Hey, everyone. Did anyone else wonder what the fog is going on this morning? It certainly came as a surprise to me when I left home at around 7:30 AM. Anyway, despite the fogged up start, the day should clear up nicely once all the fog has evaporated, and relatively mild temperatures are once again on the cards. However, the good weather will not last, and Thursday will mark the beginning of a rather wet and potentially stormy period that will likely last over the weekend, courtesy of a strong low pressure area currently developing over the North Atlantic.
Back to Wednesday, though. Following a chilly start, we can expect temperatures to rise to 14-16°C, before dropping back to 4-6°C overnight. It will stay dry throughout the day, and once the fog has cleared, we’re looking at a nice and sunny day. Cloud cover will move in towards nightfall, though, as the weather patterns begin to change. All the while, winds will remain calm to light, so it will feel quite pleasant.
Thursday will feel pretty different to the last few days before that. It will actually be warmer than Wednesday, with daytime highs of 16-18°C, and nighttime lows of 7-9°C. However, it will also be overcast, and significantly wetter than previous days. The day will actually start dry, but from lunchtime onwards, areas of rain will move in from the south. The odd thundery shower could very well be mixed in as well. Some of the bands will become stationary over west Cork overnight, before backtracking early on Friday.
Friday will see low temperatures throughout the day, accommodated by rainfall of varying intensity. We’re looking at daytime highs of 11-13°C, and nighttime lows of 6-7°C. As I said, rain will be pretty much non-stop, however most of it will be fairly light. Some stronger rainfalls are possible though, especially once that stationary front and rain belt I mentioned earlier starts backtracking. As for the weekend, well, let’s just say it’s a good time to catch up on Netflix.
