May shocker: strong winds, squally showers, even the potential for wintry showers

I think it's likely that a level one (yellow) wind and rain warning may be hoisted for Sunday night and Monday within the next few hours. Low pressure taking aim at Connacht will cross the country late Sunday night and bring intervals of heavy rain, as strong southeast winds will veer around to southwest then west to northwest increasing in speed later on Monday possibly into the 70-110 km/hr range.

The next few days will be unseasonably cold and bands of showers in moderate northwest to north winds could actually contain some mixed wintry varieties over higher parts of the north; hail mixing in with squally rain showers will be more widespread at lower elevations.

Even before the stormy weather arrives, today will have its own locally heavy showers with potential for hail too.

the ECM has moved towards the GFS in terms of temporary wintriness in Monday's rain event for the north. The rain looks lighter than what the GFS is showing. Some showers after the low passes, most frequent in the north with a chance of wintry showers over northern hills as MT said.

What was looking fairly benign in the earlier runs is certainly a lot windier and wetter on the latest output, ARPEGE and ICON have increased the wind speeds in the last two runs but showing maybe a bit less rainfall than the ECM at this stage. Quite a complex feature with the Jet in on the action helping to put spin on it, a bit to go yet with the final picture of this, seems to be a fairly strong whip of the winds developing for later Monday as the LP continues to deepen crossing the country, the winds would be freer as the front would be well cleared. Will this evolve into something stronger ??

Spot flooding possible in places. Would imagine with the ground so hard there could initially be a lot of run off.

Wintry showers on higher ground in Northern counties.

I can hear my veggies singing with the rain.
After 11mm in April this is welcome. Just hope the wind part doesn't happen. All my fruit trees are in bloom.

We had hailstones this morning in Galway after an otherwise sunny start. It has been dry and fine since.

Ride me sideways was another one.

Can anyone tell me is there another wet and windy event happening on Friday 7th into Sat 8th?. I've organised a Paddle for Pieta fundraiser for Darkness into Light. I'm hoping we won't be all swept away ��

Way too far out to know. Best just keep an eye MT's daily forecasts on here in the run up.
