Let's all take a few seconds to marvel at an ALMOST rain-free Ireland

There are currently NO extreme weather warnings in effect. Given the last two months we’ve had — this, in itself, is now news.

IN ANY AVERAGE year, a mid-February day with temperatures expected to struggle as high as ten degrees would not be the sort of thing we’d be composing a post on.

“What is this, The Weather Journal?” Commenters would no doubt opine. And they’d be right.

But given the fact that we’ve had a two-month long conveyor-belt of storms — one of the worst spells of sustained bad weather the country’s seen in decades — we thought it might be worth a few seconds of our time to take in the current rainfall radar picture for the country:

In terms of the actual outlook, it’s to be mainly dry today — temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees in light to moderate winds.

It will turn even milder tomorrow — as warm as 12 degrees, but with a little drizzle around in the afternoon.

So not exactly spring yet — but in terms of fine late winter weather, we’ll certainly put up with it.
