Dublin is set to experience another weekend of wet and dreary weather, but there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. According to Met Eireann, the weather is expected to take a turn for the better from Monday, with drier conditions and even some sunshine in the forecast. Tuesday is expected to follow suit, potentially signaling an end to the recent spell of appalling weather. However, before we can enjoy these improvements, heavy downpours of rain and overcast skies are predicted for the weekend.
Met Eireann’s forecast for Friday suggests that there may be some brighter spells early on in the east, but overall, it will be a dull and cloudy day with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle gradually spreading eastwards throughout the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be cooler than average, ranging between 16 and 18 degrees Celsius. Winds will be mostly moderate westerly overland.
Moving into Friday night, the weather will remain wet and misty with further outbreaks of rain and drizzle, and some heavy bursts are expected, particularly later in the night. It will be mild and humid, with temperatures dropping to lows of 12 to 14 degrees Celsius. Southwest breezes will be light to moderate, although it will be slightly breezier along the coasts.
Saturday will continue the trend of dull and wet weather, with ongoing outbreaks of rain, at times heavy, especially early in the day. It will remain humid, with temperatures reaching highs of 18 or 19 degrees Celsius. Southwest to west winds will be mostly light to moderate in strength.
As we head into Saturday night, further outbreaks of rain are anticipated, and heavy falls are possible. The night will be mild, humid, and rather misty, with temperatures ranging between 12 and 15 degrees Celsius. Winds will mainly be from the north to west, mostly light to moderate, but slightly fresher near the coasts.
The low cloud and rain will persist into Sunday morning, with the potential for heavy falls once again. However, brighter skies will gradually develop, although scattered heavy showers will follow into the afternoon and early evening before becoming less frequent. The highest temperatures for the day will range from 17 to 21 degrees Celsius, with mostly moderate north to northwest winds.
Looking ahead to Monday, there will be a good deal of dry weather with sunny spells and only a few scattered showers. However, some of these showers may become heavy later in the day, particularly across the south and east. Temperatures will range from 15 to 20 degrees Celsius, with light northwesterly breezes.
Tuesday is expected to be another mostly dry day, with sunny spells and scattered showers that may become heavier later on. Temperatures will range from 16 to 19 degrees Celsius, with mostly light westerly breezes.
In conclusion, Dublin residents can look forward to a break from the wet and miserable weather from Monday onwards, with drier conditions and even some sunshine in the forecast. Although the weekend may bring heavy downpours and overcast skies, there is hope on the horizon for brighter and more pleasant days ahead.
