Forecast temperature anomaly for Saturday noon:




And then for 24hrs later:



A notable change, though out of the breeze and within the sun, should still feel pretty OK out during this cooler snap. Risk of ground frost is real though so gardeners beware.

after a dry start this weekend turns wet across the west and north. All areas at risk of some rain by Sunday evening.

Showers in the northern half of the country tomorrow Saturday, nothing too heavy.



light showers throughout Sunday but a more organised band of rain or showers by Sunday evening, the north-west will have the hightest rainfall totals up to 15mm in places.







Monday to Wednesday looks fairly dry and warm. Next Thursday is looking like a washout for many, hopefully this will downgraded alot over the coming few days.

A bit of rain may be no bad thing at this stage Gonzo. Like how long do we really want to go without rainfall? I don't think I could cope with quarantine AND water rationing!

Also, the dry spell has to end eventually. It's Ireland after all. So I'd prefer the good weather to end now and maybe come back again for a week or two in both June and July when the East coast might get some actual warmth. Anything in August would be a bonus.

I kinda feel like the longer this dry and settled period goes on the longer the bad weather will be when it eventually returns. Don't think I could cope with a bad June, July and August.

after a very chilly week just gone, things are set to warm up alot over the next 3 to 4 days. We will notice it slightly milder tomorrow but it's really Monday where we start to see Summer temperatures.

A nice day on Monday with decent sunny spells, especially in eastern and southern areas. Temperatures widely up to the high teens and may touch 20C in a few locations. Limerick/Shannon areas may see the highest temperatures.



Tuesday could be the best day of the week with high teens, possibly low 20's across many areas. Dublin to Shannon look like being the warmest spots, a few places could reach 21 or 22C.





We have one more fine and warm day on Wednesday, maybe a few degree's down on Tuesday, high teens touching 20C or 21C in most places.


Much cooler from Thursday and unsettled, but we'll cross that bridge closer to the time.

Jet firing up and the ECM showing a vigorous Lp moving close to us late Thurs /Early Fri bringing strong wind and rain, not as strong from the GFS but it did lean more towards the ECM on the latest run.

Fairly good agreement of some type of unsettled weather Thurs evening into Fri, in general showing very windy atm up along Atlantic coasts and more so in the W and NW but early days yet, could be a good shot of rainfall in the W/ NW.

ECM 12Z out soon

Thursday is now looking a much better day with the low taking longer to get here. Friday looks nasty if the ECM is to be believed, particulary for Mayo, Sligo and Donegal with some very strong winds, almost stormy looking conditions.



GFS keeps the low and very strong winds to the north-west of Scotland so it doesn't look quite as bad.



However it does look like next weekend is going to be a cool and unsettled one.

Yeah looks very windy if not a bit stormy on the latest ECM 12Z, showing very strong winds for the time of the year but long way off and will take until around Tues or Weds to have a more accurate picture. Quite wet looking but that will be a relief for the growth .

Deeper on this run. Left exit from the Jet.

The forecast on RTE1 after the news mentioned next Friday's possibly very windy conditions and it could also be accompanied by alot of rain.

The ECM is currently going for the windiest scenario with winds up to 120km/h in western and north-western areas. I doubt winds will be this severe in reality.



GFS has the strongest of the winds well out to our west and north but still a windy picture on both Friday and Saturday.





Icon going for a fairly windy Friday as well, close to 100km/h in places.


Next Friday and the weekend will certainly take some getting used to, could be a shock to the system with some fairly wild and wet conditions. Plenty of rain as well over the country throughout the weekend going by current models.

Models in fairly good agreement at this stage of a deepening LP moving up off the W coast early Fri am/ afternoon. ECM deepening to 970 hPa and GFS to 968 hPa. Looks very windy at this stage for the time of year but still a bit out before we know for sure.

ECM 12Z showing widespread gusting 80 to 90 km/h across the country during Friday ( less so in the SE ) and showing gusting up to 100 km/h in parts of the Northern half of the country during the afternoon.

Gusting 100 to 110 up along coastal counties in the W and NW. Bit to go yet for adjustments.

Of the most reliable ECM looking about the strongest at the moment.

Heavy frontal rain going through Thurs night into Fri morning, winds initially from the SSE and later veering to the SW, showers and some longer spells of rain to follow on Fri, some possibly thundery I reckon.

Very strong Jet.
