TRENDS for the week of 27 July to 2 August
-- Temperatures will be near normal values.
-- Rainfall will be normal to 25 per cent above in some parts.
-- Sunshine will be around 75 per cent of normal.
TODAY will see any remaining heavy rain moving east soon, watch for isolated road and stream flooding after 30-40 mm fell overnight in a few parts of the southeast. Variable cloud and further showers are likely with intervals of strong northwest winds moving from Atlantic coasts at present to central counties later this morning and Leinster by late morning to mid-day. Some gusts to 70 km/hr have occurred recently on the west coast and this may continue for a while before the fronts move through. Highs today around
17 or 18 C.
TONIGHT will be partly cloudy to overcast at times with isolated light showers, still rather breezy from the northwest and cool, lows near 9 C.
TUESDAY will have a lot of cloud for the morning then some improvements after mid-day as a ridge builds in from the west, with winds dropping off finally, and highs 17 to 19 C.
WEDNESDAY will start out warm and dry, but some rather sporadic rain will move into western counties after mid-afternoon, possibly not reaching eastern counties until well into the overnight hours. Lows near 10 C and highs near 20 C.
THURSDAY will be partly to mostly cloudy, humid, and rather warm with occasional light rain with moderate south to southwest winds, highs near 21 C.
FRIDAY will also be rather warm and humid with highs near 22 C.
The WEEKEND currently looks rather unsettled with pulses of heavy rain moving in from the southwest. Temperatures will be around normal, 18 to 21 C. The following week is looking similar to that.
My local weather on Sunday was sunny and hot with a high of 30 C, clear skies at present too.
