Still no sign of proper summer weather on the horizon for the next two weeks
There’s still no sign of proper summer weather on the horizon for the next fortnight at least with another “messy week ahead” on the local weather front.
That’s the verdict of Louth Weather in their latest forecast for the next seven days.
While it will be drier this week, with some showers to contend with, there will be no major sun to enjoy in the next few days.
The latest forecast reads as follows: “BACKGROUND: Another messy week ahead with slow-moving areas of low pressure close to Ireland. These will bring showery weather with them and while there’s always a risk of more organized rain (depending on the exact location of the low centre), I expect quite a lot of dry weather this week. When I use the word “messy”, it generally means the weather is harder to forecast so please keep an eye on my daily updates.
MONDAY: A convective day with showers, some of these heavy with the risk of hail and thunder. Large cumulus clouds are already visible bubbling up, one particularly impressive line from Swords to Navan easily visible from all parts of Louth. The showers today are drifting slowly west to north west. They need heat to form and as The Irish Sea is still relatively cold, coastal areas will get the best weather today. Light to moderate northerly winds. Max 16°C.
“TUESDAY: A mostly cloudy day but many areas staying totally dry. Moderate to fresh northerly winds. Max 15°C.
“WEDNESDAY: Some light rain likely to start the day but overall cloudy and dry. Moderate to fresh northerly winds. Max 16°C.
“THURSDAY: Similar to Wednesday.
“FRIDAY: Some showers, most likely during the afternoon. Moderate southerly winds. Max 15°C.
“THE WEEKEND: A mix of sunny spells and showers, the best of the sun being in the mornings and evenings. Max 16°C.
“FURTHER OUTLOOK: Bearing in mind what I always say about the accuracy of any forecast in Ireland over five days, I’m not seeing anything that would suggest any proper spell of summer weather over the next two weeks or so.”
