’s Monday, I get it! But if it’s any consolation to you, it looks like we have a quiet week ahead of us weather-wise. Following Ophelia and Brian, it appears as if a strong ridge…

Weekday Weather Forecast

Hey, everyone. Hope you weathered yesterday’s storm without too many problems. Given the amount of damage and power cuts across the country, we should really count our blessings that it wasn’t worse. That being said, don’t get your hopes up for a period of calm weather anytime soon. A massive trough of low pressure will…

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

Hey guys, sorry about the delay, I had a rather important meeting earlier in the morning. I’m not going to deny it, most of my attention is focused on Hurricane Ophelia by now, which is all but certain to hit Ireland on Monday. There will be a dedicated advisory for that shortly. However, there is…

Good Morning, everybody. Please be advised that this weather forecast will be accompanied later by a Hurricane Advisory for tropical storm Ophelia, which has a significant probability of hitting Ireland on Monday or Tuesday.

We’re looking at a rather turbulent week ahead, with strong weather systems expected on Wednesday and Friday. The latter one is still a bit unsure, but the first…
