Weekend Weather Forecast – Feb. 9th – Feb. 11th

Good morning, and welcome to the weekend. Did you also look out the window this morning and say to yourself “snow way this is happening”?

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 – Jan. 29th – Jan. 31st

Good morning, everyone. You guys ready for another Monday? It’s okay, neither am I! And the weather isn’t too pleased either, judging by the steep drop of the outside temperature since 0645h this morning.

Weekday Weather Forecast – Jan. 24th – Jan. 26th

Good morning, everyone. Hope you didn’t get blown away last night, storm Georgina turned out to be quite a bit stronger than expected, at least up on the third floor.

Weekend Weather Forecast – Jan. 19th – Jan. 21st

Good morning, guys. Everything cool? Yeah, yeah, I get it. Frozen solid is more like it. Well, if it’s any consolation to you, the cold spell is about to end, with a prolonged period of mild, if wet, weather on the way. The strong North Atlantic Low that dominated our weather for the last week…

Good Morning, everyone! It sure was an interesting night, although we got nowhere near as much snow as I had hoped.

Christmas Weather Forecast 2017 – Don’t blame me, blame the weather!

Good Morning, everyone. Christmas weekend is finally upon us. The weather won’t be a cause for Christmas cheer. Christmas jeer would be more like it.
