Weather in January 2017 – West Of Ireland (Mayo)


These are the figures for January 2017. We are at 109 metres above sea level in the West of Ireland and have the benefit of having a weather station at Knock Airport close by (11 miles as the crow flies) We are about 24 miles from the nearest coastline. Knock is higher than us at around 200 metres. You can see the Monthly data for Knock Airport produced by Met Éireann but what that misses is the thing that we see so little of, the Sunshine! I acknowledge Met Éireann as the source of my Sunshine, Rainfall and Mean Soil Temperatures and the comparison Max and Min temperatures to my own under the terms of Met Éireann’s copyright.

All these charts are freely available here. [→] The charts for this month get uploaded at the when the next month is posted.
