Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 22 to 28 July

-- Temperatures will average 2 to 4 deg above normal, but the first three days will produce most of the warmth, it will be near normal after mid-week.
-- Rainfall will average 25 to 50 per cent above normal, much of this will fall on Thursday.
-- Sunshine will average 60 to 80 per cent of normal values, possibly near normal in parts of the southeast, cloudier in Connacht and Ulster.


FORECASTS

TODAY will be very warm and humid with blustery south to southwest winds 50 to 80 km/hr near some coasts, 30 to 50 km/hr inland. Highs will reach 24 or 25 C away from south and west coasts which will have some persistent low cloud and perhaps drizzle, temperatures about 19 or 20 C.

TONIGHT will be muggy and partly cloudy with lows only falling to 17 C on average.

TUESDAY will be partly cloudy, very warm and humid with highs 24 or 25 C, except closer to 20 C near south coast. Some showers may brush parts of the west coast and start to move further inland by evening.

WEDNESDAY will see some morning showers followed by sunny intervals, still quite warm with lows near 16 C and highs of about 22 or 23 C, winds not quite as blustery but moderate south to southwest at times. Rainfalls of about 5 mm likely.

THURSDAY will see frequent showers, some heavy with thunder possible, and 20-40 mm rainfalls, temperatures steady 17 to 19 C.

FRIDAY will bring gradual clearing with rain tapering to showers in the north during the morning, then isolated scattered showers later on in more of a westerly wind 40 to 60 km/hr, lows near 12 C and highs near 17 C.

SATURDAY will be partly cloudy with isolated showers and highs near 19 C.

SUNDAY and MONDAY will continue the trend of near normal temperatures and isolated showers.

My local weather was sunny start to finish with highs near 28 C. Severe heat and humidity (DC was 37 C, felt like 45 C, NYC and BOS about the same) continued in the eastern U.S. followed by widespread gusty thunderstorms, but a more organized area of heavy rainfall will move from current location in Missouri towards the Ohio valley and then the mid-Atlantic states in the next two days, bringing some flash flooding and ending the heat wave for the time being.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 23 to 29 July, 2019

-- Temperatures will average 1.5 to 3.5 deg above normal, with a gradual cooling trend from very warm at first to near normal by end.
-- Rainfall will average near normal, from 50% above in some parts of west, to about half normal values on the east coast.
-- Sunshine will average 50 to 75 per cent of normal.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be very warm and humid with some hazy sunshine at times, more frequent cloud cover near south and west coasts, and highs generally around 25 C except closer to 20 near south coast, 22 west coast. Winds southerly 40 to 60 km/hr, backing to southeast by late in the day.

TONIGHT will see a band of showers making some progress east from the Atlantic coastal counties to at least central Ulster and the midlands, but amounts rather light in general. Very warm and muggy for most with lows around 17 C.

WEDNESDAY will bring some sunny breaks after the remnants of overnight showers move east, and it will continue quite warm at about 23 or 24 C.

THURSDAY will be wet in some western counties with 15-30 mm rainfall expected, some thundery showers embedded. This band of rain may stall before reaching the east coast, or at least make such slow progress as to delay its arrival until evening. Thus temperatures will vary from about 17 C in the west to 22 C in the east after another quite warm and muggy night.

FRIDAY will see the front speeding up but fragmenting to showers, followed by partial clearing and highs near 19 C.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK calls for near normal temperatures and scattered showers, highs near 20 C.

My local weather on Monday was partly cloudy and rather warm (25 C) with some weak shower and thunderstorm activity mostly aloft with the rain not reaching the ground very often. This is the opening stages of what looks like a severe storm outbreak mostly north of here and spreading east, but we may get into the action at times on Tuesday. Heat was replaced by heavy rainfalls in many parts of the eastern U.S. on Monday.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 24 to 30 July, 2019

-- Temperatures will average about 2 degrees above normal, but close to normal after the first two days which will continue rather warm.
-- Rainfall will average near normal in many areas, but possibly as low as 50% of normal in coastal Leinster.
-- Sunshine will average 60 to 80 per cent of normal values.

FORECASTS

TODAY will become sunny with cloudy intervals, with any isolated showers very brief, most places staying dry. Warm with highs near 23 C.

TONIGHT will become cloudy again with rain slowly pushing inland from the western coasts, about 5 mm by morning in those counties bordering the Atlantic, but largely dry further east, lows near 15 C.

THURSDAY will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain, slowly spreading east although possibly only scattered showers in Leinster and parts of Ulster. Amounts will be close to 10 mm in Kerry, some parts of Galway and Mayo, but less than that in central counties. Still rather warm with highs close to 20 C.

FRIDAY will become fresher with westerly winds of 40 to 60 km/hr at times, passing showers and chance of an isolated thunderstorm. Lows will be 10 to 13 C and highs 17 to 19 C.

SATURDAY will also be partly cloudy with showers and moderate westerly winds at times, lows near 9 C and highs near 17 C.

SUNDAY will become partly sunny and showers will be quite isolated, highs near 20 C.

MONDAY to WEDNESDAY of next week, a rather weak disturbance will approach with scattered showers, and this will persist for several days as low pressure loops around off the west coast, but with that, some dry intervals and sunny breaks too. Highs generally 19 to 22 C.

My local weather on Tuesday was sunny and hot with a high close to 30 C. Thunderstorms have developed just to our south and we're getting frequent thunder and flashes of lightning but no rain yet.

Forecasts for Ireland


TRENDS for the week of 25 to 31 July, 2019

-- Temperatures will average about 0.5 degrees above normal.
-- Rainfall will average near normal in many areas, but possibly as low as 50% of normal in coastal Leinster and east Ulster.
-- Sunshine will average 60 to 80 per cent of normal values.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain, slowly spreading east although only scattered showers will reach Leinster and parts of Ulster by afternoon. Further amounts will be 5 to 10 mm in Kerry, some parts of Galway and Mayo, but less than that in central counties. Still rather warm with highs close to 20 C and possibly 23 to 25 C in Leinster.

TONIGHT will remain cloudy with some rain at times, lows near 12 C.

FRIDAY will become fresher with westerly winds of 40 to 60 km/hr at times, passing showers and chance of an isolated thunderstorm. Highs will range from 17 to 21 C.

SATURDAY will also be partly cloudy with showers and moderate westerly winds at times, lows near 9 C and highs near 17 C.

SUNDAY will become partly sunny and showers will be quite isolated, highs near 20 C.

MONDAY will bring outbreaks of rain with highs near 19 C.

The outlook for the rest of the week is rather unsettled with temperatures close to seasonal averages.

My local weather started off with a heavy thunderstorm, then it cleared up before mid-day and was quite a bit cooler than the previous days with a high of about 18 C. Severe storms moved east into Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 26 July to 1 August 2019

-- Temperatures will average near normal to perhaps 1.0 deg above normal in the north.
-- Rainfall will average 50 to 75 per cent of normal.
-- Sunshine will average near normal and may be as much as 25% above normal in the north.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be partly cloudy with isolated showers, and a slight risk of a thunderstorm in west central counties. Highs 18 to 22 C, warmer in the east and inland south.

TONIGHT will be clear at times with cooler temperatures, lows 8 to 11 C.

SATURDAY will be partly cloudy with some fairly long sunny intervals, only a few isolated showers, highs near 20 C.

SUNDAY will also be a mixture of cloud and sunshine with slight risk of showers, but watching a more active system that could back into east Ulster and north Leinster from Britain where rain will be fairly heavy in places. This system may or may not spread some rain into the northeast but more likely just cloud. Highs 18 to 20 C.

MONDAY is now looking fairly settled as low pressure formerly shown in the vicinity of west Munster is being held on a more southerly track by the after-effects of the system over Britain on Sunday. So it may now be a generally dry day with highs near 20 C, the rain will go towards northwest France and southwest England instead.

TUESDAY will see variable cloud and isolated showers, highs near 22 C.

OUTLOOK beyond that is rather bland with continued near normal temperatures and mixtures of cloud and sun each day, just a few scattered showers but nothing too prolonged or widespread shown on current guidance.

Just a word about the incredible heat in parts of England and France yesterday, that will be ending today if you have any travel plans and conditions will be much more temperate by the weekend.

My local weather on Thursday was sunny but pleasantly cool with highs about 21 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



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

-- Temperatures will average just slightly above normal, 0.5 to 1.5 deg in most areas, which suggests daytime readings in the low 20s.
-- Rainfall will average just about normal although a fair amount of that is timed for the last day of the interval, so rather dry until then.
-- Sunshine will average near normal to 25% above normal values. The northwest will do relatively well being furthest from projected tracks of any cloud systems.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be sunny with afternoon cloudy intervals, and isolated showers mostly over west-central counties. Highs 20 to 23 C.

TONIGHT will have clear intervals except for widespread cloud in east Ulster and north Leinster. Lows 7 to 10 C.

SUNDAY will remain cloudy in east Ulster and north Leinster, with small amounts of rain likely towards Antrim, but most other parts of Ireland will be partly cloudy to sunny at times, with only a few isolated brief showers. Highs 20 to 23 C.

MONDAY will see patchy cloud spreading in as a fairly vigorous low (for midsummer at least) tracks south of Munster towards southwest England. Some rain may develop in the south towards late afternoon or evening. Lows near 8 C and highs near 21 C.

TUESDAY could produce some light rain at times especially in Leinster and east Munster, with a better chance of sunshine in Connacht and Ulster. Highs near 19 C.

WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY look dry and reasonably warm with highs 21 to 24 C.

FRIDAY could produce some rain from the guidance this far in advance, and highs near 19 C.

The pattern in August appears rather unsettled with near normal temperatures. I have somewhat low confidence in the guidance past midweek however.

My local weather on Friday stayed sunny but turned quite hot with the high 32 C. Looks as though we are finally getting into the normal hot, dry interval that occurs most years here in late July and most of August, sometimes longer than that.

Sunday, 28 July, 2019

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 28 July to 3 August, 2019

-- Temperatures will average near normal to about 1 deg above normal values.
-- Rainfall will be somewhat below average except in east Ulster which will get significant amounts today, so overall about 50% above normal.
-- Sunshine will average as much as 25% above normal in western counties, to near normal further east, although probably below average for east Ulster.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be rather cloudy in general with sunny intervals most likely near south coast and parts of the midlands. It will remain overcast in Ulster, north Leinster and parts of Connacht with rain spreading slowly west across Ulster. Some heavy amounts are possible around Belfast and county Antrim. Elsewhere, isolated showers are possible within cloud bands further south, but many places will remain dry. Highs 18 to 23 C depending on sunshine, although 15 to 17 C in the persistent rain further north.

TONIGHT will maintain this pattern with some clear intervals in the south but persistent cloud and some light rain further north. Lows will be around 10 to 12 C.

MONDAY will bring variable cloud cover and showers in some parts, winds gradually increasing from east to northeast in parts of the south closer to a vigorous offshore low heading for the Channel. Further north, the rain in Ulster will fragment to showers, but this will merge with a wider area of unsettled weather with showers over about half the country by afternoon in hit or miss showers. Highs 18 to 21 C.

TUESDAY will be rather cloudy with some sunny breaks in western counties, and showers with risk of a thunderstorm in eastern counties. It will be somewhat cooler in the east. Highs will range from 21 C in western counties to 17 C in the east.

WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY have a rather uncertain outlook at present, as the deep low passing southern and then eastern counties may stall over the North Sea or eastern Britain for a time, and allow some cloud and shower bands to spread back west. However this is not certain and there could be enough influence from high pressure west of Ireland to keep at least western counties dry with some sunny intervals. Temperatures are likely to peak around 20 C but could be a bit warmer than that if sunshine prevails.

The outlook beyond that is increasingly uncertain but it appears likely to remain close to normal in temperatures with weak disturbances passing often enough to add a risk of showers most days.

My local weather on Saturday was partly cloudy and rather breezy with highs near 28 C.

Monday, 29 July, 2019

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 29 July to 4 August, 2019

-- Temperatures will average near normal values, within 0.5 deg either side.
-- Rainfall will vary from 75% of normal in the northwest to 125% of normal in the southeast.
-- Sunshine will be fairly close to average values although rather cloudy for the first two days.

FORECASTS

TODAY will have some sunny intervals this morning despite rather widespread cloud, as the persistent rain in north Ulster continues to weaken. Isolated showers are possible further south, but it will remain generally dry until late afternoon when some rain moves in from the south coast, associated with unusually deep low pressure over the Bay of Biscay. Winds will pick up gradually from the northeast in Munster and south Leinster, at least in exposed coastal locations. Highs 17 to 21 C.

TONIGHT the rain will spread further north, although rather showery with slight chance of thunderstorms embedded. Parts of the west and north will remain dry but cloudy. Lows 10 to 13 C. Rainfalls 5-10 mm inland southeast as the low tracks towards Cornwall bringing strong wind gusts to parts of northwest France and southwest England late tonight.

TUESDAY will continue showery in Leinster and east Ulster, possibly parts of Munster and Connacht adjacent to those regions also. There is a better chance of sunny intervals near the western coasts. Moderate northerly winds will develop as the low tracks through England where some locally heavy rains may develop. In eastern Ireland 15 to 25 mm rain could fall during the day. It will be rather cool as a result of the cloud and rain, highs near 16 C east, but closer to 21 C near the west coast and in parts of Ulster.

WEDNESDAY will probably see the effects of the low confined to Britain but some spillover into eastern counties is possible at times. Otherwise most places should have a dry day with a mixture of cloud and sunshine, highs near 21 C.

THURSDAY will be partly cloudy with morning lows 5 to 8 C in the inland west, 8 to 11 C in other locations, and highs 20 to 23 C.

The outlook beyond that is for rather bland weather to continue with temperatures quite close to average, possibly dropping down a few degrees by middle of the following week, then returning to normal values after that. At the moment the guidance is generally rather dry for Ireland but as confidence is rather low in the solutions, this is far from guaranteed at this point.

My local weather on Sunday was sunny and warm with highs near 27 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



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

-- Temperatures will average near normal to perhaps 1 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will average 50% of normal in west, to 125% in parts of Leinster, although after today generally about 50% in all areas.
-- Sunshine will average near normal values to 25% above normal.


FORECASTS

TODAY will bring widespread showers with some locally heavy and possibly thundery, 5 to 15 mm likely. A few parts of the northwest coast may escape with partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the range of 17 to 19 C.

TONIGHT will see the showers continuing but becoming mostly confined to Leinster and east Ulster, lows near 12 C.

WEDNESDAY will become partly cloudy with longer sunny intervals in the west, and just isolated showers except in a few parts of east Ulster and coastal Leinster. Highs 18 to 22 C warmer in the west.

THURSDAY will be partly cloudy with decent sunny intervals for most, lows near 8 C and highs near 23 C.

FRIDAY will be sunny with increasing cloud, isolated showers by evening in west. Lows near 8 C and highs near 23 C.

SATURDAY will bring showers (about 5 mm rain expected) and highs near 20 C.

SUNDAY will be partly cloudy with showers and highs near 19 C.

The outlook for the following week is for somewhat cooler weather especially mid-week as winds turn northerly for a spell, but it will then return to more average early August values towards the end of next week.

My local weather on Monday was sunny and hot with highs near 30 C.

The unusual low pressure area tracking towards south coast of England brought wind gusts as high as 100 km/hr to Brittany on Monday and there are widespread gusts to 70 km/hr in the Channel region now. The low is about to move inland near Dorset and will weaken steadily over land today.

Forecasts for Ireland



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

-- Temperatures will be near normal to 1.0 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will be fairly light in the east until near the end of the seven day interval, but will gradually surpass normal values in the west.
-- Sunshine will average near normal to 25% above normal.

FORECASTS

TODAY will be partly to mostly cloudy this morning, becoming more sunny by afternoon in the west at least. Isolated light showers will bring scattered trace to 2 mm amounts but quite a few places should be dry in general. Highs 17 to 20 C. Moderate northwest winds 30 to 50 km/hr.

TONIGHT will become clear with a few cloudy intervals, a good night for stargazing as we are at the new moon (so no light from the Moon to interfere). Have a look for Jupiter low in the south, very bright. Lows 8 to 12 C.

THURSDAY will be sunny with cloudy intervals and a little warmer, highs 20 to 23 C.

FRIDAY will have sunshine to start with increasing cloud, lows 8 to 11 C and highs 20 to 23 C.

SATURDAY will become rather unsettled with frequent showers in the west, mostly cloudy with more isolated showers in the east. Lows will be about 10 C and highs about 19 C.

SUNDAY will be cloudy with a few showers, and highs near 19 C.

MONDAY and TUESDAY could bring some rather heavy rain at times, stay tuned on the details but potential for 20-40 mm rainfalls especially in Munster and Connacht. Guidance remains rather unsettled through the first half of August, but temperatures should be generally near the August average.

My local weather has finally gone into a persistent hot, dry pattern which we expect here for a few weeks at least. High today was around 30 in the hills and 35 in valleys. It's a dry heat here though, very little humidity. A bit hazy due to wildfire smoke blowing in from west and southwest of here (mostly in Washington state).

-- Rainfall will be 50% above normal in the west, but near normal or possibly a bit below normal in the east.

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for week of 4 to 10 August, 2019

-- Temperatures will average near normal to about 1 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will average 25 to 50 per cent above normal.
-- Sunshine will average only 50 to 75 per cent of normal.


FORECASTS


TODAY will start out with some sunny intervals but cloud will be increasing from the west during the morning, leading to outbreaks of heavy thundery showers mainly west of the Shannon and in parts of west Munster, but eventually spreading somewhat further east. Some places could receive 15-25 mm of rain within a short period leading to some spot flooding. Highs will be 18 to 21 C.

TONIGHT will continue cloudy with showers, lows near 12 C.

MONDAY will have variable cloudiness and outbreaks of rain also with slight chance of thunder, highs 18 to 21 C.

TUESDAY will continue much the same with partly cloudy to overcast skies, showers and highs near 19 C.

WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY will be slightly cooler but still unsettled with showers mostly in the afternoon hours, highs near 17 C.

The outlook is somewhat uncertain as to timing but a heavy rainfall seems likely around Friday or Saturday, with unusually strong low pressure for this time of year tracking near the south coast by end of the week or start of the following weekend. This unsettled pattern may begin to improve past mid-August with faint signs that the Azores high is going to strengthen later in the month placing high pressure closer to western Europe.

My local weather on Saturday was sunny but hazy, and warm with highs near 27 C.

Monday, 5 August, 2019

Forecasts for Ireland



TRENDS for the week of 5 to 11 August, 2019

-- Temperatures will average 1 to 2 deg above normal, but mild nights will get most of that done, so daytime readings may be closer to average.
-- Rainfall will average 50 to 75 per cent above normal, with some rather heavy rainfalls expected later in the period.
-- Sunshine will average 50 to 75 per cent of normal values.


FORECASTS

TODAY will start out with some brighter intervals then showers will become more widespread from west coast into midlands and parts of the north. The showers may remain more widely separated for south and east even by this afternoon. Highs 18 to 22 C.

TONIGHT will become partly cloudy with showers ending, lows near 12 C.

TUESDAY will see a similar cycle of morning dry intervals and afternoon showers, highs near 21 C.

WEDNESDAY will be partly cloudy with a few showers and slightly cooler with lows near 10 C and highs near 19 C.

THURSDAY could have a brief dry interval with rain spreading north during the afternoon and evening, becoming heavy. Highs near 20 C.

FRIDAY will bring outbreaks of heavy and possibly thundery rain with warm, humid conditions and highs near 21 C.

SATURDAY is then expected to become rather windy with partly cloudy skies and passing showers, highs near 18 C.

SUNDAY will be cloudy with a few showers and highs near 18 C.

The outlook remains unsettled for the week following, then slight improvements later in August.

My local weather on Sunday was sunny and very warm with highs near 30 C.
