Warmer weather on way?

Certainly at present post May 18th looks like the temperatures will creep up for a few days and we may get 20c

This will bring up the low May mean temperature significantly

Will be nice to feel some warmer weather that is due in next week, but in terms of anything exciting weatherwise, then the drabness just goes on. This really has to be the most boring year for weather I have ever lived through, and that is saying something after the debacle of the last few years. Ok, some half impressive low temps at the beginning of the year but there is more to weather than just temperatures. Active weather has all but stopped since November 2009 imo. Any frontal zones that have struggled since then have been weak, pointless affairs. Any showers seem to lack a certain punch. Strong winds have become a thing of the past, all we get now is just a nagging polar maritime breeze that just adds the general ugliness of the skies, today being a perfect example of that .

If the 2nd half of this year is stormy, wet and violent, I will happy, just so long as it more pleasant and warmer than currently. I don't mind cold weather, but this half arsed crap we just seem to be constantly getting is beginning to bug me out a little.

Rant over!

We'd need a Mediterranean-style heat wave at this stage to bring up the mean temps in the Dublin area to anywhere close to the May median average. Dublin Airport is almost 3.5 degrees below the May median and we're now half-way through the month: though I'm still convinced there's something going on at this station.

Im with you Deep Easterly. Wheres the excitement.

Often for some reason the months of Spring are boring though - dont know why - maybe the Highs just hover around near us then in Summer we either get heat(1995,2003) or rain(2007,2008,2009) or in the odd year banalness (1989)

Prob liven up in the 2nd half though. Starting with a mini warm spell next week

Bizarre attitude and quite scary. Maybe a new hobby is needed? Car racing? something with real excitement. while we bask in warm dry still weather that grows crops we need for food and which we love! Weather to rest and grow in without any worries so we can get on with more important things than mopping up floods etc.

Clearing up after bad weather is the most boring and futile and wasteful thing there is!

The more extreme types of weather are our real excitement though, if we change hobby the weather isn't going to stop it will continue being violent or calm whether we're watching or not.

This is off topic though, it does look like the warmth is coming at last
GFS is progging temps up to 22C in the midlands by Thursday although this could still change

No it doesn't. The chart clearly shows that the midlands stretching up towards the north will be 22 degrees, but closer to the coast (i.e. Coleraine) will be cooler.
