Early glimspe of summer from Thursday

Continental high pressure pushing north over the UK/Ireland looks like bringing a very happy mix of blue skies and temps in the high teens. Could 20 get nudged in the flats lands of Laois/Offaly? Bring it on

I'd say it will get quite close to 20 in parts even before Thursday.

The weekend and early next week could be even better...

We've been spoiled already over the past month with the weather, warm, at least a few hours of sunshine most days and very little rain. Hopefully a sign of things to come for the summer months

I'm not a fan of warm weather but it brings out the best in most people and that has to be welcomed. Roll on the winter.:@

slight slight slight slight chance of snow midmonth on mountain tops

keep an eye on the forecasts but high could win out and this would be nonsense

That's a given considering the Easter holidays don't start till the 15th. My long range weather forecast for the Summer is as follows.


Starting the 15th April, I forecast 2+ weeks of not just cooler and unsettled weather but downright cold with morning to evening rain... it'll warm up every night and the rain will stop but will start again at 8am. There will be some breaks in the weather where the rain will stop and blue skies will appear...probably for about two hours at a time. Just enough time for optimists to pack up the kids and head to the nearest beach only to find it shrouded in fog and persistent rain coming in from the hidden sea. When they return home it will be raining but they will be told by the neighbours that they missed several hours of blazing sunshine.

However, we can look forward to a sudden return of the Summer weather on Tuesday, 3rd May, waking up to bright blue, cloudless skies with a gold sun heating us up to a good 18-22 degrees. It will take a downturn again from the evening of the 7th May but be sure that it brighten up again on 9th May. This pattern of 5 days of dry and sunny weather alternating with 2 days of sometimes artic cold and heavy rain will continue until the end of June when we will have 8 weeks of unrelenting drizzle and grey skies with the odd unremarkable storm.

The first week in September will be an excellent time to holiday in Ireland as sunshine is guaranteed.

That's the way it usually goes.

Any of this based on fact or is it just you opinion?

I'm pretty sure its just tongue in cheek based on school holidays It always used to feel that way at school, I remember back doing my leaving cert and there was blazing sunshine for 2 weeks

Nobody can do any more than take a reasonable guess for the end of the month at this stage but for the next two weeks at least its looking warm and calm from Thursday onwards, no real breakdown on the gfs right up to the 20th

Summer term exams nearly always were warm and sunny I remember, and September is always the most settled month in Ireland.
