The following week up to Easter is looking quite mild and unsettled. Temperatures could get to the high teens at times if we get lucky with some sunshine. Some nice warm southerly winds.





high pressure close to us during mid week, but unsettled conditions spreading from the west:





A few places could see 17 or 18C next week.

There will be rain or showers at times, but nothing too wet. Temperatures really lifting up from this weekend onwards.

Great to see the temperatures picking up . Tomorrow looks decent in places getting up to 15 or 16C especially in the midlands, will be watching for a fohn effect with possibly higher temperatures locally helped along by the blustery S / SE wind

Charts still showing next Weds and Thurs getting the best temperatures of 16 to 18C especially Thurs, Fri not bad also.

Tomorrow wettest in Southern counties but looking like not much after that.

Will we get up to 19 or 20 C on Thurs ? Looks like it could become wet later. Humid.

Weds looking good for 18C in parts.

if luck is on our side and if the bands of rain stay out to the west a bit more at the end of the week, it's possible that 20C could be achieved in the Phoenix Park or Oak Park on Thursday if we can get some decent spells of sunshine and light winds.

Looks to be a cracking week to come across much of England with low 20's at times there. It's going to be tough to keep the lockdown going with this sort of weather over the next 4 or 5 days.

after a few really warm and sunny days it has felt more like mid July than early April. It turns cooler from Saturday, but Saturday itself still mild for the time of year.



Sunday is going to be a shock to the system for many with temperature plunging back into single digits, up to 10C cooler than tomorrows values, with many areas struggling to get much past 8C.



Temperatures stage a slight recovery to normal values on Easter Monday:


A frost for many on Monday night:

Is Sunday looking like a wash out for the midlands?

Sunday is looking like a write-off across the country including the midlands, cold and wet like a wet December's day.

Hp never far away over the coming week, quite weather coming week, little rainfall. Temps recovering slowly from Monday after the drop on Sunday which looks best in the SW and each day after getting up to the mid teens in places and possibly higher around Thurs. Cool calm nights under clear skies with a touch of frost possible in places where there is enough clear skies.

Lp waiting in the wings to bring some slow moving rain bands tomorrow under a cooler air mass, S and SE counties look to get the heaviest rain as the LP pirouettes as it moves slowly S

Will be a big let down after today but Hp building in again as the LP clears on Monday, temps not bad Monday in the SW but low enough elsewhere.

NASA Sat Pic earlier today.

Decent temperatures away from Eastern coasts for much of the week coming, onshore wind keeping temperatures lower in the East, getting warmer towards Thurs to the high teens. Rainfall amounts very little to none.

Losing the fine weather into next week,becoming cooler and LP looks to arrive around Tues in from the W probably sending in frontal bands and introducing a more unstable atmosphere, potential for thunderstorms Tues or more so Weds perhaps. Windier than of late along the coasts but nothing out of the ordinary showing up at this stage.

The models have eased off on rainfall totals up to Weds. Looks like the LP approaching Tuesday keeping well offshore and it's associated fronts making their approach later Tues early Weds. Winds not as prominent on the latest runs also, probably breezy at best Weds along the coasts at this stage. Possibly a chance of thunderstorms Weds and Thurs.

Gradients tightening as one of the low centers deepens as it moves up off the SW and W coasts bringing some strong winds running along the coasts for a time giving a small craft warning for all coasts of force 6 or higher. Later Weds night / Thurs morning another area of Lp bringing strong winds near the SE coast.

Will feel windier than normal as it has been so calm of late.









Would be very hard to predict anywhere near exact rainfalls but as there are a few different centers of Lp within the system pirouetting around near and in over Ireland there is potential for some big totals in places be it from frontal rain or convection with the possibility of some localized flooding I reckon given how dry and hard the soil is atm.

Charts showing some areas getting 30 or 40 mm up to Thurs night.

A cold plunge will arrive from Sunday afternoon with an impressive 10C drop in upper air temperatures over a very short period of time.

Day time temperatures will struggle in the high single digits/low teens for Sunday evening and into Monday and Tuesday.

Frost is possible on Sunday night:



Night time temperatures will be very chilly on Monday night, sub-zero across most of the country and a hard frost in many places. Very unusual to get a hard frost in the middle of May.



another frost on Tuesday night, temperatures close of freezing across the country.



still a cold night on Wednesday, but temperatures starting to recover after this.


Sunday night to Tuesday night will certainly be ones to watch for gardeners, growers and farmers, very unusual to get several nights of frost this late in the year.
