TRENDS for the week of 25 to 31 May 2019 …

— Temperatures will be near average with somewhat cooler than normal readings in the first half of next week.

— Rainfall will average near normal amounts in the north but will continue below normal in some parts of the south. Most of the rainfall counting towards this total will be around Wednesday and Thursday after some smaller amounts on Sunday and Monday.

— Sunshine will probably average a bit below normal (which is about six hours a day).

This Weekend’s Weather Forecast


TODAY will be mostly cloudy with some mid-day and afternoon sunny breaks mostly in the midlands. It will feel quite humid and highs could reach 20 or 21 C inland, but 18 C around Dublin and 16 C near west coast where low cloud and spotty drizzle may linger.

TONIGHT will see frequent light rain showers and possibly a brief thundershower, with lows around 12 C.

SUNDAY will have clearing skies during the late morning then a partly cloudy and fresher afternoon with scattered showers, winds increasing to westerly 40 to 60 km/hr, and highs near 17 C.

What has the weather got in store?

MONDAY will be cloudy with a few breaks, and frequent showers, some rather heavy with hail and thunder. Lows near 7 C and highs near 15.

TUESDAY will be partly cloudy and cool with lows near 5 C and highs near 14 C.

WEDNESDAY will become overcast after a clear but cool start, then rain will sweep in although perhaps rather showery in the far south. Highs will be about 15 C.

OUTLOOK is rather uncertain, guidance has been wavering between cooler weather returning, or a continuation of the mid-week frontal zone weather with more showers and near average temperatures. Early June is starting to look a bit warmer again with fairly pleasant conditions most days and temperatures at least near normal if not slightly above at times.

Thanks to IWO for their forecasts

My local weather was overcast, muggy and showery with a few heavier bursts of rain and one or two rumbles of distant thunder. The radar was showing activity all over the region moving from east to west around a broad low pressure area in southern Washington state and central Idaho. This is going to keep pumping moisture our way and so we’re looking at a fairly wet weekend here (near the U.S.-Canada border in southern B.C.).
