Met Éireann Weather App

Posted April 18th, 2018

Today I launched Met Éireann’s new Website and App. For the first time, the Irish Public will have online access to 7 day forecasts for their own local area on Met.ie

I would strongly encourage the public to download the new Met.ie app from their Phone App store as it is a highly intuitive and easy to use product. You will be able to view 7 day forecasts, including predicted rainfall and temperature, for your own local area along with the latest weather observations including live rainfall radar images. Vitally, you will also be able to see the latest weather warnings for your county. It will be a very useful tool for the Irish public as they go about their daily routine both as general and more specialised consumers of weather information.

Met Éireann’s Website is amongst the most visited public sector sites in Ireland. It has played a critical public safety role in communicating Met Éireann’s weather warnings during severe weather conditions. Met Éireann’s previous Website received 412,000 and 328,000 daily visitors during the peak of Storms Ophelia and Emma respectively.
