‘Wall to wall sunshine’ predicted for today and tomorrow
There will be “wall to wall sunshine” in the area today and tomorrow but things will not be as good over the weekend.
That’s the verdict of Louth Weather in their latest forecast for the next few days.
While the weekend is set to be good, it will be cooler with much more cloud cover than today and tomorrow.
The forecast in full is as follows: “BACKGROUND: An area of high pressure drifts east today and tomorrow bringing clear sunny conditions. From Saturday to Sunday an area of low pressure situated to the west of Ireland is the main influence, so conditions not as good over the weekend.
“THURSDAY: Wall to wall sunshine today, a rare event in recent times! Warmest day this year with temperatures up to 21°C. However as I indicated earlier in the week, this is no heatwave and if you are exposed to the easterly winds today (especially near the coast) it will feel more like 17°C.
“FRIDAY: Similar conditions .. clear skies, continuous sunshine, max 20°C but feeling cooler in the moderate to fresh SE winds.
“SATURDAY: More cloud about, but still plenty of sunshine. Mostly dry, but a risk of a few sheets breaking out especially later in the day. As winds veer more southerly in direction, it will not feel as cool in the wind. Max 21°C.
“SUNDAY: Some sunny breaks, but more cloud about and most areas will see some shower activity, especially through the middle part of the day. Fresh SW winds. Max 19°C.
“FURTHER OUTLOOK: It looks like an area of high pressure will build over Ireland from the SW next week. So little or no rain is expected. Winds will die down, but they will be from a northerly direction, so pleasant but not particularly warm. Impossible to say at this stage hire much sun we will get, but overall it’s looking decent enough.”
