A blocking high prevents the migratory movement of systems that cross its latitudes. The "Azores High" is a subtropical high over the Northern Atlantic that dominates the weather pattern for Ireland and can activate days of rain and cold or periods of perfect weather. I received a call from Pat Quigley who regularly accompanies Baton Rougeans to Killarney. Monday evening he reported that at 10:30 PM, the temperature was 82 degrees and according to the locals, it hasn't been this warm and dry for seven years. Past Grand Marshal of our St. Patrick's Day Parade, Tim O'Brien, had perfect weather for his 8,000 cyclists, assisting those in need. Paddy also noted that Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley took 10 Euro from him by paring Number 12 at Tralee.
