Abstract

The synoptic event is described, and the dynamic and ordographic influences responsible for the highly localized nature of the mesoscale precipitation signatures outlined. Extreme precipitation was the causal factor, but the event draws attention to perceived changes of flow regimes and landuse in the upper catchments of river in North Antrim. A need exists to closely monitor the hydrological characteristics of these catchments in order to calibrate more precisely the flood hazard in this part of northeast Ireland
