Laois Weekend Weather
FIRST TASTE OF WINTER NEXT WEEK?
VERY UNSETTLED OUTLOOK
Our weekend weather looks set to bring with it some very unsettled conditions as a depending area of low pressure off Ireland’s northwest coast steers in some heavy rain and strong winds at times, with the strongest winds on southwest and southern coasts. There will be some sunny spells too in between the outbreaks of rain or heavy showers, but this will generally remain in short supply.
Interestingly both the GFS and ECMWF weather models indicate that we may experience our first taste of more wintry weather later next week as a series of low pressure systems skirt just to the south of Ireland. This will allow a northerly wind to develop in their wake, drawing in some cold showery conditions with a change of some snow possibly over higher ground.
Tomorrow, Saturday, will be wet and windy for many parts with showery outbreaks of heavy rain from time to time. It will be blustery also with gusty southwesterly winds. Feel cool in the rain and wind.
Sunday will begin a little drier and brighter, especially across the northern half of the country, however showery outbreaks of rain will again develop more widely during the afternoon. Risk of gales for a time in Munster and southeast Leinster.
Monday, Tuesday and Friday will be mostly overcast next week with further outbreaks of rain, with the rain on Friday possibly wintry over higher ground. Wednesday is likely to be the best day of the week, with Thursday rather showery, some possibly turning wintry over the high ground of Connacht and Ulster.
Further updates to come tomorrow.
