It's very far off but no harm to have a thread regarding the Weather for the Summer. Hopefully it will not all be in May as usual.
A yr ending with an 8 doesn't bode well. 2008,98,88,78..were all poor summers.
Add to that low solar activity ,so a poor summer is likely this year imo.
2008 sucked in fairness, rained nearly every day.
And also all years beginning with 1*** and 2***...
I've already posted my early thoughts on both seasons.
I’ve lurked on this forum for years but the deludedness is hilarious.
Summer is the same every year. Lovely calm May and part of April usually, couple of nice days at start of June. Then 14c and blustery and rainy till October, when the wind stops again. It’s the worst of our seasons, the hope kills you.
Often times the best thing about summer in Ireland is you don't have to fly too far to get summer weather!
If we get 6 or 7 days of blues skies and temps of 20C+ between late May and early September then that will do. Some year's we struggle to even get that. If those sunny days end up being Saturday's and Sundays then even better. Really looking forward to having a few decent bbq's over this summer. The first half of Summer 2017 was fairly decent here for bbq'ing but very little opportunities were to be had after the 1st week of July.
I’m going to count them this year what I’d count as a fine summers day in Dublin. You’re right though 6 or 7 is max usually.
