HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS IN PLACE THIS WEEK AND WEEKEND BUT THE RISK OF COLD WEATHER WITH WINTRY SHOWERS NEXT WEEK
The weather will stay mostly dry over the week with sunshine at times but some cloud to at times, the highest risk of any rain and drizzle will be Friday into Saturday morning but the current outlook over the weekend is for mostly dry weather over the day light hours.
If looking for sunshine over the coming days the best days for sunshine across Ireland will be Wednesday and Thursday best of any sunshine will be across the south and east over the coming days.
The main reason for the settle spell of weather at the minutes is due to higher pressure which currently sits across Ireland and the UK keeping the weather mostly dry with a mixture of sunshine and cloud
This comes after a very disruptive start to March which came in with a Lion with falls of snow in places and strong winds storm.
At the moment models show that the weather will turn rather cold again from the 1st of April (early next week) with a cold northerly airflow filtering down across Ireland. With the colder air it will bring the risk of showers turning to hail, sleet and snow with some accumulations possible but this mainly over higher ground areas and mountains.
I will update on this later in the week when things are a little more clearer.
