Forecasts for Ireland
TRENDS for week of 15 to 21 May
-- Temperatures will average 1 or 2 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will average about 10-15 mm, a little below normal but above 50%.
-- Sunshine will average near normal, 5 to 6 hours a day.
TODAY will feature hazy sunshine and warm temperatures of 19 to 23 C except near some south and east facing coasts where sea breezes may hold down the maximum temperatures to 16 C.
TONIGHT will be hazy with increasing cloud and lows 5 to 10 C.
THURSDAY will bring a mixture of cloud and sunshine, isolated showers mainly in the southwest and western counties, and highs 17 to 20 C.
FRIDAY will be cloudy with a few brighter intervals mainly in Ulster and north Leinster, and highs will be near 17 C with rainfalls of 5 to 10 mm expected.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK is for partly cloudy skies both days, some scattered showers but a fair amount of dry weather too. Highs in the normal range of about 15 to 17 C.
NEXT WEEK should continue roughly similar with highs 16 to 19 C, isolated showers but also some decent sunny spells, before it starts to turn cooler and more unsettled towards the end of next week.
My local weather on Tuesday was overcast, still rather warm and humid with rain setting in around mid-afternoon, only a few mms locally and highs near 18 C. Feeling cooler this evening.
Please note, I am moving house this week and it looks like no internet at forecast time so it's possible that I will not be back on line until Thursday morning (your time). We are not going a long way from the current location but it's a bit further south and also a little higher above sea level, probably means more snow in the winter and similar weather the other three seasons.
