Highs of 18 degrees and freezing nights: here’s this week’s weird weather forecast

Highs of 18 degrees and freezing nights: here’s this week’s weird weather forecast

As we enter another week of stay-at-home measures, we’re all depending on the weather to keep our spirits up


Ireland is in for a week of highs and lows weather-wise this week, as Met Éireann forecast soaring daytime temperatures leading to freezing nighttime ones.

The national forecaster has issued its predictions for the coming week, with changeable temperatures and conditions on the cards for many counties.

With many of us depending on fine spring weather for our daily exercise, the forecast has become even more important each week.

Here’s how it looks.

Tuesday

According to Met Éireann, today’s forecast includes dry and sunny weather for most of the day after a frosty start. There will be highs of 12 to 15 degrees, with temperatures dipping a little near south and southeast coasts. Tonight, it will be a dry and cold night with lowest temperatures of -1 to +2 degrees.

Wednesday

Tomorrow will see another stretch of fine weather, with top temperatures creeping up 14 to 16 degrees and plenty of sunshine.

Thursday

Thursday will start off dry and bright but will include a little more cloud than previous days, with some light patchy rain expected in southern coastal counties. This will have no impact on the temperature though, with highs of 14 to 17 degrees expected, mildest in the midlands and west. Thursday night will also not be as cold as previous nights, with lows of 5 to 8 degrees expected.

Friday

Friday will see a mix of sunny and cloudy spells across the island, with some rain expected in Munster and Leinster, where it will be cloudiest. Maximum temperatures 13 to 17 degrees are expected as we move to the weekend, but a ‘stiffening easterly breeze’ will take the edge off the warm weather in the east of the country. Rain will edge northwards on Friday night, but Ulster will stay mainly dry.

Weekend

The weekend’s forecast predicts cloudy weather over much of the country, with patchy rain in the south and east. It will be cooler than the week previous, with highs of 11 to 15 degrees.
