Week’s Laois weather forecast

TRENDS remain the same, temps 2-3 deg above normal, little if any rainfall, rather cloudy but perhaps enough sunshine to approach the June normals (5-6 hours a day), and moderate southwest winds much of the time.
TODAY will feature some sunny intervals and rather warm highs of 19 to 22 C. It may start out rather cloudy especially near south and west coasts, and some places could have persistent low cloud from the onshore “marine” flow, but further inland and near the east coast it should be at least bright with variable cloud, if not sunny. Winds southwest 30-50 km/hr.
TONIGHT will become more cloudy in general with outbreaks of light rain, drizzle, and formations of mist or fog, quite muggy with lows 12 to 15 C.
TUESDAY will be cloudy with a few brighter intervals, drizzle or light rain at times, only 1-3 mm likely from this however, and muggy with highs 18-22 C.
WEDNESDAY will bring somewhat longer bright intervals and sunny spells, with less mist or drizzle in the same humid southwesterly flow, lows 12 to 15 C, highs 19-23 C.
THURSDAY to about SUNDAY will probably be a touch warmer still with some sunshine likely each day, fairly long sunny intervals possible in the east at times, and quite humid too, lows 13 to 16 C and highs 20 to 25 C. Winds will be generally a bit stronger south to southwesterly 40 to 60 km/hr.
By late Sunday or early MONDAY (14th) a strong cold front will arrive, winds will turn more northerly behind this, as low pressure dives southeast into the Biscay and Iberian regions, causing this front to drag to a halt over Britain by late Monday 14th, which may keep Ireland under cloud and a light rain at times (heavier rain likely where the front eventually stalls from France into Britain). This set-up will persist for a few days then will be followed by more unsettled conditions and there are some signs of quite a cooler turn to the weather after the June summer solstice.So would expect highs in the 15 to 19 C range in the week of 14-20 June and perhaps a touch lower than that towards the following week
