    Temperature is a key indicator of changes in the climate, measurements and analysis are essential for assessing the affects of climate change. The value of high quality observations to the meteorological and climatological scientific communities cannot be overstated. Historical observations are of particular value since an observation once made ...

    These are generally very reliable but, as with any system, human or automatic, errors can happen from time to time. During automatic operation, the “Weather” is estimated by an optical instrument. Classification of weather-type is significantly more difficult than measuring temperature or pressure and the result is occasionally incorrect.

    Climate of Ireland. The dominant influence on Ireland’s climate is the Atlantic Ocean. Consequently, Ireland does not suffer from the extremes of temperature experienced by many other countries at similar latitude. The warm North Atlantic Drift has a marked influence on sea temperatures. This maritime influence is strongest near the Atlantic ...

    The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) recommends that climate averages are computed over a 30 year period of consecutive records. The period of 30 years is considered long enough to smooth out year to year variations. Henceforth Met Éireann will reference 1981 to 2010 as the baseline period for day-to-day weather and climate comparisons.
