Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 21 to 27 August, 2019

-- Temperatures will average 2 to 3 deg above normal values, peaking around Friday and Saturday.
-- Rainfall will average 50 to 75 per cent of normal, but most of that will fall later today, and the rest of the interval will become quite dry.
-- Sunshine will average a little above normal, up to 35% in some parts of the south and midlands.

FORECASTS

TODAY will become windy and rain will move in quickly for western, central and northern counties, appearing by afternoon in the south and east. Amounts will vary from 20-25 mm in west-central counties, to 5-10 mm in the southeast. Winds south to southwest 50 to 80 km/hr by mid-day, easing slowly by late afternoon. Highs 17 to 20 C.

TONIGHT will have further intervals of light rain or drizzle in the east, slowly clearing in the west. Moderate southwest winds at times, with lows around 12 C.

THURSDAY will see partly cloudy, hazy and warm conditions in most areas, trending more to overcast with occasional light rain in the north. Highs 22-24 C for most, 18 C near some coasts and in the north.

FRIDAY will be hazy and warm with lows near 14 C (8-10 C inland south) and highs near 24 C inland from somewhat cooler west and south coasts.

SATURDAY will continue hazy and warm with a slight chance of isolated showers in west Munster by late in the day. Lows near 14 C and highs near 24 C.

SUNDAY will turn slightly cooler with mixture of cloud and sun, lows near 13 C and highs near 21 C, and a slight chance of isolated showers in the north.

MONDAY and TUESDAY of next week should see a return to hazy, warm conditions with highs near 24 C again.

The outlook for mid-week into the end of the month is somewhat uncertain but the warmer weather may hold on in parts of the south and east, with a gradual trend towards breezy and slightly more unsettled weather further north.

My local weather on Tuesday was sunny with increasing high cloud, and very warm, highs near 30 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 22 to 28 August, 2019

-- Temperatures will average 2 to 3 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will average about 50% of normal.
-- Sunshine will average near normal, varying from slightly below average in the west, to just a little above in the east.


FORECASTS

TODAY will remain rather cloudy except for some sunny breaks in the south by mid-day and afternoon. Some rather persistent light rain or drizzle will come and go in central and northern counties, only 2 or 3 mm accumulation (intermittent wiper conditions). This damp Atlantic flow while rather warm will be moist with mist or hill fog in places. Highs near 21 C except a little higher in parts of the inland south where the sun breaks through, possibly 24 there.

TONIGHT will be muggy and mild with fog and mist at times, but less of the light rain or drizzle especially over central counties, with lows around 12 to 14 C.

FRIDAY will bring some intervals of warm but hazy sunshine, still rather misty in areas near the south and west coasts with sea fog possibly drifting some distance inland at times. Highs 22 to 25 C.

SATURDAY will see the hazy and warm conditions persisting in the east and south, while west and north become overcast with occasional light rain moving inland at times from a rather persistent base near the outer west coast. Highs will range from 18 C west to 23 C east.

SUNDAY will bring a somewhat fresher westerly flow but later in the day it will begin to turn misty again in western and northern areas. Continued rather warm with highs 20 to 23 C.

MONDAY should hold on to the warm and basically dry weather with just a chance of rain in the northern coastal fringes, highs 21 to 25 C.

TUESDAY will continue warm in most areas with a slight cooling trend for the northwest as weak fronts begin to develop and move slowly southeast, highs for most 22 to 25 C but 17 to 20 C in the northwest.

The OUTLOOK, while somewhat uncertain, calls for a gradual cooling trend with occasional showers but also some brighter and fresher conditions with highs 18 to 21 C leading into the final weekend of the month (31 August into 1 September). Eventually this spell could turn quite cool for a day or two as winds turn more to a northerly direction by about Monday 2nd.

My local weather was sunny and hot for most of the day on Wednesday, highs near 33 C, with cloud spreading in by late afternoon and some sporadic light rain with little accumulation but strong southwest wind gusts at times reaching 80 km/hr, now it has become calm and is currently about 20 C and muggy.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 23 to 29 August, 2019

-- Temperatures will average 2 to 4 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will average about 25 to 50% of normal.
-- Sunshine will average near normal, varying from slightly below average in the west, to just a little above in the east.


FORECASTS

TODAY will feature some intervals of warm but hazy sunshine, still rather misty in areas near the south and west coasts with sea fog possibly drifting some distance inland at times. Highs 22 to 25 C except 18 to 21 near south coast.

TONIGHT will be partly cloudy to overcast, warm and muggy, with lows 14 to 17 C.

SATURDAY will see the hazy and warm conditions persisting in the east and south, while west and north become overcast with occasional light rain moving inland at times from a rather persistent base near the outer west coast. Highs will range from 18 C west to 23 C east. The rain will eventually move towards the east coast in the form of scattered light showers dissipating Saturday evening. The overnight hours will become clear with fog patches, with overnight lows to Sunday morning around 12 to 14 C.

SUNDAY will bring a somewhat fresher westerly flow but later in the day it will begin to turn misty again in western and northern areas. Continued rather warm with highs 20 to 23 C.

MONDAY should hold on to the warm and basically dry weather with just a chance of rain in the northern coastal fringes, highs 21 to 25 C.

TUESDAY will continue rather warm in most areas with a slight cooling trend for the northwest as weak fronts begin to develop and move slowly southeast, with some outbreaks of light rain spreading into Connacht and Ulster; highs for most 20 to 23 C but 16 to 19 C in the northwest.

WEDNESDAY will become partly cloudy with showers, highs near 19 C.

The further outlook is rather uncertain but looks fairly promising now with the cooler trend rather muted on latest guidance, possibly back to mostly sunny skies by Friday 30th and the weekend of 31st August into 1st of September, and highs in the low 20s.

My local weather on Thursday was sunny with a few cloudy intervals and quite warm at about 28 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 24 to 30 August, 2019

-- Temperatures will average 1.5 to 3.0 deg above normal, the warmer values in the southeast.
-- Rainfall will average near normal in the north and northwest, to only 50% in the southeast (and much of this will be towards end of the week).
-- Sunshine will average only 50% of normal in the west, to near normal values in the east.


FORECASTS

TODAY will be generally rather warm and humid with some hazy sunshine at times in the east and south, trending to mostly cloudy in west and north where some showers will develop, one or two with thunder this morning to mid-day. A few locations in west Munster and Connacht into west Ulster could see 5-10 mm but amounts will be slight elsewhere. Highs 20 to 24 C.

TONIGHT will be misty with some dense fog patches developing in light winds in the midlands and inland north. Lows 10 to 13 C.

SUNDAY will be somewhat cloudy to start, but the sun will break through at times by mid-day and afternoon, with isolated showers developing in parts of Connacht and the west to north midlands. Rather warm and humid with highs 20 to 23 C.

MONDAY will continue warm with variable amounts of cloud, some sunny breaks mostly in Leinster and east Ulster, and outbreaks of light rain by afternoon in parts of the west, lows near 14 C and highs near 22 C east, 18 C west.

TUESDAY will see sporadic outbreaks of light rain spreading further east gradually, with a slight fall in temperatures to the 17 to 21 C range.

WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY will continue partly to mostly cloudy with occasional light rain in places, and highs 16 to 20 C.

FRIDAY currently appears more likely to bring a heavier rainfall especially in parts of the west, where 10-20 mm could fall, and highs around 17 C.

The further outlook calls for gradual improvements over the weekend of 31 August into 1st of September with some sunshine each day and highs 19 to 22 C, then another brief warm spell around 2nd and 3rd of September, followed by cloud and rain.

My local weather on Friday was overcast with occasional showers by afternoon, highs near 20 C.

-- Temperatures will average 2 to 3 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will average 50 to 80 per cent of normal, heavier in the north and west.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be hazy and warm with a few sunny intervals, and isolated brief showers most likely in the north midlands. Highs 21 to 24 C.

TONIGHT will be partly cloudy, misty with fog patches developing, and lows of 12 to 15 C.

MONDAY will be cloudy with a few sunny breaks, continuing rather warm, with outbreaks of light rain developing in the west and north. Highs 19 to 23 C.

TUESDAY will bring outbreaks of light rain, heavier amounts in west and north (5 to 10 mm), and a slight fall in temperatures to 18-20 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 26 August to 1 September, 2019

-- Temperatures will average 1 to 2 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will average 50 to 80 per cent of normal, heavier in the north and west.
-- Sunshine will average near normal values, although rather cloudy in parts of the west.


FORECASTS

TODAY will be hazy and warm with sunny intervals, and isolated brief showers most likely in the west, moving later towards the north midlands. Highs 21 to 24 C.

TONIGHT will become overcast with outbreaks of light rain still mainly confined to the west, and lows 11 to 14 C.

TUESDAY will bring outbreaks of light rain, heavier amounts in west and north (5 to 10 mm), and a slight fall in temperatures to 18-20 C.

WEDNESDAY will start off with some rain in parts of the south and east, followed by partial clearing and fresher conditions, highs 17-19 C.

THURSDAY will be partly cloudy with isolated showers and highs 17 to 19 C.

FRIDAY will see a band of rain crossing the country with 10-15 mm amounts in parts of the west and north, closer to 5 mm east and south. Highs 16 to 18 C.

The OUTLOOK for weekend of 31 Aug into 1st September calls for cool and somewhat unsettled weather, a slight improvement by Monday 2nd but after that continued unsettled with near normal temperatures. The pattern could improve at some point back towards warm and more settled conditions as high pressure will not be all that far to the west of Ireland at times, so slight changes in model guidance may create a change in the outlook rather easily.

My local weather was partly cloudy all day, with a gusty northerly breeze at times, and therefore rather cool at about 17 C. We were briefly up around 1600 meters at mid-afternoon and it felt really autumnal there, probably around 12 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 27 August to 2 September, 2019

-- Temperatures will average near normal values, but the trend will be towards cooler weather.
-- Rainfall could approach normal values or even 25% above in the west, but will remain closer to half of normal in the east.
-- Sunshine will average only 50 to 75 per cent of normal values.


FORECASTS

TODAY will be mostly cloudy, although a few brighter intervals are likely at first in the east. A slow-moving band of rain will bring 10 to 20 mm amounts to parts of the inland west, making only slow progress by afternoon, then reaching the east coast this evening. Highs will range from 17 to 19 C.

TONIGHT will see the rain slowly moving further east and generally diminishing as it goes, lows will be 12 to 15 C.

WEDNESDAY the rain will become showery before ending in the east, and there will be partial clearing from west to east during the day, but followed by further outbreaks of showers later. Highs 16 to 18 C.

THURSDAY will be overcast with occasional rain and some heavy showers at times, lows near 14 C and highs near 18 C.

FRIDAY will bring further rainfalls, 15 to 30 mm in total for some parts of the west in particular, and highs near 17 C.

SATURDAY will become partly cloudy, breezy and cool with passing showers and a few thunderstorms, highs near 17 C.

SUNDAY will be rather windy and cool with a few more showers, winds west to northwest 50 to 80 km/hr in exposed coastal areas, and highs 14 to 16 C.

MONDAY and TUESDAY (2-3 September) will have some sunny breaks followed by intervals of rain by later Tuesday, temperatures fairly close to average (18-20 C).

The further outlook is rather unsettled but temperatures should remain close to average for early September.

My local weather on Monday was mostly sunny and pleasantly warm at about 23 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 28 August to 3 September 2019

-- Temperatures will average about 1 deg below normal values.
-- Rainfall will average near normal, to 25% above normal in some western counties.
-- Sunshine will be 75 per cent of normal values.

FORECASTS

TODAY will have some sunny intervals at first, then scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will develop, more widespread in the western counties. Highs 17 to 21 C.

TONIGHT will become partly cloudy to clear at times, with lows 6 to 9 C.

THURSDAY will bring increasing cloud with outbreaks of rain spreading into western counties, highs 17 to 21 C.

FRIDAY will be a rather wet day for most with 10-20 mm rainfalls and highs near 16 C.

SATURDAY will be breezy with showers, rather cool, highs near 17 C.

SUNDAY will continue partly to mostly cloudy, breezy (winds northwest 40 to 60 km/hr) and cool with showers, highs near 16 C.

The outlook beyond the weekend is for gradual improvements and an interval of settled weather is likely to develop especially later next week with high pressure near Ireland.

My local weather on Tuesday was sunny and warmer with highs near 31 C. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Dorian threatens Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic and by about Monday could be approaching the southeast U.S. as a hurricane, with a possible east Florida landfall, or perhaps a coastal storm for the Carolinas. Tropical Storm Erin has formed east of the Carolinas and is expected to remain well out to sea without much further development.

-- Temperatures will average about 1 deg below normal.
-- Rainfall will average 25 to 50 per cent above normal in the west, to near normal in the east.
-- Sunshine will average 50 to 75 per cent of normal values.


FORECASTS

TODAY will be breezy, mostly cloudy with a few breaks in the east, and occasional light rain in parts of the west. Winds southwest 40 to 60 km/hr, highs 16 to 19 C, highest in the southeast.

TONIGHT will bring occasional rain in the west, overcast but mainly dry in the east, lows 12 to 14 C.

FRIDAY will be breezy with outbreaks of rain, turning heavy by late afternoon or evening. Highs 16 to 18 C. 15 to 30 mm will eventually fall. Winds southwest 40 to 60 km/hr. Some thundery bursts of heavy rain possible by Friday night.

SATURDAY will see the heavy showers moving east during the morning followed by breezy, partly cloudy conditions with more showers developing in a brisk westerly wind. Lows near 13 C and highs near 18 C.

SUNDAY will be breezy and cool with a few showers, lows near 10 C and highs near 16 C.

MONDAY will be partly cloudy with highs near 20 C.

TUESDAY will bring another outbreak of showers and highs near 19 C.

There will be a trend towards more settled weather by the end of next week.

My local weather on Wednesday was sunny and hot with highs near 34 C. Now-hurricane Dorian brushed past Puerto Rico to the north and appears to be tracking towards Florida with a major hurricane landfall possible around Sunday night or Monday most likely in east-central Florida.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 30 August to 5 September, 2019

-- Temperatures will average slightly below normal (between 1.0 and 0.1 deg below).
-- Rainfall will vary from 25% above normal in the west to 25% below normal in the east.
-- Sunshine will average 75% of normal to near normal in some parts of the south.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be mostly cloudy, rather warm and humid in the south and east, but somewhat cooler with occasional rain in the west and north. Highs 17 to 21 C. Moderate southwest winds 40 to 60 km/hr.

TONIGHT will bring heavier bursts of rain and perhaps a thunderstorm, 15 to 30 mm in total by morning. Lows 11 to 14 C. Some gusty winds may accompany a frontal passage around midnight.

SATURDAY will become partly cloudy and fresher with brisk westerly breezes and passing showers, possibly one or two with hail or thunder. Highs 17 to 20 C.

SUNDAY will be breezy and cool with a few showers, winds turning more west-northwest, lows near 10 C and highs near 16 C.

MONDAY will bring a few sunny intervals and only a few isolated showers, highs near 20 C.

TUESDAY will be cloudy with outbreaks of light rain, breezy, with highs near 19 C.

The outlook then calls for gradual improvements to a brief dry and settled spell near the end of the week.

My local weather remained very warm but with increasing high cloud and highs near 30 C. Meanwhile, Hurricane Dorian seems to be headed for the northern Bahamas by Sunday night and a landfall in east-central Florida perhaps as far south as Palm Beach, by Monday night into Tuesday. Monday is Labor Day, on the same day and date in 1935, the Florida Keys experienced the strongest hurricane to make a landfall in the United States (a record which still stands although Camille in 1969 was close). Dorian is expected to be about a strong cat-3 or even a cat-4 at landfall.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 31 August to 6 September, 2019

-- Temperatures will average slightly below normal (between 1.0 and 0.1 deg below).
-- Rainfall will vary from 50% to 75% of normal.
-- Sunshine will average 75% of normal to near normal in some parts of the south.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be partly cloudy and fresher with brisk westerly breezes settling into the 40 to 60 km/hr range after some stronger gusts this morning, and after some sunny intervals, a few passing showers, possibly one or two with hail or thunder. Highs 17 to 20 C.

TONIGHT will be partly cloudy, breezy and cool with passing showers, lows 8 to 10 C.

SUNDAY will be breezy and cool with a few showers, winds turning more west-northwest at 40 to 60 km/hr, with highs near 16 C.

MONDAY will bring a few sunny intervals and only a few isolated showers, highs near 20 C.

TUESDAY will be cloudy with a few outbreaks of light rain mostly confined to the north, breezy, with highs near 19 C.

WEDNESDAY will be partly cloudy, breezy and cool with highs near 17 C.

The outlook then calls for gradual improvements to a brief dry and settled spell near the end of the week. Although it won't be an extended dry spell, the general trend towards mid-September may be generally rather dry with only light rainfalls at times.

My local weather on Friday was overcast with occasional light rain, then clearing by evening. The high was around 25 C. Dorian has become a major hurricane, but there is a slight improvement in the scenario for Florida with models generally tracking the storm up the coast rather than making a complete run inland. Northern Bahamas are bracing for a damaging blow tomorrow.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 1 to 7 September

-- Temperatures will average slightly below normal by 0.5 to 1.0 deg.
-- Rainfall will average 25 to 50 per cent of normal, the south and east will be relatively dry.
-- Sunshine will begin to improve to near normal values and possibly 25% above in some parts of the east.


FORECASTS

TODAY will be breezy, rather cool and sunny at first in eastern counties, partly cloudy further west with outbreaks of showers becoming more widespread with the odd heavy one producing hail or thunder by afternoon. Winds west to northwest 50 to 70 km/hr at times. Highs 15 to 18 C with higher values near south coast.

TONIGHT will bring some clear intervals and lows around 7 to 10 C.

MONDAY will be partly cloudy with isolated showers, more likely in west and north. Highs 18 to 20 C.

TUESDAY will be mostly cloudy with showers, lows near 10 C and highs near 19 C.

WEDNESDAY will be brisk and cool with passing showers, gusty northwest winds and lows near 7 C with highs only 14 to 17 C.

THURSDAY will be partly cloudy, dry in the south, occasional passing showers in the north, and a bit warmer at 18 to 20 C.

The outlook calls for generally settled weather with at least normal temperatures around end of the week into the following weekend. Beyond that, a rather mobile westerly flow seems likely but details are sketchy at this point.

My local weather on Saturday was cloudy with a few sunny breaks, and highs near 24 C. The latest guidance on Dorian suggests that it will continue to move towards the northern Bahamas with possibly major damage for Abaco and Grand Bahamas islands, then may slowly weaken and turn northwest, approaching some part of the Florida coast or staying just offshore, before recurving towards Cape Hatteras by mid-week. No U.S. mainland landfall can be considered either certain or ruled out at this point.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 2 to 8 September 2019

-- Temperatures will average near normal values.
-- Rainfall will also be close to average in the west and north, to perhaps 50% in parts of the east and south.
-- Sunshine will range from 75% of normal in the west and north to near normal values in the east and south.


FORECASTS

TODAY will be breezy, mostly cloudy and a few outbreaks of light rain will occur mostly in northern counties. Highs 17 to 20 C.

TONIGHT will be partly to mostly cloudy with a few light showers and lows near 12 C.

TUESDAY will be partly cloudy, breezy and a bit warmer with further showers in parts of the north mostly, but occasionally spreading into central counties also. Highs 18 to 22 C.

WEDNESDAY will be brisk and cool with strong northwest to north winds especially near exposed coasts around Ulster and north Connacht. Lows near 7 C and highs 14 to 17 C, a few passing showers in all areas, with hail over parts of the north.

THURSDAY will become more settled and warmer again with some sunny breaks and highs closer to 20 C.

FRIDAY will be cloudy with outbreaks of light rain in the north, highs near 19 C.

The weather will remain somewhat unsettled although not far from average in most regards for the second week of September.

My local weather on Sunday was sunny with afternoon cloudy intervals, and warm with highs near 25 C. Dorian meanwhile remains a powerful hurricane moving very slowly west across the northern Bahamas, and models continue to suggest it will curve to the north soon, but Florida residents are quite nervous watching this powerful storm inching closer to their east coast. Any severe impacts are more likely to be further north than Cape Canaveral due to the slowly converging track but even there it could recurve just in time to reduce the impacts to more moderate, and the same scenario would then play out further north around mid week. This storm could also make a landfall in eastern New England or eastern Canada by Friday or the weekend.

TODAY will be mostly cloudy with a few breaks in the south and east, occasional light rain or drizzle at times in north and west, and eventually spreading to other areas. Moderate westerly breezes, rather humid with highs 18 to 20 C.

TONIGHT will be overcast with light rain at times, lows near 12 C.

WEDNESDAY will become partly cloudy, breezy and cool, with some strong northwest gusts at times near exposed Atlantic coasts (in general winds 50-70 km/hr). Highs 13 to 16 C, a few showers with hail possible.

THURSDAY will be mostly dry, although rather cloudy, with some outbreaks of light rain or drizzle further north. Highs 18 to 20 C.

FRIDAY and next WEEKEND will be generally settled with near normal temperatures, some sun each day and just a few isolated showers, with highs near 20 C.

My local weather on Monday was sunny and pleasant with highs near 24 C. Dorian as expected has moved very little in the past day and is just edging northwest away from Grand Bahama Island, however, it has weakened by at least two categories over the day and may soon be only a cat-2 hurricane moving slowly north about 50-100 miles east of the Florida coast. Impacts on Florida and the southeastern U.S. coasts will be moderate and mostly confined to rising water levels, with moderate northerly wind gusts at times, if the forecast scenario plays out. A more damaging storm risk may actually exist at the end of the week in eastern Nova Scotia if and when the remnant low moves inland there.
