Sun, Mon and Tues holding the temperatures well, Weds looks cooler away from the S coasts on the latest run.

Plenty of rainfall in the W, NW and high ground in the SW over the Weekend into Mon.

Sunday /Monday coming into view now into the more reliable timeframe and looking very cold from later Sunday. Looking across the models and they would in general appear to beef up the wintry precipitation levels. Early days yet but not only have they held on to the projected cold mid level temperatures tonight the ECM, UKMO,GFS, ICON and GEM showing -10C and lower 850 hPa temps later Sunday into Mon, the Fax charts showing trough lines feeding down over the country and I am thinking that there is a growing possibility of snowfall mainly for now in Northern counties overnight Sunday into Monday. The models of course differ but some showing widespread snow falling but too early to know. As for settling snow that is another question and probably wouldn't last long unless there was a substantial dump and of course depending on the altitude of the terrain. Windy too ( some yellow warnings possible ) especially on to coasts and the W, NW, N and E coasts quite fresh. ICON showing a very cold wind chill and at this early stage showing widespread wintry falls including snow to lower levels in places, especially in the Northern half of the country but perhaps not much sticking lower down.

Unstable flow also and early indications of convective showers of hail and potential for thunderstorms but not high at this stage, need to be closer the time to have a better idea.

Just my interpretation of the charts at the moment out of interest.

Indeed the 510 dam line almost touches my location! Unbelievably cold! Very fascinating Synoptics!

I imagine we will be pummelled with snow showers! Cannot wait! Will be interesting to see how much of a drop we get with the cold front?

Wowsers!
It's really chilly here in Firhouse Dublin 24 you can feel that Arctic chill in the air.
Mad to think you'll be sunbathing in glorious Kerry!

Just been keeping an eye on Fri /Sat when it is expected to turn colder again after a couple of degrees rise during daytime midweek. The models all showing cold mid level temperatures and are showing cold if not very cold 500 hPa temps nearby or over us. Been showing a rise in precipitation also but we have seen how the charts got downgraded with a big shift East leading up to the current cold spell, nevertheless it is something to keep an eye on perhaps. Currently looks to have convective potential leading to wintry precipitation, hail and thunderstorms would be a possibility going by current ECM 12Z. Early days but for me anyway a focus to pin point and see how the models are fairing and if anything comes of it.

Keeping relatively dry over the coming days apart from a few heavier local showers. Wondering how much the fronts will move in over Ireland later Fri / early Sat, currently looks like the HP will do a fair job of blocking it for a good part of the country on Sat but looks a bit wet up along Atlantic counties and lighter the further inland and may not reach the E or SE, but early days yet, Sun is another story but that is beyond +120 hrs yet.

The prolonged dry spell will continue over the next 7 to 10 days with high pressure dominating over the coming week.

Temperatures will be around average for the time of year reaching 10 to 15C. Eastern areas may be cooler at times due to easterly or south-easterly sea breezes.



High pressure will last into the weekend and the early part of next week before colder weather will move down from the north.





The extended dry spell of weather will continue with little or no rain over the coming week.



It should feel pleasantly mild in most areas away from the coastal areas with some strong sunshine at times making it feel very nice. Great weather for walking, cycling and gardening.

End of April start of May looks cold but the Atlantic is dead for now (probably will reinvigorate itself in time for Summer)

ECM shows well how we get the most out of the Temperatures here NW of Tralee on these set ups when there is a SE'ly breeze and an added Fohn effect. Sat looks decent.

Monday looks like there could be a rainfall warning.
After all it is a Bank Holiday

Yr.no has predicted 25mm for Sligo and they are usually reliable.
