Changeable weather in store this coming week

There is a mixed bag in store this weekend weather-wise, with changeable conditions likely, according to Met Eireann.

This morning, Friday, is forecast to be cloudy, humid and quite damp with patches of rain, drizzle and fog developing.

Clearer, fresher weather with sunny spells and scattered showers is expected to spread from the northwest during the afternoon and evening. The winds are set to veer westerly in direction.

Highest temperatures will possibly range from 17º to 20º. It will feel warm, especially in the southeast where some hazy sunshine may develop, Met Eireann added.

It is expected to be mostly dry tonight, with just a few scattered showers, as temperatures drop to around 10º.

Drying conditions are expected to be good tomorrow (Saturday), but after that will be poor in showery conditions and longer spells of rain over the coming week.

There will be good opportunities for spraying on Saturday, Met Eireann added.

In terms of field conditions, soil moisture deficits are still running around 30mm to 40mm along parts of the southeast, which could restrict growth.


A bright, fresh day with sunny spells and dry apart from isolated showers. Highest temperatures 15º to 19º in moderate westerly winds with good drying conditions.

Cool and dry tomorrow night. Lowest temperatures of 6º to 10º in light breezes are given, with some fog patches developing towards daybreak.


Sunday will bring a dry, bright start for many which will then become generally cloudy with scattered outbreaks of rain developing. Highest temperatures of 15º to 19º in fresh south to southeast winds. It will become humid during the day, according to Met Eireann.

It is expected to be mild and humid on Sunday night with patches of rain, drizzle and fog likely.

An Atlantic airflow will prevail next week, bringing changeable weather over Ireland with a mixture of sunny intervals and blustery showers likely.
