How do folks, getting to that time of year again when we start coming out of hibernation.  Perversely it's looking a tad warm this weekend lol, as Ronan says I would rather not have this cold early and no sign anyway.  The remnants of Opheila do stir the interest though

Strongest winds could coincide with rush hour tomorrow evening, coupled with heavy rain, could make for an interesting journey home.

Indeed Pomeroy, looks a tad further east as well on the last update. Will be an interesting evening of model watching ahead!

I would be lying if i said i wasnt worried about tomorrow,exciting in one way,very scary aswell. With the way the climate is changing im not too surprised an event like this is going to happen tbh. I know we cant blame every big weather event on climate change but i feel it certainly hasnt helped at the least in regards to tomorrow.

This is going to be incredibly dangerous. I've never heard Met Eireann use the language that they have used over the last 12 hours. Unprecedented, Widespread structural damage, disaster and fatalities. I finish work at 9am. Wish me luck!

Dept of education down south have closed all schools, so I'd imagine it's the same up there dude.
