3 Day Outlook
Tuesday night will be mainly dry and mild, with slackening southwesterly breezes; however, some drizzle will come to affect western and northern coasts by the end of the night. Mainly dry conditions will continue on Wednesday also, aside from drizzle affecting western and northern counties; later, a band of rain will arrive in the north and northwest, but will then clear southeastwards across the country on Wednesday night. It is likely that a lot of warm air will be carried across the country during the daytime on Wednesday by southwesterly breezes and, with the help of any sunshine, temperatures in excess of 20 degrees Celsius may be achieved in many southern and eastern parts.
By Thursday next, however, temperatures will drop sharply back to below normal values, and it will feel cool with fresh and gusty westerly winds bringing showers to all areas. And it appears that Friday will remain cool, breezy and showery in general also.
It is likely that it will remain changeable and often windy next weekend with further showers, and probably more widespread rain developing on Sunday.
