    When does the weather start warming up so you can take coats of when going to a beach for example? I want to go and take some nice photos of family and have found it is still cold to take coats off for even a few minutes on the beach! Have tried to the last few weeks and been unsuccessful as it is still so cold to even take off for 10 mins

    :/

    Is this your first Irish winter?

    Either way, I'd say typically from late March onwards

    It depends on how hardy you are. Are you a Christmas day swim in nothing but a swimsuit or, a wetsuit even in the middle of Summer type of person?

    When the temperature hits 15C people will go to the beach! I think it depends where the wind is coming from. As others have said it could be after Paddy's Day but could also be as late as mid-April!

    Hopefully soon I cannot stand the cold, I despise it.

    I've always had it in my head that Paddy's day is the end of it all and it usually starts to warm up a bit then and the days are that bit longer. In saying that I have videos of snow in April at home so..

    Usually once every 8 years

    We're going to have one of those long hot summer's starting on the middle of July.

    It'll be a a really dry warmth, not your sticky damp heat we get here usually.
    The fields will be golden with cut hay and this will enable the climate change narcissists to justify their lies and gaslighting.

    They're is going to be an influx of sub tropical fish along the Clare coastline and it won't be uncommon to hear of trigger fish being used to say oh my god here's more proof the climate has changed.
    Even though trigger fish have been visiting our shore lines for thousands of years along with sunfish and 6 gilled sharks, turtles and other colorful marine dwellers

    All these floods are proof that there's a lot of idiots in positions who haven't a clue about drainage, land management and proper ditches which didn't interfere with the natural flow of rivers and streams long ago.
    Employing gombeens who know more about pints, sport and making money than what the applied for.
    The local authorities are full of intelligent idiots in responsible positions but lacking any cop on or lustre to get out there and get their hands dirty.

    When you haven't that connection to the land, you've no business trying to justify stupidly and lack of awareness.

    It is winter :confused:

    Although I can remember February here when I could sit out with coffee and no coat....

    Patience! And you will get hardier...

    when does the weather start warming up? That can vary greatly from one year to another. Most year's we hold onto winter style temperatures till mid March, then it starts getting into the mid teens around April.

    Some year's we can get off to an early start, we have had 21C in March before and low twenties in April, but this is very rare. We usually don't get low 20's till May or June.

    Last year we didn't start warming up till the final days of June! Spring struggled with single digits and low teens most of the way. June was a write off last summer with temperatures struggling to get much beyond 12C for most of the month, particularly in eastern areas with a raw onshore wind most of the month.

    June 2018 was a completely different story, we had high teens and low 20s in the east while some western parts got close to 30C. There can be a big difference from one year to another when the weather decides to finally warm up.

    Sometimes there can be false hopes with a warm few days, then back to cold unseasonable type conditions, Easter last year was one of those, were we reached 22C, but then a few days later the temperatures went back to March type values and stayed like that till about the 23rd of June.

    Last year also brought some unseasonable warmth at the end of February with blue skies and temperatures getting close to 19C, it actually reached 21C in the UK during the same period and for February that is crazy. It was warm enough to wear shorts and a shirt outside, yet it was still winter. We very much paid for this afterwards with a cold spring and mostly rubbish summer.

    Mid to late April if things pan out reasonably average but it's Ireland we're talking about so there are wide variables. You could get nice Spring weather as soon as late March with a bit of luck. I wouldn't bet the house on it though.

    Tuesday....just not sure which one but definitely Tuesday.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 2,907 ✭✭✭ Stevieluvsye


    I always find from the Middle of May i can start leaving for work without a jacket and just a Tee shirt

    From memory the last few March, April's have been cold. But i class anything under 10 degrees as cold

    In the true sense of the word "Warm" I'd say a handful of days per year
    Mostly the wind comes off the Atlantic and even on the "Warmest" day the breeze can have a dampish feel to it.Something I've noticed since moving here from the UK over 20 years ago.The UK has "dryer" air by the time it hits them
    The wind direction sometimes comes up from the Bay of Biscay or Iberia (very rarely) then we get to sample proper "dry,mild winds":)

    Temperatures can differ widely in the United States in the spring time. One day could be near 30°C and the next day could be freezing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,114 ✭✭✭ PhilOssophy


    What is your definition of warm OP?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,820 ✭✭✭ Pa ElGrande


    The wind at North and East
    Was never good for man nor beast
    So never think to cast a clout
    Until the month of May be out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,368 ✭✭✭ Danno


    I'd generally class the weather from Mid May as pleasant outdoors weather but not really beach weather. The water temperature isn't pleasant until mid July IMHO.

    March comes in like a Lion and out like a Lamb.

  • Registered Users Posts: 788 ✭✭✭ frillyleaf


    I think towards April would be when it isn’t likely to warm up! Looked at a few photos from last year, coats still on in March and seems warmer once we go into April. I just want to get some take some nice photos of family so need to organise when to get together! Don’t want us to be all stuck in coats as they’ll be bulky and will take away from the photos.

    So I think it’s better to do them in April. It feels like it cold be too cold today for them. It is quite windy and wet on beach today so may do it another day instead :)

    It'll have to dry out before it warms up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,297 ✭✭✭ Hooter23


    You will still be asking this question when the summers over...:rolleyes:


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,192 ✭✭✭ Gaoth Laidir


    These are the stats for e.g. Casement. Warming starts to accelerate from about now onwards.

    Can clearly see the downward temperature trend starting from the beginning to August too! As we know Ireland gets a gold star for crappy Augusts!

    Normally a certain someone would come on here saying how the seasons are a figment of our imagination and a scam by Newton...but thankfully that particular storm seems to have passed in recent weeks.

    Gfs on netweather is indicating relatively warm and fine weather from the 10 March onwards. Highs widely 15 or 16 degrees with temperatures higher in a few favour areas. Confidence at the moment is low.
