TRENDS continue mild and increasingly wet, over the next week to ten days, with the south coast perhaps most at risk of excessive rainfalls by end of that interval. Sunshine a bit deficient and winds sometimes quite strong.


TODAY will become breezy to windy, with partly cloudy skies across some regions, more frequent showers developing in west then spreading to other regions later. Some embedded thunderstorms with hail, could be rather intense over parts of Connacht and west Munster. Winds southwest 40 to 70 km/hr with some higher gusts possible near storm cells. Be aware of potential for local disruptions (inland northwest to midlands). Rather cool with highs 11 to 14 C.

Some unsettled weather in prospect for next 24/36 hours

TONIGHT rain and wind easing off, scattered showers then partial clearing. Lows 4 to 7 C.

SUNDAY some dry and bright intervals in the morning but rapidly changing to windy, wet conditions as southerly gales develop, veering to southwest by evening, 60 to 90 km/hr (local gusts to 110 km/hr possible in northwest). About 15-25 mm rain can be expected, mostly in the afternoon and evening. Highs 14 to 16 C.

MONDAY improving conditions will set in overight and most of the day should be partly cloudy and mild with morning lows 8 to 10 C, afternoon highs 14 to 17 C.

TUESDAY also rather mild, partly cloudy to overcast, lows near 10 C and highs near 15 C.

Further stormy weather is expected to develop mid-week, perhaps taking most of Wednesday to reach Munster, and early Thursday for other regions, once it arrives, this will result in strong winds and heavy rains with temperatures steady around 13-15 C. A number of secondary lows are likely to follow in behind this storm and prolong the wet weather which may begin to approach excessive totals in the south by the following weekend (22nd-23rd). Temperatures will remain in the 13-15 C range. Strong east winds mid-week and on a few occasions later on. Still indications of a cooler interval to end the month.
