Long Range Weather Forecast For Ireland (27 January 2022)

TRENDS remain similar, temperatures generally somewhat above normal, rainfall still below average but starting to pick up a bit at a time, winds returning to a more average range too. Probably enough sunshine to reach normal amounts or possibly a bit higher.

TODAY will become partly cloudy with longer sunny intervals in the west and south. Winds will stay rather moderate west to northwest, dropping off to calm this evening. Any slight rainfalls with the overnight front have pretty much come and gone. Highs 8 to 10 C.

TONIGHT will be partly cloudy to clear with scattered light frosts, lows -1 to +3 C.

FRIDAY will become more overcast by late morning, rather mild in a moderate southwest wind. Highs 10 to 12 C.

SATURDAY will start out with some showers and blustery winds in the north, having less impact further south, as a weak front moves through, followed by partial clearing. Winds west to northwest 40-70 km/hr in some parts of the north. Lows 4 to 7 C and highs 8 to 10 C.

SUNDAY will bring variable amounts of cloud and some outbreaks of light rain, as another fast-moving but weak frontal disturbance tracks through the north around mid-afternoon. Lows near 2 C and highs near 9 C.

MONDAY will become milder again with partly cloudy skies and highs 9 to 12 C.

TUESDAY will be mild with occasional light rain, highs 12 to 15 C.

WEDNESDAY will also be mild with southwest winds, leading to an interval of rain lasting into early Thursday, about 5-10 mm likely with this, and temperatures steady 10 to 12 C.

After that front passes, colder weather will set in gradually and temperatures will drop slowly for several days, reaching values somewhat below average by the second week of February. The pattern will likely be rather variable with a few milder days from time to time as well as the colder intervals, and it may be rather windy at times too.
