Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Rain at times in Ulster for most of the day, otherwise partly cloudy as some brighter intervals develop across the east, westerly to northwesterly winds 50 to 80 km/hr gradually setting in for western counties, while variable but mostly southerly breezes in Leinster and parts of east Munster, passing showers redeveloping. Highs near 8 C.

TONIGHT ... Windy, turning colder in the east by midnight, lows eventually 2 to 4 C. A few intervals of light rain or drizzle, sleet possible on higher terrain.

THURSDAY ... Cold and windy, wintry showers at times, highs near 7 C.

FRIDAY ... Frost likely in the east and north, morning lows near -2 C, then increasing cloud during the day, rain, with strong south to southwest winds by evening, and highs near 10 C. About 10 mm of rain on average.

SATURDAY ... Breezy to windy, mild in the early morning hours but turning gradually colder during the day, temperatures around 9 C at first then falling off to 5 C.

SUNDAY ... Windy and cold, showers of hail or sleet. Temperatures around 5 or 6 C. For the time being the risk of severe wind gusts has diminished but moderate westerly winds of 50 to 80 km/hr are expected.

MONDAY ... Continued windy and cold, passing wintry showers. Highs 5 to 7 C.

TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY will see slight moderation to near 9 C but continued unsettled and showery.

FURTHER OUTLOOK ... Temperatures will be on a roller coaster ride towards mid-month and the 17th, some days quite mild and others quite cold, as the upper level flow oscillates from westerly to northwesterly at various intervals. Timing this is pointless this far in advance as it is bound to keep changing on later guidance.

My local weather on Tuesday continued dry and cold with sunny intervals and highs near -3 C. We will see an increase in cloud today and snow by this evening, about 5 to 8 cms expected here through Thursday. After that, a slow moderation back to more normal temperatures (which by this point would be almost the same as in Ireland, about 7 to 9 C).

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Windy and cold with showers, some of them wintry on higher terrain in west and north. Winds west to northwest 50 to 80 km/hr. Highs 5 to 8 C.

TONIGHT ... Gradual clearing, cold, some frost likely in eastern and northern counties. Lows -2 to +3 C.

FRIDAY ... Increasing cloud, windy, outbreaks of rain (5-10 mm likely). Winds south to southwest 60 to 100 km/hr. Highs 7 to 9 C.

SATURDAY ... After a rather mild overnight period with southwest winds, turning colder in stages during the day, temperatures in the range of 7 to 9 C at first then 4 to 7 C by afternoon, strong westerly winds 60 to 100 km/hr. Wintry showers developing.

SUNDAY ... Windy and cold with wintry showers, winds westerly 50 to 80 km/hr, lows near 2 C and highs 5 to 8 C.

MONDAY ... Windy, rain at times, somewhat milder by late in the day, highs 7 to 10 C.

TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY will then turn colder again with strong west to northwest winds and passing wintry showers. Highs 4 to 7 C.

OUTLOOK ... A milder interval will follow near end of next week, but that won't last too long before it then turns cold again. In any case, the dominant theme for the next ten days appears to be a steady moderate to strong westerly wind and frequent rain sometimes turning wintry over higher ground especially.

My local weather turned cloudy on Wednesday with a somewhat milder high of about 3 C (still below average for here), and a light sleety wet snow is falling now, expected to accumulate to a few centimetres by mid-day.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Rain developing, lasting for about three to six hours and producing about 10-15 mm, with rather strong south to southwest winds of 50 to 80 km/hr. Highs about 9 C north to 11 C south. Some dry intervals as winds shift more to southwest by late afternoon.

TONIGHT ... Another interval of rain then turning colder, temperatures steady near 7 C falling gradually after midnight to reach lows near 3 C.

SATURDAY ... Windy and cold with passing wintry showers, winds westerly 50 to 80 km/hr, some higher gusts around west coast by evening. Highs 5 to 8 C.

SUNDAY ... Breezy to windy, cold, wintry showers. Winds westerly 40 to 70 km/hr. Lows near -2 C and highs near 6 C.

MONDAY ... Windy, rain and strong south to southwest winds, temperatures somewhat milder near 10 C although feeling rather cold due to the strong winds of 70 to 100 km/hr.

TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY will become colder again with strong west to northwest winds, wintry showers, highs only 4 to 7 C.

Somewhat milder towards THURSDAY 14th, but temperatures sliding down one more time after that, starting to recover to more normal mid-March values just about in time for St Patrick's Day.

My local weather produced a bit of sleety snow in the morning, only 1-2 cms accumulated, and a slow thaw has begun with the high on Thursday reaching 3 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Wintry showers and cold westerly winds in parts of the north and central counties, but mostly rain showers for the south. Highs about 6 C north to 9 C south. Winds westerly 50 to 80 km/hr, decreasing by afternoon and evening.

TONIGHT ... Rain or sleet will turn to snow over parts of the north, and then by morning also across parts of the inland south. This rain-snow situation may be divided by elevation at first but the snow will eventually begin to appear at lower elevations by morning. Lows 1 to 3 C.

SUNDAY ... Outbreaks of snow or sleet with some accumulations of 3 to 5 cms possible, most likely in the midlands, inland north and southeast away from coasts and larger towns. Cold, with a strong westerly wind redeveloping during the day. Highs only 4 to 7 C.

MONDAY ... Turning somewhat milder in strong south to southwest winds, rain becoming heavy at times, winds gusting to 90 km/hr. Morning lows 1 to 3 C and afternoon highs 8 to 11 C.

TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY will become much colder again with mixed wintry showers and some falls of snow again on higher terrain at least, possibly lower down at times. Highs each day 5 to 8 C and morning lows near -1 C. Winds west to northwest 50 to 80 km/hr except stronger in Ulster and north Connacht on Tuesday, 70 to 110 km/hr.

THURSDAY and FRIDAY of next week will turn milder briefly with highs near 12 C.

It will then turn quite cold for weekend of 16th-17th with that cold spell also relenting after about two days, so in general a bit of a roller-coaster ride for temperatures but always on the windy side and frequently wet, sometimes wintry.

My local weather on Friday was mostly cloudy with sunny breaks, and widespread light snow showers that were mostly "virga" over the valleys, while it looked to be snowing on the nearby peaks. The high was about 2 C. I believe we have been continuously below normal in temperature here since the 2nd of February.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Outbreaks of rain or sleet will turn to snow especially over inland areas of Connacht and west Ulster later this morning, some accumulations of 2 to 5 cms possible there. Mixed wintry showers more likely further east and south. Strong westerly winds developing, 50 to 80 km/hr for most, 70 to 110 km/hr near Atlantic coasts. The combination of wind, snow and cold temperatures could make for some local winter storm conditions in some parts of the north and west. Highs 4 to 7 C.

TONIGHT ... Windy and cold with passing wintry showers, lows -2 to +2 C. Winds westerly 50 to 80 km/hr.

MONDAY ... Sleet turning to rain, somewhat milder by late in the day, south to southwest winds 70 to 110 km/hr, highs near 10 C. About 10 to 20 mm rain expected.

TUESDAY ... Windy, colder again with wintry showers, some snow possible on hills. Temperatures steady 4 to 7 C. Winds west to northwest 50 to 80 km/hr, but stronger in coastal north and west, gusts to 110 km/hr there.

WEDNESDAY ... Partly cloudy, isolated wintry showers, lows near -2 and highs near 7 C. Not quite as windy although still breezy.

THURSDAY ... Briefly milder, highs near 12 C, rain by late in the day, strong westerly winds resuming.

FRIDAY ... Windy and turning colder, wintry showers, highs near 7 C.

OUTLOOK ... The roller coaster ride will continue with Saturday quite cold, Sunday 17th a bit milder and Monday 18th milder again. Following that, a milder pattern should develop for the last third of the month and the colder intervals should stop interrupting the normal progress towards spring (for a while anyway).

My local weather on Saturday was mostly cloudy but dry, as snow showers once again formed over nearby mountains but stayed over the peaks mostly. The high was about 4 C. We are not losing much snow cover yet but some melting has begun.

Forecasts for Ireland



ALERT for strong winds tonight, Tuesday into early Wednesday, peak gusts Tuesday night could exceed 120 km/hr.


TODAY ... A few brighter intervals this morning, isolated wintry showers dying out for a while, then sleet on higher ground, rain elsewhere, any sleet turning to rain by late afternoon, somewhat milder by late in the day, south to southwest winds 70 to 110 km/hr, highs near 10 C. About 10 to 20 mm rain expected.

TONIGHT ... Strong southwest winds 70 to 110 km/hr, rain ending, turning colder after midnight. Temperatures steady 8 to 11 C most of the night, falling sharply before sunrise to 1 or 2 C. Winds veering westerly and easing slightly.

TUESDAY ... Windy, colder again with wintry showers, some snow possible on hills. Temperatures steady 4 to 7 C. Winds west to northwest 50 to 80 km/hr, but stronger in coastal north and west, gusts to 110 km/hr there. Feeling very cold in the wind, about -1 C.

TUESDAY NIGHT ... Strong gales or storm force winds expected during the first half of the overnight period with only a slight moderation later on, winds west-northwest 80 to 130 km/hr in exposed coastal areas of Ulster and Connacht, 70 to 110 km/hr most other regions. Expect at least an orange level alert with this, possibly red in some parts of the northwest. Note that this wind direction can make fairly good progress inland through north-central counties even towards central Leinster. With the gales, some driving rain or sleet showers likely, temperatures steady around 3 to 5 C, feeling more like -2 C in the wind.

WEDNESDAY ... Partly cloudy, isolated wintry showers, lows -1 to +3 C and highs near 7 C. Not quite as windy although still some gusts above 80 km/hr all day. Winds backing to west-southwest later in the day.

THURSDAY ... Briefly milder, highs near 12 C, rain by late in the day, strong westerly winds resuming.

FRIDAY ... Windy and turning colder, wintry showers, highs near 7 C. There may be an interval of strong wind gusts in the evening around northern coasts.

OUTLOOK ... The roller coaster ride will continue with Saturday quite cold, Sunday 17th a bit milder and Monday 18th milder again. Following that, a milder and more seasonable weather pattern should develop for the last third of the month and the colder intervals should stop interrupting the normal progress towards spring (for a while anyway). This milder interval will still bring an average amount of rainfall.

My local weather on Sunday was sunny, feeling rather mild but air temperatures were only about 3 or 4 C, ice and snow remaining untouched in the shade and slowly thawing in the sun.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Storm "Gareth" will build up gradually to very strong west to northwest winds peaking late afternoon and evening with speeds of 80 to 130 km/hr expected in exposed coastal north and west, 70 to 110 km/hr in most other areas. Very cold in the strong winds, with passing squally or wintry showers, some snow likely on higher terrain. Highs 4 to 7 C, feeling like -1 C. A few places on the east and south coast might not be quite as wintry with longer sunny breaks and some slightly lower wind speeds at times.

TONIGHT ... Very windy and cold, sleet or wet snow in some areas, rain closer to sea level, winds staying 80-120 km/hr until about midnight then slowly easing in north and west coastal storm zone, and easing from 70-110 km/hr elsewhere, but not by that much, so it will be quite windy by morning still, lows -1 to +3 C. Risk of coastal flooding around Donegal Bay and possibly some other places on west coast.

WEDNESDAY ... Partly cloudy, passing showers, some continuing wintry, and rather cold. Winds easing a bit to westerly 50-80 km/hr. Highs about 8 C.

THURSDAY ... Breezy, milder, rain at times, some partly cloudy to overcast dry intervals mostly in the south, winds westerly 50-80 km/hr. Lows near 4 C and highs near 12 C.

FRIDAY ... Overcast, rain at times, strong southwest winds possible by late in the day near south coast where rain will become heavier and more persistent overnight into Saturday (ending as sleet or snow on some hills). Highs near 9 C.

SATURDAY ... Windy, colder, wintry showers or intervals of sleet or snow, highs 4 to 7 C.

SUNDAY 17th will continue rather cold although moderating with some partly cloudy intervals and only isolated showers, highs 8 to 10 C.

OUTLOOK ... Milder from Monday 18th onward, with more normal mid to late March weather, sometimes reaching 13-15 C range, and rarely lower than 10 C by day. There will be occasional rain in this spell, no prolonged dry spells although a few dry days during the last third of the month.

My local weather on Monday was overcast and cold with snow arriving late in the day, and rather windy at times, highs only about +1 C, and some accumulation of snow already (3 or 4 cms), but it does appear that we are going to see a moderation of our long cold spell soon.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Partly cloudy, strong winds gradually easing to moderate westerly 50-80 km/hr, passing showers, some with hail or thunder. Highs about 8 C.

TONIGHT ... Breezy, outbreaks of light rain, lows 3 to 7 C.

THURSDAY ... Breezy, milder, intervals of light rain mostly in north and central counties, highs 11 to 13 C.

FRIDAY ... Partly cloudy to overcast, rain developing late in the day, spreading into south and west. Highs near 10 C.

SATURDAY ... Rain may end with an interval of sleet or wet snow in some central and northern counties, but it will stay milder in the southeast with highs near 11 C. Otherwise temperatures will fall in most other regions from overnight readings around 5-8 C to the 2-5 C range before recovering slightly. Winds south to southwest 40 to 70 km/hr to the south of the track of low pressure, veering to west then northwest later in the day (this will happen in the morning hours in Connacht and west Ulster, mid-day in Munster and the midlands).

SUNDAY ... Breezy to windy, rather cold again, mixed wintry showers at first, then more isolated rain showers, as temperatures gradually recover to about 8 C.

MONDAY and NEXT WEEK will bring milder weather and it may be a more persistent spell with highs of 13 to 16 C likely.

My local weather on Tuesday was overcast, snow ended by sunrise with only a slushy accumulation, then the day was rather cold but a slow thaw has commenced more from the higher sun angle than any actual warmth in the air mass, highs of about 2 or 3 C. We are looking forward to milder weather here next week as well.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Breezy and milder with rain becoming light and patchy for the mid-day period, then resuming with heavier outbreaks mostly in central and northern counties this evening, winds southwest to west 40 to 70 km/hr. Highs 11 to 13 C. About 10-15 mm further rain likely.

TONIGHT ... Rain rather heavy at times in the north, clearing after midnight, somewhat colder in northern counties. Lows 3-5 C north to 7 C in the south.

FRIDAY ... Overcast, mild, or in the north turning milder again, then rain developing towards late afternoon spreading into the south and west. Winds generally light southerly becoming moderate southwest in Munster by late afternoon. Highs near 10 C.

SATURDAY ... Early morning rain could turn to sleet and then snow on some higher ground in north, from Mayo to central Ulster, to the north of the track of low pressure. To the south, it will stay milder and continue to rain until late morning. All areas will then see a rapid fall in temperatures (arriving later in the southeast) and morning highs of 7 to 10 C will be replaced by late afternoon readings of 4 to 7 C, possibly lower over fresh snow cover (which could be 3 to 7 cms on some higher parts of north Connacht and Ulster). Winds veering to northwest with the colder air, 40 to 70 km/hr.

SUNDAY (St Patrick's Day) ... Bright and cold to start the day with isolated wintry showers in a moderate northwest wind. Partly cloudy and somewhat more moderate by afternoon. Lows -2 to +2 C and highs 6 to 9 C.

NEXT WEEK appears quite mild and generally dry with just a few intervals of light rain with weak frontal passages and these confined mostly to the north. Highs will be in the 13 to 16 C range. Following that, a more active spell by the weekend of 23rd-24th with stronger winds and intervals of heavy rain, but not turning much colder with that, and staying relatively mild the following week (11 to 14 C would be the early estimate on temperatures then).

My local weather on Wednesday was partly cloudy to overcast although with some decent sunny breaks at times, and the high about 4 C. We are looking forward to a significant warming trend here as well (next week). Meanwhile, a blizzard developed over the central to northern plains states with very strong winds, heavy snow falling from Denver northeast into Nebraska. This is heading well north of the Midwest towards the upper Great Lakes region. Mild and breezy ahead of this storm for most of the eastern U.S.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Overcast, mild, moderate southwest winds and patchy light rain or drizzle, turning heavier in the south and west by late afternoon, as winds also pick up to 50-80 km/hr at times. Highs near 11 C.

TONIGHT ... Rain will spread across the country and some northern inland locations will see a mixture of sleet and wet snow at times, but otherwise it will remain quite mild over most areas with lows near 10 C.

SATURDAY ... Rain continuing heavy at times across the east and south, breezy to windy and temperatures steady near 10 C until a strong cold front passes by early afternoon. Hail or thunder possible at that time, followed by gusty west to northwest winds 60 to 100 km/hr, and rapidly falling temperatures. Further north, a mixture of rain, sleet and wet snow during the morning with some accumulations on hills, then wintry showers and cold northwest winds, temperatures steady 2 to 4 C and possibly falling a bit lower where snow covers the ground. The rainfall totals during the event will be 20-30 mm with local spot flooding, and some potential in the north for 2-5 cm snow cover on some higher terrain by Saturday morning. Follow the progress of the event on the storm thread, snow is only likely to the north of the track of low pressure which is looking like Mayo to central Ulster.

SUNDAY (St Patrick's Day) ... Bright and cold to start the day with isolated wintry showers in a moderate northwest wind. Partly cloudy and somewhat more moderate by afternoon. Lows -2 to +2 C and highs 6 to 9 C.

MONDAY ... Mostly cloudy, milder, breezy with occasional drizzle or light rain, patchy and mainly confined to north and west. Lows near 5 C and highs near 11 C.

TUESDAY to THURSDAY will be quite mild and generally dry with a slight risk of light rain at times in the northwest. Highs will reach 13 to 16 degrees and nights will be relatively mild also.

FRIDAY of next week will bring an end to this mild spell with rain and gusty winds. SATURDAY 23rd will turn colder again briefly (8 C) but then seasonably mild weather will resume for most of the last week of the month, possibly not quite as mild as this coming week but in the normal 12 to 14 C range.

My local weather on Thursday was overcast with some sun getting through layers of mostly higher cloud, and slightly milder at 4 C. We are looking to add a degree or two every day for about a week now which will allow our snow cover to evaporate into the dry air rather than running off, melt so far has been insignificant but the depth of our snow has decreased by this process of sublimation. The nearby hills are still covered in over 25 cms but the valleys are losing their snow cover quite rapidly now.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Rather mild and wet in all areas for the morning hours, temperatures steady around 11 or 12 C. About 10-15 mm further rainfall likely, although it will be reduced to 1-3 mm drizzle near the south coast. A sharp cold front will develop and sweep east across the country from late morning in western counties to mid-afternoon in the east. This may produce some squally showers with hail and perhaps thunder. Winds south to southwest 50 to 80 km/hr will veer rapidly to westerly 60 to 100 km/hr, then drop off gradually before turning more northwesterly as much colder air arrives. Temperatures this afternoon will drop gradually at first, then more rapidly towards evening.

TONIGHT ... Windy and cold with mixed wintry showers, some accumulations of wet snow on higher terrain mostly in western counties including west Munster and most of Connacht, west Ulster. Winds northwest 50 to 80 km/hr, lows -1 to +2 C.

SUNDAY 17th ... Bright and cold to start the day with passing wintry showers in some areas, then more rain than wintry types of precipitation in any afternoon showers, but some hail and thunder possible, although some long dry intervals should develop especially away from the Atlantic coasts. Highs 7 to 9 C.

MONDAY ... Mostly cloudy, occasional drizzle or light rain, milder. Overnight temperatures near 6 C and highs near 11 C.

TUESDAY ... Partly cloudy, outbreaks of light rain more confined to north and quite mild, highs near 13 C.

WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY will be very mild with some sunshine each day, fog or mist patches, highs 14 to 16 C.

FRIDAY ... Increasing cloud, rain by evening, highs near 12 C.

FURTHER OUTLOOK ... Dry and somewhat colder again next weekend (23rd-24th), highs around 8 to 10 C and a return of frosts at night in some rural areas. However this will be followed by relatively mild weather most of the following week with highs back up to around 13 C.

My local weather on Friday was overcast with brief glimpses of the sun through higher cloud layers, dry with light sleet showers appearing over nearby mountains but staying there with little cloud movement or wind, highs about 5 C.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Bright and cold to start the day with passing wintry showers in some areas, then by afternoon, any further showers will be more rain than wintry, but with some hail and thunder possible; however, some long dry intervals should develop especially away from the Atlantic coasts with partly cloudy skies. Highs 7 to 9 C. Moderate west to northwest winds will add some chill especially this morning.

TONIGHT ... Variable cloud, rather cold at first but with a milder trend after midnight, drizzle or light rain at times, temperatures steady around 2 to 4 C then rising slightly.

MONDAY ... Mostly cloudy, occasional drizzle or light rain, milder. Highs near 11 C.

TUESDAY ... Partly cloudy, outbreaks of light rain more confined to north and quite mild, highs near 13 C.

WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY will be very mild with some sunshine each day, fog or mist patches, highs 14 to 16 C.

FRIDAY ... Increasing cloud, rain by evening, highs near 12 C. Rather windy in parts of the north and west (southwest 60 to 90 km/hr).

FURTHER OUTLOOK ... Dry and somewhat colder again next weekend (23rd-24th), highs around 8 to 10 C and a return of frosts at night in some rural areas. However this will be followed by relatively mild weather most of the following week with highs back up to around 13 C and possibly higher in western counties.

My local weather was pleasantly milder with hazy sunshine on Saturday, and a high near 8 C. Our snow is fading away more by evaporation than melting. We also have 15 C temperatures predicted for mid-week here.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Mostly cloudy, occasional drizzle or light rain, moderate westerly winds 40 to 60 km/hr. Highs 11 to 13 C.

TONIGHT ... Overcast, occasional drizzle, lows near 6 C.

TUESDAY ... Morning drizzle should clear to partly cloudy skies and quite mild by afternoon, highs 13 to 15 C.

WEDNESDAY ... Partly cloudy, hazy and very mild. Lows near 7 C and highs 14 to 17 C.

THURSDAY ... Some rain across north during the morning, gradual clearing later, continued mild especially in the south and east, highs 12 to 16 C.

FRIDAY ... Increasing cloud, rain by afternoon and evening, highs near 12 C.

SATURDAY ... Clearing, somewhat colder with temperatures steady near 8 C.

SUNDAY ... Sunny intervals, lows -2 to +1 C with some frost, and afternoon highs 8 to 10 C.

OUTLOOK ... The following week will see a return to milder weather with highs back into the 13 to 16 C range.

My local weather on Sunday was sunny and mild, highs near 10 C (felt warmer than that in the sun). Higher elevations around here still have a 20-30 cm snow cover but valleys are beginning to lose most of their lying snow except that in the shade now. Clear outside now with a waxing gibbous moon (so they say).

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Morning drizzle should clear to partly cloudy skies and with moderate southwest breezes it will become quite mild by afternoon, with perhaps some patchy drizzle remaining over some parts of the north and west, with highs 13 to 15 C.

TONIGHT ... Rather cloudy, mild, lows near 7 C.

WEDNESDAY ... Partly to mostly cloudy, hazy and very mild. Lows near 7 C and highs 13 to 16 C.

THURSDAY ... Some rain across north during the morning, gradual clearing later, continued mild especially in the south and east, highs 12 to 16 C.

FRIDAY ... Increasing cloud, rain by afternoon and evening, highs near 12 C.

SATURDAY ... Morning cloud and rain will gradually yield to clearing skies, turning somewhat colder with temperatures steady near 8 C.

SUNDAY ... Sunny intervals, lows -2 to +1 C with some frost, and afternoon highs 8 to 10 C.

OUTLOOK ... The following week will see a return to milder weather with highs back into the 13 to 16 C range.

My local weather on Monday was once again sunny all day with mild highs of about 12 C. Some even warmer readings were reported in other areas of the province that have less snow around, and even here it felt a bit warmer than the shade thermometer readings.

Forecasts for Ireland



TODAY ... Partly to mostly cloudy, some longer sunny intervals inland south, hazy and very mild with highs 13 to 16 C.

TONIGHT ... A few intervals of light rain or drizzle in the north, mostly cloudy but dry further south, mild, lows 7 to 10 C. Any breaks in the overcast will allow a glimpse of the full moon.

THURSDAY ... Some rain across north during the morning, gradual clearing later, continued mild especially in the south and east, highs 12 to 16 C.

FRIDAY ... Increasing cloud, rain by afternoon and evening, lows 4 to 7 C and highs near 12 C. Moderate southwest winds 50 to 70 km/hr developing.

SATURDAY ... Morning cloud and patchy light rain will gradually yield to clearing skies, turning somewhat colder with temperatures steady near 8 C. There may be isolated afternoon showers near northwest coasts in 30-50 km/hr westerly winds.

SUNDAY ... Morning lows -2 to +1 C with some frost, then mostly sunny, cool but with light winds a reasonably pleasant day with afternoon highs 8 to 10 C.

MONDAY ... Hazy sunshine, another slight frost followed by 10-13 C daytime temperatures, light winds.

OUTLOOK ... The following week will see a return to milder weather with highs back into the 13 to 16 C range. When April begins, the current guidance suggests it will turn quite cold for about a week.

My local weather has continued glorious with sunshine, calm winds and highs close to 10 C here, and much warmer away from this valley where there might be less snow to influence the outcome. Highs reached 24 C in some parts of the province.
