Abstract

This article describes the synoptic event and the dynamics and orographic influences responsible for the highly localised nature of the meso-scale precipitation signatures. Intense precipitation had its most dramatic impact in Ballycastle and Cushendall, where flooding was widespread. The event acted as a cataclyst in promoting the recent inception of flood alleviation schemes in the area. It is now recognised that the hydrological characteristics of river catchments need to be closely monitored in order to calibrate more precisely the flood hazard in this part of North-East Ireland
