Weather update for coming weekend

Thursday, 14 September, 2023 ___ Forecasts for Ireland


Remain the same as prior with average sunshine and temperatures expected in a wet week ahead, very wet for some with a particular wet episode coming up tonight into tomorrow Friday via a slow-moving weather front.

What has this weekend got in store on the weather front?

TODAY … A dry and bright start will be followed by increasing cloud as rain approaches from the south spreading northwards through the evening. This rain will be very heavy with Cork at a moderate threat of flooding starting tonight. Orange warning for rain here is valid from 6pm this evening to 6pm tomorrow evening whilst a yellow rain is in effect for other parts of Munster and much of Leinster. Possibly as much as 70mm falling in the southeast by dawn on Saturday. Staying dry in the north and northwest for much of the day with afternoon highs of 15-18C, lowest values in the south.

TONIGHT … Heavy rain will continue to impact nationwide overnight though and remain persistent, especially in the south and east. Again the risk of flooding continues. Minimum temps around 10C.

The lovely warm weather of last week is long gone.

FRIDAY … A very wet day in store with heavy rain set to continue again lingering around for much of the day. Further threats of flooding, including outside of Cork. Waterford, Kilkenny and Carlow look vulnerable to highest totals by the end of the day on the latest guidance. Cool for the time of year beneath the persistent heavy rain with maximum temps of only 12C. Sunnier spells might occur in the northwest as rain tries to clear but even here, temps up to only 14 or 15C likely. Note the poor visibility if you’re driving.

SATURDAY … Rain might continue in the east for a time due to slow-moving weather front but a day of sunny spells and possibly scattered showers with temperatures back to norm for the time of year in the mid-teens.

SUNDAY … Showers will merge into longer spells of rain bringing a cloudy, rather wet day. The east is likely to be most affected. Afternoon highs of 16-18C as winds veer easterly.

A zonal flow will bring further bouts of rain and increasingly stronger winds through next week as autumn shows its hand nearing the equinox. Looking further afoot, there’s little chance of settling back down again.
