Dublin to Experience Glorious Sunshine before Return of Wet Weather
After enduring weeks of miserable, soaking wet weather, residents of Dublin can finally look forward to a much-needed break. Met Eireann, Ireland’s national meteorological service, has predicted that the capital will bask in glorious sunshine starting from Monday. However, this dry spell is expected to be short-lived, as unsettled wet weather is set to return on Wednesday. In the meantime, the upcoming weekend is predicted to be a washout, with heavy downpours of rain expected on both Saturday and Sunday.
With these weather conditions in mind, it might be wise to swap a Sunday morning hike for a trip to the cinema to catch the latest films such as Barbie or Oppenheimer. It’s important to make the most of the sunshine while it lasts.
Met Eireann’s forecast for the coming days is as follows:
Today, expect a dull, wet, and misty day with outbreaks of rain. Temperatures will reach highs of 17 to 19 degrees Celsius, with mostly light southwesterly winds. Tonight, it will remain mild, cloudy, and damp, with further outbreaks of rain. Temperatures will not fall below 14 or 15 degrees Celsius. Winds will be mostly light and variable inland, but fresher near the coasts.
Tomorrow, the weather will remain cloudy and wet, with showery outbreaks of rain. Temperatures will reach highs of 15 or 16 degrees Celsius, with mostly moderate northerly winds developing, becoming fresher near the coasts. Tomorrow night, the rain will clear the south and east early on, leaving most areas dry with a mix of cloud and clear spells. However, a few showers may still occur. Lowest temperatures will range from 9 to 13 degrees Celsius, with light to moderate north to northwest breezes.
On Monday, expect sunny spells and scattered light showers, with plenty of dry intervals. Some of the showers may turn heavy in the south and southeast, but they will become isolated in the evening. Highest temperatures will range from 15 degrees in the northwest to 20 degrees in the south and southeast, all in light to moderate northwest breezes. Monday night will be dry for most, with long clear spells and just a few passing light showers. Lowest temperatures will range from 7 to 11 degrees Celsius, with mostly light northwesterly breezes.
Tuesday will be mostly dry with sunny spells initially, but cloud and scattered light showers will extend from the west through the morning. The driest conditions will generally be in the south. In the afternoon and evening, thicker cloud accompanied by outbreaks of rain and drizzle will push in from the west. Highest temperatures will range from 16 to 19 degrees Celsius, with light to moderate west to northwest breezes.
Wednesday’s forecast remains uncertain, but indications suggest that it will be wet and breezy, with widespread rain and increasing southwesterly winds. The rain may be heavy at times, potentially leading to spot flooding. However, a clearance to showers is expected to follow from the northwest later in the day. Highest temperatures will range from 17 to 19 degrees Celsius.
Looking ahead to Thursday, it will be breezy at times, with a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers.
In conclusion, Dublin residents can look forward to a brief respite from the wet weather as sunshine graces the city on Monday. However, it is important to make the most of this break, as more unsettled conditions are expected to return on Wednesday. Stay prepared and adjust your plans accordingly to make the most of the dry intervals.
