Forecast Issued April 28th 2012
Cool Weekend - wet Sunday evening...
Picture by LaoisWeather
SATURDAY: After an overcast start with local showers, sunny spells will develop. Feeling cool though in a fresh NE wind. Highest temperatures will reach 9c to 12c. OVERNIGHT: Feeling very cold as temperatures drop to between 0c and 3c under clear skies in a fresh and gusty NE wind. Some grass frost is likely.
SUNDAY: A fine cold crisp start to the day in a fresh and gusty E to NE wind, however cloud will increase from the SE in the early afternoon with rain developing mid-afternoon. Highest temperatures will range from 8c to 11c. The rain will become heavy for a time in the evening, but OVERNIGHT the rain will become lighter and more patchy as it clears northwestwards. The wind will also moderate, backing SE for a time before settling into a NE direction once more. Lows will range from 3c to 6c.
MONDAY: Any early morning rain will clear to mostly dry conditions for the afternoon, perhaps a few showers in the east. Highs will range from 11c to 14c in moderate NE winds. Into the evening and OVERNIGHT, cloud will build over the south and southeast bringing scattered outbreaks of light rain or drizzle. Lows will range from 3c to 8c in light to moderate E to SE winds. Coolest in the west and north under mostly clear skies.
TUESDAY: Showers of light rain and drizzle in the morning over south eastern regions, but the other areas will remain mostly dry with some bright or sunny spells. Fresh easterly winds will become moderate during the day. Highs of 10c in the cloudier east to 14c or 15c in the west.
OUTLOOK: Apart from some showers in the east, it looks like remaining mostly dry throughout the week in rather cool E to NE winds. Temperatures will range from 10c to 15c each day, mildest in the west. The nights will be cool with lows between 2c and 5c generally, but the nights will become colder towards the end of the week, dropping below 0c at night so frosts will become an issue once more.
BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND THOUGHTS: Present thoughts suggest a cool weekend, especially in the east where showers will become widespread. Further west and into the SW it may remain dry and slightly milder. The nights will be cold and frosty.
