Latest Laois News: Laois Weekend Weather update

Forecasts for Ireland courtesy of Irish Weather Online

The coming week will feature dry weather for most areas with small amounts of rain tonight and possibly around Tuesday of next week, but not amounting to more than 2-4 mm in either case; temperatures will be fairly close to seasonal averages and sunshine also likely to total about the normal amounts with high pressure somewhat tainted by patchy cloud, however there is potential for some places to see better than average sunshine, and the most significant detail may be generally light winds — it should be a reasonably good period for drying which is badly needed in most areas.

TUESDAY will be partly to mostly cloudy with isolated showers, lows near 4 C and highs near 10 C.The rather bland weather pattern will slowly break down later in the week and it will become more active in the second week of March, details keep changing and we may not get a very clear picture of trends for temperature until middle of next week (for the second week) but it does occasionally appear rather windy with rain returning to the forecast.
