Sorry, I should've added "except near the east coast" - I used to live on the coast in Dublin and I agree that an east breeze, even with good sunshine, was very chilly however since I moved about 40km inland (and also more sheltered), I can easily be 4 or 5c warmer than my old home during these setups.

Rarely warm, in the east!

I'll happily take an easterly in the west!

HP seems to be winning the tussle next weekend opening the route for cooler E / NE 'lys . Looking much cooler than earlier runs if these charts were to verify.

Still uncertain though .

Quote from Met Eireann

'The further outlook is uncertain at this stage. Weather fronts are approaching Ireland from the Atlantic on Thursday night and they may bring rain on Friday and during the weekend, but there is an equal chance that the rain will stay west of us and that it will remain largely dry over the weekend'.

BBC MeteoGroup going firmly with the east HP winning the battle for the later part of the week/weekend (the old 10 day forecast is missed )

What old 10 day forecast was that?

When the UK Met Office had to BBC gig the 9.55pm forecast on BBC News and the Countryfile slot (casual but clean jeans only) would give an outlook for 10 days, not much detail obviously but they'd outline the likely pressure and jetstream set up and so could at least go with broad brushstrokes about warmer/colder, wetter/drier.

The 21:55 weather still broadcasts with the longer range forecast but I think what you mean is that the forecast is no longer provided by the UK Met Office?

If it's any consolation, the UK Met Office still do a 10 day forecast online every Wednesday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oiw3CiO_FQ

I actually prefer this online version as the forecasters don't have time limitations as they do so on broadcast TV.

The 9.55 now is 7 days, they never go past a week. This happened from when MeteoGroup took over.

A lot of heavy rain sitting off the coast over the weekend, the kind that could produce spotl flooding if it moved a bit inland. Looks cloudy and dampish at the least along Atlantic coastal counties. Just coming into the more reliable timeframe but still uncertainty.

That kind of scenario reminds me a lot of early October 2016 when there was a narrow but intense band of rain which got stuck to the extreme west of the country throughout on the 3rd and Scandinavian blocking was forming to our east. The block would win the battle.

Latest ECM 12Z showing the rain bands holding off the coast until Sunday sometime and then possibly getting very wet and increasingly windy into Monday with gales possible as a LP system comes up from the S and tracks up along the W of Ireland. Big uncertainty on how this will pan out.

Looking promising - good warming week once this shiote is passed and then a "blip" early next week and then in F1 territory (+280 hours) more HP sauce.

A cooling trend again around Sun / Mon perhaps . Front could cross the country Sunday . Currently next week IMO if these charts were to happen look cool and quite wet at times , big showers possible with hail and thunderstorms maybe. A bit off so nothing certain though.

Looking very unsettled now from next Monday as we appear to get stuck in a trough of the jet so those low pressures will be slowly meandering around our shores.

Still a pleasant and mild period in between now and again.
