    Yeah we still have the NW wind blowing. I forsee a Summer of many days of NW or N winds . 14 or 15c n sunny here.

    Temperatures generally 11 to 13C across the country, a bit warmer in the south-west. Hard to believe it's the first day of summer with temperatures very dissapointing at the moment.

    Well fe&k it I'm wearing my summer dresses(ok with a coat over them🤣)whether the weather agrees or not.

    It's actually lovely in NCD, loads of sunshine so feels warmer than temperatures suggest.

    Thankfully not too windy here pauldry.

    I have my very scientific measurement of my dress not blowing too much in wind today.

    Well it turned into a stunner of a day in Dublin.

    The barbecue is on, and relaxing in the sun.

    I think it said only hit 16 but in that sun it easily feels like 20 degrees.

    Gorgeous day North Wicklow. Blue skies.

    What should it be like Sunday in Dublin?

    I am going to a festival and don't want to be dancing in the rain?



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,374 ✭✭✭ appledrop


    So far it looks like no rain in Dublin on Suunday, but you know yourself that forecast could change in 5 mins with Met Eireann🙄.

    It is looking like the windy weather will be back again.



  • Registered Users Posts: 70 ✭✭ Mazzy Star


    Cheers thanks.

    Accuweather was saying rain on Sunday in Dublin city but I don't know how reliable that would be.

    Wind doesn't bother me as I will be looking resplendent in my yellow session parka.

    As long as I don't have to break out my matching wellingtons I will be happy!

    Lovely day yesterday and pleasant in the sun. Even the wind behaved itself yesterday. You can still feel the coolness in the shade or when a cloud covered the sun.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,425 ✭✭✭✭ Supercell


    Glorious start to the day though looking at the satellite images that may be short lived here in Dublin.

    A stunner of a morning here in NCD.

    This is unreal, although I think the clouds are due later on.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,943 ✭✭✭ OldRio


    Rain and cold. We had the heating on for a wee while this morning.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,096 ✭✭✭ PlentyOhToole


    Wow - not good.

    Next week looking like the west will have a few sunny days at the start of the week with highs of mid to late teens - rain forecast for later in the week though



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 14,691 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Gonzo


    a cloudy start to the day here in Meath and currently dry, however there is plenty of rain on the way over the coming few hours and into tomorrow with a dryer interude over the weekend and back into unsettled conditions for next week. Overall we are looking at a fairly unsettled pattern for June.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,607 ✭✭✭ pauldry


    Yesterday will count as 1 good day of Summer 2022 in Sligo. 18c and 10hrs of sun. Today won't. 12c and raining.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,124 ✭✭✭✭ Thelonious Monk


    RTE has a high of 10c for Dublin on Sunday lol



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 14,691 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Gonzo


    yep, this weekend is going to be chilly, particularly for eastern and southern areas on Sunday and Monday. The summer forecasts are starting to appear now and they are not good. A mixed summer overall with rain never far away and dry days to be relatively limited.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,311 ✭✭✭ Oscar Bravo


    Despite a wet forecast its dry here in Castlebar and brightening up from the west



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,204 ✭✭✭ highdef


    Up till a couple of days ago, both Saturday and Sunday were looking rather pleasant with plenty of sunshine and temperatures close to 20° but a bit cooler in eastern areas. Whilst Saturday is looking like being OK in most parts of the country (mild to quite warm in the western third), Sunday is looking poor or very poor in many areas, particularly the southern half/two thirds of the country with temperatures in most places in low double digits.

    I’ve been “predicting” a bad Summer these last few years- we had one in the late 2000s I think where it rained pretty much every day for 3 months - we get these on average once a decade so we’re over due at this stage- summers go the last number of years haven’t been too bad compared to what we could get and have got inthe past- I’m not hopeful at all about summer 2022 - a very cold dull May and a bad start to June- at least the LC students will be happy 😂

    Lovely start to the day but the cloud has rolled in now and gone noticeably cooler. The very south coast is clear and I can see it teasing me from my house. East Cork.




  • Registered Users Posts: 6,241 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    Absolutely glorious day in S Wexford. Feeling nice and mild too.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,124 ✭✭✭✭ Thelonious Monk


    I think it was actually one of the warmest Mays on record no?



  • Registered Users Posts: 19 Red devil 99


    RTE farming forecast last Sunday was way off. Still can’t say what Sunday will be like. They do be very slow to backtrack after predicting good weather. Lots of silage still waiting to be made.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,374 ✭✭✭ appledrop


    Well the sunshine didn't last in Dublin.

    It has also gotten noticeable cooler as the day has gone on.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,096 ✭✭✭ PlentyOhToole


    This year? 2022? Couldn’t be- I’d be normally in sandals and shorts at this point but only wore them a few times throughout May - there were some real cold days there and not a lot of very warm ones either- last Saturday was the first time I got a bit of good sun



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,943 ✭✭✭ OldRio


    Just an update. It's rained all day and is still raining.



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 14,691 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Gonzo


    somehow i've managed to avoid the rain all day even tho heavy rain has never looked more than 10 miles away on the radar since early this morning.
