Here is the Irish Mean Temperatures (IMT) for January 1995-December 2002 in comparison with their 1981-2010 IMT average.



Information gathered from Met Éireann for the Republic of Ireland and the Met Office for Northern Ireland.

Here is the Irish Mean Temperatures (IMT) for January 1987-December 1994 in comparison with their 1981-2010 IMT average. It's getting harder and harder to make these as I go back further as you might have guessed 'cause I haven't posted here since last Saturday. It's getting harder due to the information being more scarce as you go back further.

Hi I wonder if it's ok to butt in and ask a question?
I'm trying to find out what the weather was like in Ireland for Easter 1984?
It was April 22.
Thank you.

Hey it's perfectly fine. Don't be afraid to ask questions people!

A ridge of high pressure first centred to the west of Scotland and later drifting over the North Sea dominated our weather from the 22nd to the end of the month. As a result, an easterly airflow developed during this fine spell which was unusually warm for April. Glenties, Co. Donegal recorded a mean daily maximum temperature of 20.4c from the 21st-30th! Many other places recorded mean daily maximum temperatures between 17-19c during the same period, one of the warmest periods on record for April. Thursday, April 26th 1984 currently holds the April maximum temperature record for Ireland of 25.8c at Glenties. Easter Sunday itself was just the start of the very warm spell so temperatures weren't remarkably high but it was still a very warm Easter with maximum temperatures between 16-21c. Sunshine was very abundant with many, many places recording between 10-13 hours of sunshine. It was what I like to call the Perfect Easter.

With a provisional IMT of 8.6c (this is of subject to change), April 2017 was +0.1c above the average.

Correction, the IMT for April 2017 was actually 8.8c (+0.3c above the average).

You guys might have been saying, what have I been doing because I have not posted in this thread for a week and 2 days. Well I've been yet again tediously calculating the IMT for more months and now all the way back to 1975! I thought why not have the IMT like the CET where you'd have a table like this one in the image where you can see all the IMTs clearly for every year and so I did. This image is the IMT for every month from January 1975-April 2017. I will continue to calculating the IMT for months before. Hope this is of use to anybody or at least enjoyable to look at 'cause it was very difficult to make.

Just a fascinating fact I thought I'd share here:

The highest temperature of a month has been recorded in Ireland than the UK in only the following months in recorded history: June 1887, June 1940, October 1974, April 1975, December 2013 & June 2014. The only YEAR where Ireland had a higher temperature than the UK was 1887.

EDIT: This list is NOT complete so feel free to share months that Ireland had a higher maximum temperature than the UK in. And remember to give proof when you do so please.

Thanks to for contribution: axe2grind

There'll be plenty of winter months with higher max in Ireland. Dec 2013 an example.
16.6 in UK
http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climate/.../2013/december
16.8 in Ireland

Well thanks for that. I really should have stated that the list I just named needs to be completed. Edited now with that and December 2013. Again thank you.

Table of Irish stations' statistics will be posted soon for the period May 2017 1st-16th BUT the bad news is that after this, I don't think I'll be able to do this again due to timing issues .

EDIT: Looks like I'm getting pushed back even more. Very sorry guys that this has turned out to be a disaster. I am annoyed as much as you who have expecting this table since I announced it.

Some Irish stations' mean temperatures for months in their records can be found here:

https://data.giss.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/g...world_map.y=97

These have been controversial to some people BUT in my opinion, they're ok. They also make my IMT calculating that bit easier compared to using Met Éireann's Historical Data.
