Long Range Weather Forecast For Ireland (22 August 2021)


TRENDS for the week of 22 to 28 Aug 2021 --

-- Temperatures will average 2-3 deg above normal values.

-- Rainfall will be slight, in most places near zero amounts.

-- Sunshine will improve to near normal to 25 per cent above normal values.

-- Very light winds are expected, with a slight easterly developing mid-week.


TONIGHT will remain partly cloudy, somewhat misty in places, lows 8 to 11 C.

MONDAY will see any low cloud or mist dissipating to be followed by generally sunny skies except for some coastal low cloud in a few spots, warmer with highs 22 to 24 C.

TUESDAY to the following WEEKEND is still looking very good with some sunshine each day and warm temperatures, slight sea breeze cooling otherwise highs 23 to 26 C, overnight lows in the 8 to 12 C range.

There is less emphasis on a northerly breakdown at this point, and just a slight interruption where more cloud and near average temperatures might intrude for a day or two after this week-long warm spell, followed possibly by a few more days of warmth then a slow transition to more typical autumnal weather with more cloud and lower temperatures, occasional rain (but this looks rather tentative and is delayed into the first full week of September).
