TRENDS for the week of 5 to 11 April, 2020

— Temperatures will average about 3 deg above normal values.
— Rainfall will average only 25 to 50 per cent of normal, a considerable amount of that falling later today, so rather dry for the rest of the week.
— Sunshine will average near normal to 25 per cent above normal values.


TODAY will be partly to mostly cloudy with outbreaks of rain and gusty south to southwest winds developing, reaching 60 to 90 km/hr with possibly higher gusts. Rainfalls of 5 to 15 mm are likely, heavier amounts probably being found in the southwest, central and northern counties by the end of the day. Highs 13 to 16 C will feel quite mild despite the strong breeze.

TONIGHT will see gradual clearing after midnight, with the southwest winds remaining quite blustery at 50 to 80 km/hr. Lows near 7 C.

MONDAY will bring a mixture of cloud and sunshine and passing showers, but there will be a trend to less windy and more settled conditions after mid-day. Highs will reach 12 or 13 C.

TUESDAY will be sunny with cloudy intervals, and mild, with morning lows 1 to 4 C and afternoon highs 12 to 15 C.

WEDNESDAY will be sunny with increasing high cloud, some chance of a shower by evening in western counties, and highs 17 to 19 C away from somewhat cooler coasts.

THURSDAY will be partly cloudy and warm with a few isolated showers, mainly in the west, and highs 17 to 20 C.

FRIDAY and the rest of the EASTER weekend will probably stay fairly settled and warm too, but with less confidence in the outlook and so will hold the temperature forecast to about 17 C in case cloud does increase.

The OUTLOOK beyond the weekend is for a somewhat more unsettled weather pattern but continued rather warm for April, as winds continue to be mainly south to southeast, but with pressure falling and some disturbances entering the scene from the south.
