Long Range Weather Forecast For Ireland (31 August 2021)


TRENDS remain the same -- near normal temperatures and dry until mid-weekend, then some scattered rainfalls amounting to about half the normal weekly amounts. Not a lot of sunshine is expected, and winds will pick up gradually.


TONIGHT will be partly cloudy with lows around 6 to 10 C, some fog patches likely by morning.

WEDNESDAY to FRIDAY will continue dry and rather cloudy with a bit of sunshine in the mix each day, and highs 17 to 21 C. Overnight lows could fall off slightly to around 4 to 9 C.

The WEEKEND will see a gradual increase in wind speeds from the southwest, and as cloud streams in from the Atlantic, some showers at times, with the risk of a brief interval of heavier rain, but details are still somewhat out of focus, this could amount to a rather minor event. Temperatures will stay around 17 to 20 C daytime, 8 to 11 C for overnight lows.

The following week looks rather variable and temperatures will remain near seasonal norms. A few more months of this and we won't have a weather forum at all.
