  1. I live in western Ireland and we have had a cold winter since mid November with a couple of short milder interludes. Weve had the kitchen sink here, snow, sleet, hail, thunder snow, thunder hail, thunder and lightening, gales, storm force winds, many frosty and icy mornings, evenings, and some ice days. Flooding was also an issue. Temperatures around 0 to 4 degrees by day and -2 to 1 by night in average. Best mild spell was the run up ri xmas which was great for xmas shoppers. Was a very entertaining winter, quite cold was the default weather, with very cold spells and 2 mild spells.

  7. Is the cover on properly on your weather sensor? Is your weather sensor near anything that produces heat? like an outside boiler...
  8. Hi Darren, take the batteries out of your sensor and weather monitor for 24 hours, that will allow the device to reset to factory default...hope this helps.

    Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    @Gray-Wolf was it an atmospheric river we received in December 2015? If memory serves me well, didnt we get 3 days of non stop rain dragged up from a moist jet stream... Winter of 2013/14 was incredible for storms being picked up on a powerful jet stream from new foundland, i remember the flooding being bad that winter...
