Ireland Set to Experience Indian Summer with Sizzling Temperatures
Although summer is officially over, don’t put away that sunscreen just yet as Ireland is set to bask in a scorcher. Met Eireann has forecasted sizzling temperatures with high pressure dominating the country confirming the arrival of an “Indian Summer” which is the term used to describe a period of unseasonably warm and dry weather during the autumn. The country will enjoy settled conditions starting next week.
Today, Dubliners will wake up to a breezy and wet morning before the rain and drizzle become patchy this afternoon. Scatterer showers will move in from the west this evening and daytime temperatures will be around 18 or 19 degrees. Tonight will be mostly cloudy with a few showers. Nighttime temperatures will be 12 or 13 degrees.
Tomorrow will be rather cloudy overall with scattered showers, some of which will turn heavy. Early mist and fog patches will lift by the afternoon and some occasional sunny breaks may develop. Daytime temperatures will be around 17 or 18 degrees.
There is no further forecast for Dublin but here’s what Met Eireann’s national outlook says:
Friday night “Showers will die out early on Friday night, and it will become mostly dry with clear spells. Areas of mist and fog will form overnight. Lowest temperatures of 9 to 13 degrees with light easterly or variable breezes.
Saturday “Saturday will start out rather dull with low cloud, mist and fog in many areas, and perhaps the odd patch of drizzle. The cloud will gradually break up into sunny spells by the afternoon to give a dry day for most, though the odd shower can’t be ruled out. Highest temperatures of 19 to 22 degrees. Light easterly or variable breezes.
Saturday night “Largely dry with variable cloud cover and clear spells. Mist and fog patches forming towards dawn. Lowest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees in light southerly or variable breezes.
Sunday “Any patchy low cloud, mist and fog at first on Sunday, will soon clear to a mix of cloud and spells of hazy sunshine. It will be somewhat cloudier in parts of the west and northwest with occasional light rain or drizzle. Top temperatures of 18 to 22 degrees, coolest in the coastal fringes of the west and northwest, in a light to moderate southwest breeze, fresh near western and northwestern coasts.
Sunday night “Thicker cloud with patchy light rain and drizzle will sink southeastwards over the country on Sunday night. Lows of 11 to 14 degrees in mainly light westerly or variable breezes.
Monday “Monday looks set to bring a mix of cloud and hazy sunshine with occasional light rain and drizzle. Highest temperatures 16 to 21 degrees, warmest in the south and east in a light westerly breeze.”
