Weather Symbols in Ireland

Here’s today’s forecast from Met Eireann, the Republic’s weather service.

Weather Symbols Ireland

The symbol in the lower left corner is the typical weather for Dublin. On a good day, we get the sun-rain-LIGHT-clouds symbol (upper-left and upper-right symbols).

It seems a little surreal to combine every possibility into a single symbol, but it really is the most effective way to communicate a forecast. The forecast for the four regions in this clipping makes sense to me, and I’ve only been here a short while.
