Met Eireann’s latest forecast is the summer update we’ve been waiting for

summer sun

Listen, we can cope with a few showers as long as we get a bit of summer sunshine in return!

Ireland is due to see a change in weather conditions next week according to Met Eireann’s monthly forecast.

A band of high pressure will finally grace the shores of Ireland again, and at this point, we don’t even care if it’s just for a few days.

The rain, grey skies, and humid conditions have been less than alright for the months of July and August so far, but there are some dryer days coming.

Met Eireann’s monthly forecast says: “Conditions in week 1 will be more settled than in recent days, especially during the first half of the week, with high pressure building for a time to the north of the country.

“Lower pressure will however start to return later. Overall, winds will be relatively light with variable direction.

“Temperatures will be above average for mid-August, while rainfall amounts will be below average, particularly in the west and northwest.”

Carlow Weather’s Alan O’Reilly took to Twitter to back this up by showing some ‘hope’ that summer weather is on the way.

He said: “Latest charts show just the odd shower up to Friday then another system moves through with some heavy rain possible but the good news is the weekend looks better after that clears though with just some showers.

“Also end of model run 10 days away which is very unreliable & huge pinch of salt required. But it shows high pressure possibly moving up towards us.”

He added: “The models have shown this on a few occasions over the last month and it hasn’t happened yet but if you need some hope this is it!”

So get ready for another relatively brief bout of summer sun and we’ll deal with the return of rain at a later date.
