Friday, 10 November, 2023 ___ Forecasts for Ireland
TRENDS will be close to average for mid-November although probably a little milder than normal.
TODAY strong westerly winds near south coast for a few hours this morning will soon abate, and most regions will have partly cloudy to sunny skies, with a few showers in Connacht and Ulster, highs 8 to 11 C.
TONIGHT clear intervals except cloudy in west Munster, scattered frosts inland and lows -2 to +4 C.
SATURDAY increasing cloud during morning, overcast later, rain slowly pushing into west Munster by evening. Highs 7 to 10 C.
SUNDAY breezy and milder, occasional rain, lows 4 to 7 C and highs 9 to 12 C.
MONDAY variable cloud, showers, breezy, lows 5 to 8 C and highs 9 to 12 C.
TUESDAY cloudy with rain, possibly heavy across south, risk of strong winds although storm track so far looks to be close to southeast coast and so moderate east backing to north winds could be expected. If this system shifts north, it could bring strong southwest winds as it currently appears set to do for southern England and northern France. Lows near 5 C and highs near 9 C.
WEDNESDAY breezy and rather cold with passing showers, some with hail and thunder, winds westerly 50-80 km/hr. Lows near 4 C and highs 7 to 9 C.
THURSDAY partly cloudy, breezy, isolated showers, lows near 2 C and highs 7 to 9 C.
FRIDAY some dry intervals and mostly cloudy, lows 1 to 4 C and highs 8 to 11 C. Rain in west by late in the day.
The further outlook calls for rather windy conditions at times as strong Atlantic lows track towards Iceland but they are large and powerful enough to spread outer bands of rain and stronger winds into Ireland at times. It looks like one more Atlantic tropical storm or even hurricane could form near Cuba in about a week and remnants of that could be among this constant parade of strong lows later in the month. For the time being, colder air masses are shown confined to home base in Scandinavia and western Russia.
