MAY WILL FINISH WITH HIGH PRESSURE IN CHARGE AND REMAINING WARM INTO JUNE
For the rest of May high pressure will be the mean features in the weather forecast with mainly dry conditions and warmer after next Tuesday. Over the rest of this week into Saturday night the weather will remain the dry and sunny with temperatures average for May and above to at times in some parts of the country.
On Saturday night, Sunday and Monday a weather front will move in from the west over Ireland leading to wet conditions with heavier bursts of rain in the northwest, west and southwest of Ireland.
Some part of the south, southeast and east of Ireland may well stay dry over these three days due to a area of High pressure which is sitting over Scandinavia helping stall this front progressing any further eastwards.
Into next week then after Monday models show dry conditions again with only some rainfall. Moving into the weekend it looks as it will turn warmer with temperatures across parts of Ireland possibly getting up into the low twenties with high pressure in charge.
The latest GFS model run for the last few days of May and start of June shows a very strong area of high pressure sitting over Ireland which would bring warmer temperatures for the bank holiday weekend along with a good deal of sunshine.
The latest ECMWF Anomaly chart also shows high pressure over Ireland and the UK for the end of this month and start of June something I talked about over a week ago when I started to see hints this may happen.
With this it doesn't mean we will see totally dry conditions all the time but if that high pressure was to build and sit over the country for the bank hoilday it would be rather pleasant out.
I will continue to keep a eye on the models over the coming days and update again if I have anymore information to share.
