After weeks of dry weather we have rain at last today - it was good to see a 'soft' day! The plants have been crying out for it, and it will put out the remains of the wildfires.
April was hottest on record in some parts, we recorded 20.5 degrees C on 10th April, with night time temperatures at the beginning and end of the month below 3 degrees C.
April's weather data can be downloaded here or from the link on the right of this blog.
There is an excellent monthly report from Met Éireann which can be seen here
