01 April 2015 22:11


Tonight rain and drizzle will be persistent for much of Ulster and northern parts of Connacht and Leinster. Elsewhere it will be patchier. Lowest temperatures of 4 to 6 degrees in the north and northeast but 6 to 8 degrees elsewhere. Moderate to fresh westerly winds will decrease light variable by morning.


Tomorrow, Thursday will be mostly cloudy with further outbreaks of rain or drizzle. It will be cool in the north and parts of the east coast with top temperature of just 7 to 10 degrees in a southeasterly breeze. However, elsewhere it will be milder with top temperatures of 11 to 13 degrees in light to moderate southwesterly breeze.


The rain will be persistent and heavy in places for a time Thursday night and then will clear eastwards overnight. Lowest temperatures 4 to 7 degrees. Fresh southwesterly winds will veer west to northwest with the clearance.

Good Friday:
A bright, cool day with sunny spells. Some scattered showers over Ulster in the morning otherwise a dry day apart from isolated showers. Highest temperatures 9 to 11 degrees and good drying in the fresh northwesterly wind. Dry and clear Friday night with lowest temperatures 2 to 6 degrees and a slight ground frost.

Easter weekend:

A big improvement in the weather as high pressure builds up over Ireland blocking out the Atlantic rain and gales. Fresh northerly winds on Holy Saturday will become moderate southeasterly for Easter Sunday and a blocking high scenario is forecast to continue through Easter week. The weather will be dry and settled. Variable amounts of cloud will lead to some pleasant spring sunshine and at times mild with temperatures getting into the mid-teens. Still some night ground frosts possible but not severe with minimum air temperatures generally in the range zero to +5 degrees.
