Winds looking stronger again late afternoon / early evening on Monday more so over the Southern half of the country and especially in the W , SW with strong NW / W'ly's .

Strong for the time of the year especially with the trees in leaf.

Got a feeling that this could get even stronger, it has been trending that way now nearly every run.

Yep - In my experience 9 times out of ten the weather is always rather grim in the week before and after the May Bank Holiday. In contrast the June Bank Holiday is usually far more seasonal

The wintry showers threat probably increases from late Monday to Wednesday as thicknesses below 522 dm are indicated for Ulster by then.

As to the question about next Friday night into Saturday, the general run of forecast models is for a wet and windy system to miss Ireland to the south and hit southern England next Saturday but even on the outer edges of that it will be very cool, slightly damp and unpleasant for outdoor activity (particularly at night).

That could change for the worse as model depictions of systems missing to south have a habit of shifting one way or the other, further could mean a secondary low and closer would mean the full onset of those bad conditions (+4C windy with rain would be the likely result for anyone on the northwest side of this system).

It will have to be tomorrow so , looks a decent enough day, best earlier and cloudier in the afternoon, maybe just a shower or could stay dry. Was thinking out West myself around the Peninsula. Kells Bay on the list for another weekend too.


Latest ICON has the second round of winds in the afternoon a bit further N , looks like a high end yellow, will it get even stronger ?? A lot of counties will be under yellow wind warning I would think with the strongest winds in the bottom 2/3 of the country.

Not at all. I like good weather and can’t understand how someone can like rain or storms even in the weather forum. No bother with anyone talking about bad weather but liking it......... don’t get it.

Weather can't give you the flu. Its a viral infection. Plenty of fluid and rest.

Haha I meant in terms of spreading the infection. Isn't certain weather known for that?

A straight 10/10 for this morning down in Cork anyway, lovely clear morning - excellent visibilty - can see the wind farms on the Cork/Kerry border from Cobh with the naked eye. People out kayaking too and someone camping on the beach. Cloud building a bit now but it was a right cracker.

Will be a hell of a change come tomorrow. Hopefully the beans survive, they've only been planted for a week.

Almost on a yearly basis, and usually around this time of year, we get forecasts (and weather) that are apparently 'unseasonable', but are they? Wet and windy spells seem common enough events during the first half of May. Maybe that is just my distorted perception though.
