I've heard this guy on the Matt Cooper show a couple of times. He is generally wheeled out at this time of the year to entertain us all on his prognostications for the year ahead. Oddly, he is never invited back on when he is, usually, proven totally wrong in his forecasts.
Weather guru Ken Ring says we're in for a summer scorcher - Weather - Independent.ie
The only thing that he has going for him is that his forecasts are for exact dates. Looking at the list he is very specific,which is unlike the old "John Joes" that RTE usually go to up in the hills of Donegal.
I remember one year when Cooper pressed him and he specified a week in July as being exceptionally sunny. It was the week of the Oxigen festival at Punchestown which was a complete washout. In addition, there was a major incident in Dublin Bay involving youngsters sailing which necessitated a major emergency operation, and just to complete the nationwide misfire, there was the major drugs haul from a boat that capsized off Cork. No doubt tonight on RTE this will be reported as if its gospel. The story would be better if they analysed what he had forecast for us last year
