Reporting of observations from Met Éireann Weather Stations.

A Meteorological Officer performs the basic technical duties in the Meteorological Service. These duties include the performance of weather observations, the care and maintenance of meteorological instrumentation and communications facilities, computer operations and computer programming. Readings are taken hourly at all our weather stations (every half hour for aviation stations). Wind direction and speed, dry bulb and wet bulb temperatures from which humidity is calculated, atmospheric pressure and tendency, cloud (amounts, types and heights), visibility, the current or present weather during the hour and also weather that has occurred over the previous three hours, known as the past weather. The readings are coded and entered into a PC where they are quality controlled before being transmitted via modem to Glasnevin in Dublin.

During the daytime both Birr and Kilkenny are manned, whereas in the evening time the stations are automated. Roches Point is fully automated, as is the Air Corps station at Finner.

Selecting any location on the map or the corresponding links along the side will take you to a summary of that location.
