Sunday 25 June 2017 14:00

Rain

Rainfall amounts have been below normal across the country over the last week with just a few sharp showers scattered around the country. Much of Leinster and Munster received rainfall amounts less than 30% of the norm and between 40 and 70% of normal along Atlantic coasts and the northwest. The weather in the coming week will turn unsettled with well above normal rainfall expected.

Temperatures

The recent warm weather resulted in mean air temperatures being generally 2 to 3.5 degrees above normal. However, along coastal areas of Connacht and Ulster mean air temperatures were just around 0.5 - 1 degree above normal. The coming week will see normal or slightly cooler than normal mean air temperatures.

Sunshine

In the last week most of the country recorded above normal sunshine amounts with up to one and a half times of normal. However, over Connacht and Ulster sunshine amount were just half of normal. The coming week will see a fair deal of cloud resulting in less than normal sunshine amount country wide.

Drying Conditions

Drying conditions are currently good but will be generally poor next week.

Spraying

Spraying conditions will be mostly poor due to rain or wind.
