Dry weather expected for St Patrick’s Day this Sunday
It’s expected to be mostly dry for St Patrick’s Day this Sunday.
That’s the verdict of Louth Weather in their latest forecast for the weekend.
There is likely to be rain on Saturday but for anyone planning to attend a parade or the St Patrick’s Day events in Dundalk on Sunday, the good news is it’s likely to be dry.
The forecast in full for the next few days is as follows:
Friday: “Mostly dry but cloudy. The best of any sunny spells should be in the morning. Strong westerly winds will ease as the day progresses. Cooler at 8°C.”
Saturday: “Late Friday night a low pressure system crosses directly over us. It won’t be particularly deep and the resulting shallow pressure gradient means it shouldn’t get too windy. However it does look like associated fronts will linger over us, with rain from about midnight Friday right through to Saturday afternoon. The finer details of Saturday’s weather are a forecasters nightmare! It looks like Louth will be be the dividing line between cold air to the north and much milder air to the south. We could see precipitation turn wintry on the northern flanks of the front, especially over higher ground. The band of rain will be the dividing line with a massive temperature difference of 3°C likely to the north but 11°C to the south, so any fluctuation in positioning north or south will make a massive difference to our weather. My best take on it is for rain in all areas Saturday morning, clearing in the afternoon with temperatures dropping sharply from the north. Dry Saturday night with frost forming.”
Sunday: “LÁ FHÉILE PÁDRAIG: Sunday will be a mostly dry day. A few showers about but some good sunny periods too. Fresh to strong NW winds. Max 8°C but feeling cooler in the wind, so wrap up well for the parades.”
