The latest bizarre weather pattern could last most of the week and will be brought to our shores by the remnants of a Tropical Storm called Phillippe which is on its way north from the south-west Atlantic.
RTE is reporting that this will bring 100mm of rain to County Donegal this week alone!!!
But it will also bring mild warm air with temperatures of up to 18c for the North West during the day – and some warm night time heat.
It’s expected to be up 13C at night time.
“It won’t be all bad,” said a Met Eireann spokesperson.
“There will be some pleasant spells between the rain.”
The best of the weather from this period of warmth will be seen in the far south east of Ireland, says irishweatheronline.com.
Continued damp to wet and humid, very mild across west and north (17-19 C) and somewhat more settled in south and east (except for foggy south coast) with highs 19-21, the report.
RTE says the 100mm of rain will be dumped over the north west between now and the end of the week.
Barmy weather may continue after next weekend however.
Irishweatheronline says of a week’s time: “There are still indications of a trend to colder weather as high pressure in the Atlantic continues a trend westward and the storm track is cut off once Philippe’s remnant low reaches Iceland late this week, then a more northwesterly flow pattern could develop with alternating periods of cool, dry weather and moist spells with seasonable mid-teens high temperatures.”Tags:
