Weather Update for coming weekend for Laois

Friday, 5 January, 2024 __ Forecasts for Ireland

TRENDS: Temperatures 2-4 deg below normal, mostly dry, some additional sunshine. Little change foreseen in second week of outlook.

Glorious bright, sunny and settled weather for a while yet.


TODAY partly cloudy with frequent sunny intervals in south, east and central counties, cold, isolated wintry showers mostly in Ulster or near any higher terrain in west, and winds northwest to north 30-50 km/hr, highs 5 to 8 C.

TONIGHT clear intervals, cold, frost widespread, lows -3 to +1 C.

SATURDAY a mixture of cloud and sunny intervals, cold, isolated wintry showers possible near northwest coasts, highs 5 to 8 C.

Looking good for least another week.

SUNDAY-MONDAY and into next week, partly cloudy to sunny and cold, with some persistent fog or low cloud trapped in a few inland valley locations, light to moderate southeast winds, a few wintry showers possible near south and east coasts. Lows generally in the range of -4 to -1 C and highs 4 to 7 C, possibly a bit lower where fog is persistent.

This cold spell could last quite a while, if there is any moderation of temperatures around weekend of 13-14 Jan, it may then turn colder again with another week similar to the coming week. Some guidance shows the next occurrence of any milder weather with any rain would be around 19-20 January.
