Hopefully lengthy dry spells at some point during spring, we deserve it after the February we just had!

Wouldn’t mind a bitter easterly before St Patrick’s Day. But the chances of that are slim to none so I’d be happy with a dry and warming trend.

A number of years back (2012?) we got very close to 20c in late March.

A good dry spell is due.

Indeed. That spring will always be remembered fondly. However we got a horrific summer to follow so be warned just because you get a warm spring does not guarantee a warm sunny summer!

That is true. Any time we get a good week/fortnight in Mar/Apr you tend to get a very poor summer.

Nice enough between the showers today but much like February these incessant showers just won't f*** off so can't do anything useful outdoors yet again.

A repeat of Spring 2011 would do me nicely with two full months dominated by high pressure

It's just as well these showers are short lived because it's handkerchief sized flakes that are falling.

Yep, I remember it well 20 degrees and sitting outside for lunch at work, turned out to be the nicest day of the year. Terrible summer.

Sunny and crisp in Dublin 5 with frost. I'm not even exaggerating when I say it's frostier than any day since November.
