Weather manipulation is a reality: Snow and Ice in Ireland in June.

The UK is under attack…

“Bizarre Irish weather for June has resulted in an ice storm in Donegal and pounding rain and flooding throughout the country.

The ice storm left several inches of ice near the village of Termon in Donegal the Irish Independent reported.

Local photojournalist Frank McGettigan stated he had never seen anything like it “No one around here has ever seen anything like this in June before. It was really odd.”

A Met Eireann forecaster Joan Blackburn expalined the phenomenon “All rain starts as a frozen product,” she said. “A downdraft would push the hail down quicker than it can melt, and this is not unheard of. Also, it’s not particularly mild, and because the shower is so intense, the hail doesn’t have time to melt and fall as rain.”

Forecasters warned there is no let up in sight for the Irish with heavy rain and flooding predicted nationwide making last week’s heat wave a fond memory.The weekend will be unsettled, with some dry spells. “It has been wet — and it’s going to be wet,” Ms Blackburn said”.
