Dry Start to September
September is going to be a reasonably dry month for Ireland especially in the first half of the month with temperatures around normal at 17 to 20c. After midmonth more unsettled weather tries to push in
Dublin Heavy Rainstorm but little flooding - why?
August 2nd 2014 saw some really torrential rain in Dublin as over 90mm of rain fell. In normal circumstances this would have resulted in severe flooding. However due to the dry nature of the Summer up to now the rains caused little flooding apart from some road flooding on the M1 and M50. Land saturation did not occur to any great scale and by Monday 4th August it was a case of what rain?
So far this year there has not been any extraordinary weather apart from the stormy tidal Winter and the warmest temperature for the year at 27.7c in Oak Park on 25th July.
