This Week’s Weather

Monday, 2 December 2019 __ Forecasts for Ireland courtesy of Irish Weather Online 

TRENDS for the week of 2 to 8 December 2019

— Temperatures will average slightly above normal in parts of the west and north, trending to near normal central and east coast, and below normal inland south and southeast (by 1-2 deg).
— Rainfall will average near normal but most of that will occur around mid-week and again around Sunday. Most other days will be dry.
— Sunshine will average near normal as there will be a lot of broken cloud layers during dry weather.


TODAY will be partly cloudy to overcast with some persistent fog or mist over some valleys especially in the south and southeast. There it will also remain rather cold with highs of 4 to 7 C while further north and west it could reach 10 or even 12 degrees in some places.

TONIGHT will be partly cloudy with some dense fog in valleys, frosts returning to some parts of the inland southeast, lows -2 to +2 C, but milder elsewhere (3-6 C).

TUESDAY will continue similar to today with perhaps a slight rise in temperatures where the colder air is trapped in the southeast, highs closer to 7 C there, and again near 10 or 11 C further west and north.

WEDNESDAY will become quite windy with intervals of rain, 5 to 15 mm expected, heavier in the north and west. Winds southwest 60 to 90 km/hr will remove any lingering cold air and spread the 10-13 C milder air to all areas.

SUNDAY will be windy with rain and temperatures steady 10 to 12 C.

MONDAY will become colder with strong west to northwest winds and passing showers, some wintry on higher terrain in the north. Highs near 6 or 7 C.

The further outlook calls for this unsettled and at times windy pattern to continue.
