Forecasts for Ireland

TRENDS for the week of 30 March to 5 April, 2020

— Temperatures will average 1 to 2 deg below normal values.
— Rainfall will average around 25 per cent of normal values.
— Sunshine will average near or slightly less than average.


TODAY will be cool but with less of a breeze, so in some sheltered spots it may feel a bit warmer. There will be considerable cloud in eastern counties, thinning out to partly cloudy skies central and sunny at times near the west coast. Highs will reach 10 C.

TONIGHT will be partly cloudy, any clear intervals in the south may be frosty in a few spots. Lows -1 to +4 C.

Weather shaping up well for the week but to be colder than normal

TUESDAY will be partly cloudy, mostly dry, but with some light and isolated showers near the north coast. Highs 10 to 12 C.

WEDNESDAY will be cloudy with a few brighter intervals, lows near 2 C and highs near 11 C. Some rain at times in Ulster and northern coastal districts of Connacht.

THURSDAY will be mostly cloudy with showers becoming a bit more widespread in the north and sometimes reaching central counties, in a moderate westerly breeze of 40 to 60 km/hr. Lows near 4 C and highs near 12 C.

FRIDAY and SATURDAY will be overcast and a bit milder with occasional rain and highs near 14 C.

The outlook calls for a gradual warming trend next week with temperatures perhaps as high as 16 C by mid-week, and while there will likely be some rain, it won’t be too heavy and some days may remain dry.

My local weather on Sunday was cold with outbreaks of light snow passing through, highs only about 3 C.
