“Lots of dry weather” expected this week, Met Éireann says

Get in there!

So conditioned are we to receiving bad news in 2020 that any sort of positive development, however minor, suddenly becomes a cause for celebration.

And with that in mind, a run-of-the-mill weather forecast flagging fairly decent weather for the days ahead is something we’re going to go ahead and shout about.

According to Met Éireann, the week ahead promises “lots of dry weather overall” and though that forecast does come with the proviso that “a few showers are expected”, we’ll take it, all things considered.

From Tuesday right through until Friday, the general theme of the forecast is mainly dry with sunny spells, with showers set to be isolated rather than a regular occurrence.

That dry weather will bring with it mean air temperatures that will be “a little below average for October”, but highest temperatures will still be in the low-to-mid teens on most days this week, reaching as high as 15 degrees on Wednesday.

The mercury will drop to close to freezing on most nights, with frost and fog set to form on Thursday morning and again on Thursday night before another pleasant day is forecast on Friday.

Heading into the weekend however, there is currently “lots of uncertainty” over the forecast, with early estimates suggesting it will be “breezy and showery”.

Best enjoy the next few days while they last.
