Long Range Weather Forecast For Ireland (10 June 2021)

TRENDS for the week of 10 to 16 June 2021 --

-- Temperatures will range from 1 deg above normal in the west, to 3 deg above in the east. In all regions, nights will average more above normal than days although the difference will be slight.
-- Rainfalls will average only 25 to 50 per cent of normal in the west, and zero to 25 per cent in the east. A significant amount of that will come near the end of the weekly interval.
-- Sunshine will average only 50 per cent of normal in the west, to 75 per cent in the east, and some coastal locations could see as little as 25 per cent.


will become overcast with a few outbreaks of light rain, lows 13 to 17 C.

FRIDAY will be partly to mostly cloudy, breezy, and perhaps a degree or two cooler in some parts of the north in particular, as a very weak front moves in, with scattered outbreaks of light rain. Highs 17 to 21 C.

SATURDAY will be warmer again with perhaps a bit more sunshine in all areas, although cloud will be widespread to start the day. Lows 13 to 17 C and highs 19 to 24 C.

SUNDAY will be partly cloudy, with perhaps less of the humidity without much change in temperature, lows 12 to 16 and highs 18 to 25 C.

MONDAY will become partly sunny with lower humidity and somewhat cooler temperatures, lows 12 to 14 C and highs 18 to 22 C.

TUESDAY will feature increasing cloud and highs near 22 C.

From late Tuesday to about Thursday of next week, cooler air will move in and highs on Wednesday and Thursday may be back down into the teens (15-19 C) with nights a few degrees cooler too. Some showers are likely, with a slight chance of heavier rainfall developing.

The pattern from then on appears rather unsettled and near average for temperatures, if perhaps a bit cool in the daytime hours, compensated by mild nights to reach near average overall.
