Ireland is set to experience a few days of sunshine before unsettled weather returns, according to Met Éireann. The weekend will see a significant change, with heavy rain and the possibility of flooding on Friday. However, there is some good news as Alan O’Reilly of Carlow Weather predicts that the country could soon enjoy summer-like conditions.
Today, mist and fog will clear early in the morning in Dublin, giving way to a bright and pleasant day with a mix of sunshine and scattered clouds. There may be a few isolated showers during the afternoon, but overall, it will remain mostly dry with daytime temperatures ranging from 18 to 21 degrees. Tonight will be mostly clear and dry with scattered cloud cover. It will be calm with the formation of mist and fog patches overnight, and temperatures will range from 9 to 11 degrees.
Tomorrow, mist and fog will clear, leading to a dry morning with plenty of sunshine. However, some cloud cover will develop later in the day, making the sunshine appear hazy. It will remain dry throughout the day, and temperatures will reach 19 to 22 degrees. While there is no specific forecast for Dublin, the national outlook indicates that Thursday evening will become rather cloudy, with outbreaks of light rain or drizzle in southwestern counties. Bands of rain will move northward across the country during the night, accompanied by moderate southerly winds. The night will be relatively mild, with temperatures ranging from 14 to 17 degrees.
Friday will start off wet, cloudy, and blustery as bands of rain move northward across the country from early morning. The rain will be followed by showers, some of which may be heavy and could lead to spot flooding. Despite the unsettled conditions, it will remain mild and humid, with highs of 17 to 21 degrees and a blustery southerly wind. Friday night will continue to be rather cloudy and wet, with widespread showers, some of which may be heavy. The showers will gradually ease, and clear or dry spells may develop in the south as brisk southeast winds turn westerly overnight. Lowest temperatures will range from 14 to 16 degrees.
Saturday will bring a mix of sunshine and showers across the country. The showers may be more persistent in the west, where moderate southwest winds will occasionally increase in strength. The highest temperatures of the day will range from 18 to 21 degrees. As Saturday night progresses, any remaining showers will gradually diminish, and long clear spells will develop, particularly in the east. It will remain mild overnight, with lowest temperatures ranging from 13 to 15 degrees and a moderate southwesterly breeze.
