2013’s extended summer set to end this week
The unseasonably high temperatures being felt right across the country are forecasted to fall later in the week, according to Met Eireann.
The fantastic September weather wise for farmers saw both below average rainfall and temperatures above average in almost every county. Temperatures as high as 21 degrees were experienced this week in some parts.
This is all set to change though from midweek, with daytime temperatures falling back significantly with ground frost expected by night.
According to Met Eireann: “A change will be felt on Wednesday and the following days, although Wednesday will feel coolest due to scattered rainfall and fresh to cool northerly winds. It is expected that Thursday and Friday will feel less cool as dry days are predicted with best temperatures expected in the south of the country.
The most significant change will be felt at night as forecasters predict “grass frosts later in the week”. This change will undoubtedly curb the excellent grass-growing conditions seen throughout the past month.
