Weekday Weather Forecast – Dec. 11th – Dec. 13th

Good morning. I feel cheated! Everyone from Limerick to Birmingham is drowning in snow, while we down here in Cork were left high and dry. That is totally unfair, I feel discriminated against! In all seriousness, the “cold” spell over the weekend turned out to be a storm in a teacup. However, the weather reaction…

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…

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…

Weekend Weather Forecast – April 21st – April 23rd

Good morning everyone! Let me tell you, I could get used to those four day weeks! Especially, when the weather is as pleasant as it has been over the last few days! Alas, nothing good lasts forever, and while the weekend ahead looks quite nice, next week will see Cork being deep-frozen at night, and…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Feb. 27th – March 1st

Good morning everybody. It seems that, overnight, Cork has fallen into the grip of an arctic airflow, there were even snow showers overnight. And, to be honest, it doesn’t look as if we’ll see a major warming anytime soon. Northerly airflows and an unstable weather situation over the North Atlantic are dominating our weather, and…

Weekend Weather Forecast – Feb. 10th – Feb. 12th

Welcome to the big freeze, everyone. It looks like we’re in for quite a cool weekend. Okay, so it’ll be more than cool, we’ll be getting a blast of cold air straight out of Siberia, together with most of Europe. With any luck, it won’t last too long, the weather models currently indicate a warming…

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

Good morning. I’m not saying it’s frozen outside, but I’m pretty sure I faintly heard someone singing “Let it go” on the way to work. Seriously, most weather stations around Cork are reporting temperatures below freezing. My own weather station barely stayed above 0°C, and that’s in the city centre! And quite frankly, from the…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Feb. 6th – Feb. 8th

Good morning everybody, and a special good morning to all those who just returned from the sunny southwestern states of the US. I guess it’s safe to say that the Irish weather is welcoming you home in style! 😉 It does looks as if today’s inclement weather, and another, albeit weaker, bad weather front tentatively…

Weekend Weather Forecast – Feb. 3rd – Feb. 5th

Good morning everybody, and welcome to the calm after the storm. Cork got lucky yesterday, the low tracked more northerly than forecast by almost all models, reducing the impact somewhat. This paves the way for some calm, if cold, weather over the weekend, and some interesting weather patterns over the continent, with a series of…

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…

Weekday Weather Forecast – Nov. 21st – Nov. 23rd

Good morning everyone. I’m not saying it’s cold outside, but I’m pretty damn sure I saw some polar bears on the way to work today. Anyway, long-term forecasts indicate that it will remain chilly for the foreseeable future, as a major high pressure ridge develops over the British Isles and Ireland, so don’t put those…
