We just experienced the rainiest November since 2009

Met Éireann said that the highest number of wet days was recorded at Valentia Observatory.

IF YOU THOUGHT that November was a manky oul rainy month, you were spot on.

According to our national weather forecaster Met Éireann, it was the wettest November since 2009.

But it’s not all bad news – we got off quite lightly in some ways. Met Éireann’s latest monthly report says that we even had more sunshine than normal in November, with the daily mean ranging from two to just over three hours of sun last month.

The sunniest day was recorded at Cork Airport on 23 November.

The temperature was typical for the time of year, but it was milder at the start of the month.

We also had a windy start to November, but overall it was “calmer than normal”, says Met Éireann.
