Latest Laois News: Weekend Weather Outlook for Laois

TRENDS for the week of 17 to 23 July 2021

Laois Weather Outlook is fantastic for almost next week

Temperatures will average 3 to 5 deg above normal values. Rainfall will begin to return to the normal picture around Friday 23rd, and could amount to 10-15 mm in places. Sunshine will be 25 to 50 per cent above normal values for most, perhaps closer to average in a few coastal areas of the west and north. Very light winds during the day and calm at night most of this coming week.

Just to continue on with the regional rather than daily theme, from now to about Thursday mostly sunny and very warm (some will be thinking hot) especially inland with highs each day 25 to 28 C, and overnight lows quite balmy too with readings only falling below 18 C towards sunrise (perhaps reaching 15 C briefly). Coastal areas will be somewhat cooler especially near the west coast and some parts of north Ulster. Sea fog will be out over the water and may not spread inland at all, but could be found on a few outer headlands.

Sunday brings a slight risk of localized thunderstorms in west Munster, near higher terrain, and forming where a weak sea breeze boundary sets up a few miles north of Cork (city) to south Kerry. By Thursday this pattern may begin to break down with increasing cloud in the south and slightly cooler temperatures as a southeast wind begins to blow at 30-50 km/hr. By Friday most guidance seems to favour a full breakdown of the warm spell / heat wave (as you wish) with a band of showers and embedded thunderstorms moving north. This has some potential to become heavy in Leinster and east Ulster, but we won’t know too much about the specifics for a few days yet.Once that breakdown occurs, the trend will be generally towards more unsettled and somewhat cooler weather with highs 19 to 23 C.
