    Your headline is most certainly clickbait....



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,836 ✭✭✭dacogawa


    Some of the charts are indeed suggesting a warm weekend. And that website is not known for being a clickbait site.



  • Registered Users Posts: 427 ✭✭Donegal Ken


    I am sure if you look at the models you will see that the ECMWF, GFS and GEM just it name some are showing temperatures in the high teens and could reach as high as 20C locally.




  • Registered Users Posts: 6,873 ✭✭✭pauldry


    14 to 18c widely perhaps a 19 or 20c sneaking in. Probably like that weather we had in March but more cloud around.

    Certainly fingers and toes crossed here. We have a place booked on AirBNB by Brackley Lake in Cavan over the easter weekend, would love to get some decent weather to enjoy the outdoors (and burn off the Easter Egg excesses!).

    Have a weather station?, why not join the Ireland Weather Network - http://irelandweather.eu/

    Thanks folks, will be interesting to see what pans out over the weekend



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,873 ✭✭✭pauldry


    It looks a downgrade now. Good Friday will live up to its name with 18c but getting more cloudy and unsettled by Easter Sunday. Then 10 to 13c and showery the following week.



  • Registered Users Posts: 887 ✭✭✭KanyeSouthEast


    10-13 degrees so kinda like Christmas but with brighter days.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,873 ✭✭✭pauldry


    Yes. It's only April. Save the heatwaves for Summer. It's a bit like any type of extreme weather that's predicted in Ireland is usually a lesser version than what's predicted originally. Bar mild weather in Winter.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,912 ✭✭✭OldRio


    In all fairness our best weather recently has been in spring and early summer.

    As for 'high summer' August? Always a let down.

    Where’s that bowl from Carlow gone? I heard him bullsh**ing about a heatwave this weekend. Someone really needs to explain to the average Irish person what a heatwave actually is.

    There's always a race to the bottom to be the first with the clickbait headlines of [insert weather event here], but for some reason the misfires never get remembered. At least Ireland's Weather Channel seems to have packed it in, at least on his Facebook page. He had the pomp and cheek to start charging for his nonsense.



  • Registered Users Posts: 575 ✭✭✭slimboyfat


    Not my headline, was taken direct from Donegal Weather Channel website.

    The end of last weekend into Monday was showing warmer conditions from good Friday and over the eastern weekend with some areas locally possibly up to 20C. Good Friday and Easter Saturday could see temperatures rise to around 17C in places still. It has downgraded since and the forecast giving at the time was based on the overall outlook from the models. The biggest problem these days is people would complain about the length the grass grows at.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,873 ✭✭✭pauldry


    Ya can't predict Irish weather. However CFS has a myriad of weather for the coming months. Some short warm spells and some wet ones. Nothing too extreme either way. This is probably quite likely (50percent) as the Atlantic is quite benign this year.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,219 ✭✭✭Gaoth Laidir


    That's precisely my point. These charts are posted way in advance of the reliable timeframe so that of they come true the poster can gain some sort of "rep". Forecasting is more than looking at charts.



  • Registered Users Posts: 427 ✭✭Donegal Ken


    4 days out is what I'd call fairly reliable time frame to honest. 1 week out 2 weeks out would be a different story.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,219 ✭✭✭Gaoth Laidir


    In some setups yes, 4 days can be reliable, but obviously not in this case.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,815 ✭✭✭sparrowcar


    You posted it in block capitals with an unnecessary amount of question marks after it.. clickbait whatever way you wish to justify it.

    Not having a go at you but these type of reposts just further advertise those silly weather pages.

    Practice what you preach then, in the article you were forecasting for the following Sunday, 1 week ahead!



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,010 ✭✭✭Neddyusa




  • Registered Users Posts: 5,912 ✭✭✭OldRio


    It was in this location. Co. Leitrim!



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,873 ✭✭✭pauldry


    Temperature in the low 10s in Sligo currently and lashing rain. Even knew forecast went belly up I didn't think it was going to be this poor. Cloudy n dry n mild for one day would have done.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,488 ✭✭✭Hooter23


    If there is fine weather or a heatwave forecasted just expect more rain...thats what i have learnt



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,873 ✭✭✭pauldry


    I said the same thing today

    Most forecasts are about 20 percent accurate now. They seemed better a few years ago. Did the pandemic wreck accuracy. Though it's not too hard to do a long range forecast for Ireland

    "Rather bland with some rain most days. One hot day in June and another 2 in July. Floods in August. Bland for Autumn again and extremely mild for November and December."



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,686 ✭✭✭firemansam4


    Yea living in the north west and hearing about 20c forecast for the country, you just know you should count yourself lucky to get up to 13c with an overcast day.



  • Registered Users Posts: 668 ✭✭✭PeaSea


    Currently in South Down and hoping the temperature gets into the low tens soon.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,335 ✭✭✭beggars_bush


    Beautiful afternoon/evening

    Slight bit of rain around 2pm and whoosh, the temperature went up 3-4 degrees

    Sunny from 2:30 onwards

    Temperature got up to 17.3c in a brief bit of sun in Sligo around 2pm then it lashed for 3 hours around 8mm of rain and much cooler and sunnier at 7pm.

    Risk of 40mm of rain in places this weekend.

    Kerry Cork 40mm

    Galway 30mm

    Mayo 25mm

    Sligo 22mm

    Clare 20mm
