Fleeting Signs of Spring

Castleisland on February 2There were signs of Spring this morning as the sun made a welcome if rare appearance. Though there were banks of heavy, black cloud all around the horizon, there were patches of blue sky as well. However, it appears that too will be short lived as the forecast is for anything but hope and blue skies. Today’s forecast from Met Éireann for the Munster area is as follows:

Bright or sunny spells this morning, but scattered showers also. Cloud will increase gradually during

Tonight will be very windy and mostly cloudy, with patches of rain and drizzle, becoming widespread later in the night, with some heavier bursts and a risk of flooding. Winds will strengthen further, with a risk of risk of strong to gale force south to southeast winds and severe gusts, especially in the south and southwest, where there is also a risk of coastal flooding.
