July Gets a Wet & Windy Start

E-mail Print PDF

Long ago in school we learned in geography class about the monsoon season. This season was only associated with hot countries which we never expected to see.wet and windy

This rainy season of course never came to Ireland. Nowadays it seems that we can’t be too sure any more if the first week of July is any guide. During the first six days of July 72mm of almost 3’’ of rain has fallen. To put this in perspective the heavy rainfall during the six days is more than the combined total rainfall for the months of April and May this year.

The fact that we have had rainfall each day in not that surprising but the severity of the rainfall is, at the end of June rainfall for the first half of 2008 had reached 463mm. maybe the weather will clear up by St Swithin’s Day (July 14th) but don’t depend on it. Of course we don’t want to see the skies over Tipperary crying on the day after the Munster Final.
