☔️VERY UNSETTLED WEEK AHEAD
⚠️HEAVY RAIN & STRONG WINDS MIDWEEK
🌦COOLER FRESHER NEXT WEEKEND
There’s a significant change in our weather expected to develop through the coming week, and unfortunately it’s not a very pleasant change. From Wednesday onwards the Atlantic looks set to retake control as the remains Post-Tropical Storm Kyle bringing a risk of some heavy rain and potentially strong winds during the midweek period. With a strong jet stream flowing eastwards out of southern Canada and directly across the Atlantic our weather looks rather mixed for quiet some time.
Monday will begin rather overcast in many areas though there will be some sunny breaks in places also. Scattered heavy showers or outbreaks of rain will become more widespread through the afternoon and evening with a risk of some thunderstorms developing, especially so across the centre of the country where there will be a risk of some localised flooding and hail. Still warm on Monday with highs of between 19-22 degrees Celsius.
Tuesday will be the best day of the working week, and it’s recommended that whatever outdoor activities you may have this coming week are done on Tuesday. Dry and settled weather develops as a brief ridge of high pressure quietens down our weather for a day. Feeling pleasant in the sunshine with mainly light winds and temperatures reaching up to 20 degrees Celsius.
Wednesday will begin dry across the Midlands and North of the country however a spell of heavy rain and strong south to southeasterly winds will already be in place across Munster and South Leinster. This wet and windy weather will spread north through the morning and into the afternoon with a clearance to sunshine and showers following from the south in the late afternoon and evening. Highest temperatures of up to 18 degrees Celsius. Gale warnings are likely for a time on southern coasts.
Thursday will begin dry and bright with just scattered heavy showers pushing northwards across the country. A spell of windy weather with gale force winds looks like developing through the afternoon and evening, accompanied by some heavy showery rain with a risk of thunder. Winds may gust to 100-110 km/h in coastal areas of the south and west. Further details on this event a little closer to the time. Highs of between 17-19 degrees Celsius.
Friday will be a similar day to Thursday with another small but possibly strong micro low pressure bringing a renewed spell of windy weather with coastal gales. Like Thursday there will also be some heavy showers with localised thunderstorms developing. Winds again could reach in excess of 100 km/h in coastal areas of the south and southwest. Highs on Friday of between 17-18 degrees Celsius.
Current indications suggest that Saturday will be a quieter day with a ridge of high pressure allowing for a mainly settled day with some nice spells of sunshine and just scattered light showers. Highs of between 17-20 degrees Celsius in light westerly winds.
Sunday looks a little more unsettled as another area of low pressure approaches from the west leading to increased winds and the chance of some outbreaks of rain at times. Confidence in Sunday’s forecast is small given that it’s a week ahead and details are likely to change a little closer in time.
