EASTER WEEKEND LOOKING WARM WITH TEMPERATURES GETTING AS HIGH AS 20C
With a very poor start to next week and weather warning in place for rain and wind the current signal is for a improving trend especially over the second half of next week into the Easter Bank holiday weekend.
There is currently a Orange and Yellow Rainfall warning in place for parts of Ireland for Sunday night into Monday as a spell of heavy rain moves into southern areas over tonight and clearing out to the west northwest on Monday. A yellow weather warning for strong gusty winds is also in place for Monday with gust up to 100km/hr All warnings can be viewed HERE
Monday and early Tuesday will see a spell of Heavy rain but over the second half of Tuesday we will then see a improving trend across Ireland with some Sunny and clear spells spreading from the south.
Tuesday night will turn cold with the risk of temperatures dipping to around 0C with some frost in places and the risk of some misty conditions thickening into fog with a possible warning for fog that could be issued.
Wednesday and Thursday looks set to be dry day with some nice sunny spells and temperatures rising into the mid teen to around 14C to 15C in south to southeast breeze, some parts of the south and east will be a little cooler due to the breeze along coastal areas.
On Friday a area of high pressure over Scandinavia will extend into western Europe over Ireland and the UK known as a Scandinavian high leading to very what looks like very nice weather at present with some nice Sunshine on both Friday, Saturday and Sunday and possibly Monday too where temperatures will rise to around 18C to 20C.
Beyond Easter Monday its impossible to say what will happen but it could turn a little unsettled again with some rain and possibly seen a similar pattern to what we are seen this weekend. Over the week i will know more on what will happen beyond Easter Monday.
