Warm and Sunny, much colder later

Looks like the warm weather with good Sunshine will last throughout the week. Warmest on west coasts with temperatures typically 16 - 19C in sunshine. Much cooler East coasts - around 10 - 13C in a freshening Easterly wind. This situation should remain like this till Thursday or Friday next week. So very pleasant and not much cloud really, if any, most of the time. Just a gentle, later brisk Easterly wind. Dry aswell.


However things will be turning colder from next weekend and there is the risk of wintry weather at that stage as High Pressure moves into Greenland. But that's a long way off. Enjoy next week. Summer at times

17.6c in Sligo today think it was 19c in Claremorris. More like June or July.

Yeah unfortunately next week(end) looks decidedly dodgy and single figures once again.

A battleground situation between very cold and very mild is coming next weekend. Winter's last attack so to speak. Heavy Rain, Sleet and Snow seems likely atm but it is a long way out. Still, I suspect Winter has not left our shores just yet.


A situation much like the snow storm last week for much of the country cannot be ruled out.

I suspected the inevitable outcome was retrogression of this high pressure into Greenland - the outcome is certain to be cold or very cold. The models are currently firming up on this situation.

Well I say it's possible, I remember I had a heavy snow shower sometime in the middle of April about 3 or 4 years ago but nothing major, however I just can't see us having another snowstorm like we had a couple weeks ago till next winter at least.

One April day in 1995 it was 19c or close to it before noon, by 6pm there was lying snow on the hills around here... anything is possible - even into May.

No. Simply observing the models. The risk is decreasing but still there. It will be turning colder though - that is certain enough.

yes cold for weekend but www.wetterzentrale.de has longer range showing high residing close to or over ireland for most of April (later runs may change this)

Dont think temps will reach the peaks of weekend again in April more like 10c to 15c. Weekend will be 5c to 9c.
