sounds nice … friday 2am


#1953

Yep has the feeling of calm before the storm, what are the chances of blanket decision to call juvenile games off with a yellow storm warning. I know its early in the week but with some juvenile championship and league matches on it would be terrible to play them in gaelforce winds.


#1954

12 degrees at 2am! That the storm dragging all the warm air up from Africa!


#1955

And sodden pitches!


#1956

That app has it battering the west coast mostly, but looks pretty shitty all round.


#1957

Look at wind direction for the east coast though, could be coastal flooding.

Anyway, too early for intricate details. Tomorrow will firm up on who gets the worst and by how much. Storms like this are difficult to nail down.


#1958

Whats the weather forcast for Saturday around 12.15? I have an u11 go games. Do I need me umbrella!


#1959

during the week it looked like it might miss us altogether, lots of tall trees near the new gaff - making me nervous.


#1960

See 2nd paragraph of post above!


#1961

What are you doing on this site if you’ve an U11 game on Saturday. You should be in school ! :grin:

Umbrella on a windy day your a brave man. As others have said it hard to know when and where it will hit. If it looks bad Friday I think CCC1 u-8 to u-11 should blanket call off games and then leave other games to clubs/refs and common sense.


#1962

right ted!


#1963

Wind should be gone so at least you can use an um-ber-ella, ella! Here’s Saturday midday forecast, heavy rain just having cleared east coast, light rain still there, pitches will be sodden but should be playable considering all the dry, warm weather just past:

Of course that’s 3 days away so heavy rain could be hanging on…


#1964

cheers Ted.


#1965

Flights out of Dublin on Friday evening be ropey enough?


#1966

was reading on the AA twitter feed that flooding of locals roads in mayo has started to ease. here is blue skies and lovely warm sunshine.


#1967

Yes. Some are full of drunken hens and stags.


#1968

Calm before the storm I think.

Below sent out be county board so they must be thinking some games are going to be doubtful.

The Weather forecast over the coming days is for a lot rain.

For all competitive competitions Clubs should be familiar with the relevant regulations:

IMPORTANT NOTE : CCC2 will reschedule any U16 Hurling Championship games not played this Saturday (due to both Clubs having unplayable pitches ) to Saturday October 27th ( Bank Holiday Weekend).


#1969

As expected, Met E have issued the warnings:


Status Orange for Friday early hours. Expect changes time and level and maybe even further warnings in days after.


#1970

The rain is needed that river is back to its lowest level. I don’t know why it’s almost at a standstill only barely getting over the weir. Last year salmon were struggling to get over becuase of the flow. Now they’d be beached.


#1971

This time next week I’d say you’ll see noticeable improvement. Though it now looks like the worst of the rain over the next few days will hit the south and east, as much as the west, though I think all areas will get quite alot over the next week.
