the dry and settled spell from next weekend is looking like a mixed bag for us with low pressure from the north-west spoiling things at times, particularly in the west.
The East and South may get a dry, warm day on the 23rd of August, but low pressure already in place near the north-west keeping things cooler and more unsettled there.
Saturday 24th see's heights focused more towards the south-east of England as low pressure creeps in from the north-west. The east could still escape with a warm, dry day.
Sunday 25th see's low pressure slip down to our south-west, perhaps a warm or very warm and dry day in the east and possibly the north. Uppers by this stage very warm over Leinster
Monday 26th see's warm or hot air dragged up from France and central Europe. The low pressure off Kerry could still bring showers over the west and south-west. Perhaps some potential for thunder?
The uppers look high over Ireland Monday 26th-Tuesday 27th with a tongue of hot air moving north-westwards across Ireland. Looks similar to the heatwave failure in June, however uppers not quite as high as that event.
If this happens, and everything plays in our favour, then high 20's are a possibility in some parts.
Wednesday 28th see's the low off the south-west becoming more of an influence in the west, with the high uppers being squeezed out. Still very warm across the east and north. Thursday 29th see's the low crossing Ireland introducing cooler and unsettled conditions.
This upcoming warm spell is still very knife edge for my liking, this could easily go pear shaped for us with low pressures never far away from our western shore at any stage. Hopefully the next few days will continue to see this in warm spell in place with the low's keeping off shore to allow maybe the final spell of summer before Autumn.
