Long Range Weather Forecast For Ireland (1 June 2021)

TRENDS for the week of 1 to 7 June, 2021

-- Temperatures will average 1 to 2 deg above normal.
-- Rainfall will average near normal in parts of Connacht, the midlands and south central counties, 25 per cent above normal in west Munster, and as much as 50 per cent below normal in Ulster.
-- Sunshine will average about 75 per cent of normal values, to near normal.
-- Light winds will continue except for a few intervals of moderate southeast winds late Wednesday, becoming moderate southerly Thursday. 


will be partly cloudy to overcast and quite mild with a few light showers in the south and west, lows around 10 to 13 C.

WEDNESDAY will bring outbreaks of heavier rain moving in from the south, the south central counties northwest to Connacht will see 10-15 mm, with lesser amounts likely in most of Leinster and Ulster, in fact remaining dry in a few parts of east Ulster until late in the day. Some thunderstorms may be embedded in this band of rain, and highs will be around 19 C.

THURSDAY some further outbreaks of rain in the west and north mainly, with variable cloud and southerly winds at 30 to 50 km/hr elsewhere, lows near 12 C and highs 16 to 19 C.

FRIDAY and SATURDAY will bring another outbreak of showery rainfalls as a rather weak frontal system moves gradually northeast across the country, 2-5 mm rainfalls and highs both days near 19 C.

The further outlook calls for a few more showery episodes from time to time in a southwesterly flow that will be rather cloudy overall, but with some sunshine at times, and near normal temperatures for the period (highs 19-21 C) with rather mild overnight readings.
