Saturday morning will start of dry with some sunshine but sunshine will tend to be hazy on Saturday. After midday Saturday into the afternoon cloud will increase over the northwest of Ireland with some showers there over the later afternoon and evening. elsewhere will be dry with some hazy sunshine.

Over the evening and night light rain and drizzle will spread in from the northwest moving southeastwards overnight into Sunday morning with light rain and drizzle.

On Sunday morning rain and drizzle will spread into the west moving across Ireland over the day, Some parts of Ulster will see some sunny spells over the day but with some cloud too. It will be cloudy over the day elsewhere. with rain clearing to the southeast late Sunday night into Monday morning.


Rain will clear to the southeast around dawn Monday morning with bright and sunny spells developing over the day but some cloudy around to. On Monday another area of high pressure will build across Ireland and the good news is this will stay in place over the whole week with the next weekend still unclear.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday there will be good sunshine across Ireland around 15C to 20C.


  • Monday to Friday will see good conditions for farmers with good opportunities for spraying.

  • With high pressure building in it looks like sunshine amounts will be generally good up until Friday 20th September

  • Rainfall amounts will be well below normal between Saturday and next Friday 20th September. Apart from rain later Saturday and Sunday rainfall amount will be very low. Rainfall amounts in the northwest and west Saturday into Sunday will range between 10mm to 20mm and around 2mm to 10mm elsewhere.

  • Temperature between Saturday and Friday 20th September will range between 15C to 20C around 1C to 2C above normal for the time of year.

  • Next week will see a lack of wind so drying conditions will not be great but sunshine will be good.

  • Farmer looking to do finally cuts and silage Monday to Friday will be good.


Current indications suggest next weekend there may be a break down in the high pressure with a more Atlantic influence on the weather with possible rain, details are still not clear on this with the possibility of high pressure staying in place next weekend.

I will have another update over the weekend.
