Risk of summer from Tuesday!




Oh so many of us had given up any hope of any proper weather. Not anymore though. From Tuesday there is finally a clear signal across all the models that the weather is about to change quite dramatically as high pressure builds over the country. This will bring more sunshine and temperatures should be getting up to the mid twenties later midweek next week particularly in northern half of the country. Still some cloud and outbreaks of rain on Tuesday though but by Wednesday this will tend to dissolve readily. Any lingering showery rain in the southwest should die out aswell. Southern and some eastern coasts cooler with an onshore breeze thereafter. Turning humid aswell. If anything getting even better, even warmer toward the end of next week. Maybe just a hint of a breakdown from the southwest next weekend with some thunderstorms possible but that's long way out. It's pretty much open ended how long the good weather may last, for now. Enjoy! BBL

MT Cranium says we are back to more unsettled weather after next weekend if I understand his last forecast correctly!

It's too early to be that downbeat yet If this is the situation next Saturday I doubt many will be moaning next weekend (except in the far southwest - thunderstorms are likely in any gradual breakdown from the west) Get the bbq's ready...



On a serious note it really is open ended in terms of the forecast. Next weekend is very much still in play. It tends to be the case that the models are over zealous at this range in breaking this kind of pattern. We will be wanting the block to hold out the atlantic as long as possible. MT Cranium is referring to the traditional breakdown pattern showing on the models. It is very typical of what we see this time of year pior to the beginning of any warm spell. But in the end it's never really that simple. It tends to get pushed back rather than forward would be my experience of these setups. I am very hopeful for next weekend. Very happy with the prospects.

Cork is going to have a very fine week from Wednesday IMO. Nothing I can see to complain about - bit of an onshore breeze. Plenty of warm sunshine like the rest of us. Temperatures low to mid twenties Now maybe later in the weekend your first for some storms if things start to breakdown but that's not certain at all for now.


And here is a reminder of what the sun looks like for those who actually might not remember at this stage



It's so beautiful *sobs*

He's not always correct you know and does get things wrong, just like anyone else.

The best thing to do if you want an accurate long-range forecast i.e. over 5 days, is to look at several different forecasts and see what they're all saying e.g. BBC, MET E, on here, and maybe even SKY or something.
