September Indian summer possiblity

The weather atm is depressing with low pressure dominating until Friday but this will gradually fill.

In to the weekend pressure gradually builds from the south and next week looks very good by typical September standards with a lot of sunny weather and warm or even very warm at times with temperatures in to the low 20's widely. High pressure anchored to the east is set to dominate our weather steering up warm continental southeasterly winds. Monday probably the fly in the ointment. A fair bit of cloud and drizzle but that is just an interruption really from Sunday which promises a really good day with long spells of sunshine and mid summer like weather. And Tuesday on is the max we can get at this time of year really.

Summer is not over just yet although recently it's felt like it.

Also the orientation of the high pressure later on leaves open the possibility of thunderstorms from around the Bay of Biscay with dramatically increased lifted air instability and humidity. This could occur toward the end of next week as Atlantic systems try and fail to break through. It's more a typical early August event but it's something to watch.

Big change on the way. Enjoy

I always dread the start of September due to the fact that it always seems to be very warm. At this time of year I'm already looking forward to a nice bit of chilly weather. Hate that we always have to put up with this strange blip where it suddenly turns into midsummer again.

I'd say roll on the heat! We have October, November, December, January and February to look forward to for some cold (hopefully!).

It will be cold long enough, August has been very disappointing, the rain was needed, but the mean air temperatures have been 1.8c lower here compared to the last two years.

A bit of heat and settled weather will do us all a bit of good.

Why do people wish for hot weather??? It can be extremely uncomfortable and stuffy when it's hot....some people like cold weather, others like hot weather, others like both - simples!

I am really only cold for about one month - usually November. That is the time when you need to acclimatise your clothes and outlook to the cold. Once I am "used to" the cold, I don't have any issue with it. I have some great layers, jumpers, jackets and hats that I love to wear on 'cold' days.

By December I am nearly looking forward to the Christmas Day dip in Salthill!

Some people have health problems that are exacerbated by warm weather, so it's understandable that they wish for cooler conditions.

I find the older I get the more I crave the heat. Ireland's climate is not a good one for old bones
