Met Eireann is predicting a pretty horrible week of weather, so wrap up folks
Lads, we are in for a pretty bad week of weather, according to Met Eireann.
The national forecaster is predicting wind and rain for most of the week, with changing temperatures.
"Very windy for a time this morning with a band of heavy rain pushing quickly eastwards across the country. The rain will clear into the Irish Sea by lunchtime with sunny spells and well-scattered showers following from the west. Strong to gale force southerly winds will veer west to southwest by afternoon and moderate. Maximum temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees."
The forecast continues:
"Tuesday will be a damp and windy day with scattered outbreaks of rain accompanied by strong to gale force southwesterly winds. Very mild with highest afternoon temperatures ranging 11 to 14 degrees."
Patchy rain will clear eastwards on Tuesday night and the strong southwest breeze will begin to ease. Skies will clear later on and minimum temperatures will dip to between 2 and 5 degrees."
"A cold and mostly dry start on Wednesday with some bright spells developing. There is the threat of a spell of rain moving in across southern counties during the day but this remains uncertain. Highest temperatures of 6 to 9 degrees."
And as for the latter half of the week? Much of the same I'm afraid.
"Current indications suggest an area of low pressure will move close to Ireland on Thursday bringing some rain and the risk of strong winds. A chilly day is forecast with highest temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees."
"A transient ridge of high pressure looks set to lie over Ireland for Friday bringing mostly dry weather conditions and light or moderate breezes. Highest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees. Southerly breezes will freshen overnight and rain is expected to move in to affect western coastal counties."
Hopefully the weekend will be better, yeah?
