GALLERY Cork Airport And CB Clouds

iWeather Online's Fergal Tierney visited Met Eireann's meteorlogical station at Cork Airport over the weekend.  

Fergal said: "I took these looking SSW from Cork Airport weather station around midday today. There were no other clouds in the sky, a beautiful calm morning, but these beauts stood to attention around 50-60 miles away, as can be seen from the sat pic for the time. The observer quoted their bases as 540m....not an easy feat from that distance!"

"I also took a few photos of the weather station itself - right along the road at the entrance to the airport", he added.
