Spooky Halloween Weather Forecast – October 31st, 2018

Hey everyone, and welcome to this boo-tiful day 😊I don’t mean to spook you, but there’s “something” coming outside. It won’t arrive until the weekend though, until then, the current weather will continue to haunt us. That means mostly dry weather, with the odd rain shower mixed in, before pressure starts dropping towards the end…

Windy Weekday Weather Forecast – September 19th – September 21st

Good morning, everyone. I hope you made it to work safely, or stayed home. Looking at the damage and wind speeds registered in the Cork area, it is quite clear in my eyes that Met Éireann dropped the ball big time with regards to Storm Ali. The Northwestern counties were well into “Condition Red” territory,…

Weekday Weather Forecast – September 17th – September 19th

Good morning everyone. Hope you had a nice weekend. It looks like Helene is turning from a tropical storm into a tropical disappointment! Over the weekend, the storm weakened significantly, and was pushed onto a more southerly trajectory. The core of what used to be Helene is already collapsing, and the “dead” area around it…

Severe Weather Advisory #2 – Tropical Storm Helene

Good morning, everyone. Hurricane Helene has weakened to a tropical storm overnight, while still continuing its northward track. It will turn Northeastwards after passing over the Azores later this weekend, undergoing extratropical transition soon thereafter. It is moving close to the recently formed Tropical Storm Joyce, and from my perspective, it is possible that the…

Weekend Weather Forecast – September 14th – September 16th

Good morning, and welcome to the calm before the storm(s)! We are looking at a period of very unsettled weather, with storms likely pretty much every second day for the entirety of next week, starting on Saturday. A North Atlantic storm system will move through on Saturday, likely followed by the remains of Hurricane Helene…

Severe Weather Advisory #1 – Hurricane Helene

Well, it now looks all but certain that Hurricane Helene will hit Ireland early next week. The National Hurricane Center has updated its forecast to show a clear slant towards Ireland over the weekend, with West Cork, Cork City, Kerry, and Limerick squarely in the crosshairs. Those who know me and my forecasts know that…

Weekday Weather Forecast – September 12th – September 14th

Good morning everyone, and welcome to a glorious, if chilly Wednesday here in the Rebel County. Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts, because the latest model runs both by GFS and ECMWF, my go-to weather models, expect a significantly more turbulent period from the weekend onward, as the Azores High collapses, and North Atlantic low-pressure…

Weekday Weather Forecast – September 10th – September 12th

Good morning, and a happy Monday everyone! Here’s to another exciting work week. That was sarcasm, just in case you didn’t notice! Anyway, the weather is just as motivated as I am, it seems, with Ireland continuing to sit at the seam between our typical stormy North Atlantic weather pattern, and a more stable and…

Weekend Weather Forecast – September 7th – September 9th

Good News Everyone! The weekend is here. Unfortunately, there’s not much of a weekend feel to the weather as the North Atlantic Circulation begins to dominate the weather pattern over Ireland. This means that weather will get more changeable over the next few days and weeks. There’ll still be ample periods of calm weather in…
