The past week has been drier than normal with the southern half of the country receiving less than half of normal rainfall amount and the north received around 80-100% of normal. However, the rainfall amounts for the coming week will be well above average as several frontal rain bands and/or low pressure systems track close to or across Ireland.


The first half of the month of September been cooler than normal with mean temperatures about 1.5 degrees below average. Mean temperatures for the week ahead are expected to be around average for late September.


The bulk of the country has seen sunshine amounts above normal over the past week. However, the coming week will be quite dull – especially across the south and west.

Drying Conditions

Drying conditions will be poor with the passage of frontal systems and but will be good some of the time away from the rain systems.


There will be limited opportunities for spraying due to rain and/or windy conditions in the next few days but moderate spraying condition are expected possibly from Sunday to Tuesday.

Field Conditions

Soil moisture deficits are low at the moment and poorly drained soils are likely to be saturated. Soil moisture deficits are likely to deteriorate in the unsettled conditions in the next few days.
