Sunny spells, scattered showers and humid weather in store – Met Eireann

Good sunny spells are forecast for the week ahead, with some scattered showers and it will turn humid as the week goes on, according to Met Eireann.

There is generally a lot of dry weather forecast today, Monday, with sunny spells and well scattered showers.

There will be good sunshine in parts this morning and once again this evening, however Met Eireann has said it will feel fresher compared to recent days, in moderate occasionally fresh west to northwest winds.

Highest temperatures today will range between 15 to 19 degrees Celsius, the best of these values in the southeast of the country.

It is forecast to become drier again this evening with just isolated showers, mainly occurring in the far northwest.

According to Met Eireann it will be rather cool overnight, with slack westerly breezes, and lowest temperatures 8 to 10 degrees.

Predictions from Met Eireann for the coming seven days indicate that it will be a week of light rainfall for most areas, with only coastal fringes of the west and northwest experiencing normal or slightly above normal precipitation.

In fact, much of the midlands, east and south may record less than 10mm of rain for the week, according to Met Eireann.

Drying and spraying conditions this week will be relatively good and all lands will remain trafficable for the week ahead.

Tuesday

Met Eireann has said that tomorrow, Tuesday, will start off mostly dry with good sunny spells but cloud will build through the day.

Again, some showers are forecast to develop in the late morning and afternoon, generally well scattered, with many southern counties holding fully dry.

Highest temperatures will range 14 to 18 degrees (coolest in the northwest), in a mainly moderate northwest breeze.

On Tuesday night, much of the midlands, south and east should stay fully dry under broken cloud.

However rain and drizzle will affect parts of the north and west, as lowest temperatures range between 10 to 12 degrees, in mostly moderate westerly breezes.

Wednesday

According to Met Eireann, Wednesday will be a generally cloudy day with some outbreaks of rain and drizzle.

The rain is forecast to be heaviest across northern counties where it may turn persistent, but much lighter across southern counties, possibly even staying dry here with some sunny spells.

Highest temperatures will range between 14 to 19 degrees, in moderate westerly winds (coolest in the northwest, mildest in the far south of Munster).

Thursday

Current indications suggest that Thursday will feel like a mild and humid day as winds become west to southwest and freshen.

While many areas are forecast to hold dry with warm sunshine at times, patchy drizzle developing occasionally too, mainly across northern and western coastal areas.

Highest temperatures will range 17 to 20 or 21 degrees , best values across the midlands and east.

Friday

According to Met Eireann, Friday will be a dry day across many areas to begin but rather breezy in fresh westerly winds.

Outbreaks of rain are forecast to gradually push into Atlantic counties, turning heavy at times here later.

The rain will tend to push eastwards later in the day, but will be light and fragmented across the midlands, south and east, it said.

Highest temperatures will range 16 to 22 degrees, warmest, driest and brightest, all the while, across south Leinster and east Munster.
