Wednesday 18 October 2017 15:00


The past week has been wetter than average in the Northwest and also in parts of the Southwest but were closer to normal elsewhere with inland parts of South Leinster having just under half the normal rainfall for the time of year. The coming seven days will be very unsettled overall with well above average rainfall expected.


It has been mild for the past week with mean air temperatures around 2 to 2.8 degrees above average over much of the country with the exception Atlantic coastal fringes where mean air temperatures were around 1 to 1.8 degrees above normal. The coming week will still be a slightly milder than normal with mean air temperatures expected to be 1 to 1.5 degrees above average.


It has been duller than normal over the past week with 80-90% of normal sunshine amounts over much of the country but coastal counties of the northwest received less than half of the normal sunshine amounts. The coming week will be rather dull overall again with brief sunny spells at times.

Drying Conditions

Drying conditions will be generally poor for the coming week and may improve moderate on Sunday in the spells of heavy rain over the next few days variable but often poor over the coming week.


There will be limited opportunities for spraying overall due to rain or windy conditions.

Field Conditions

Soil moisture deficits are currently low for all soil types and poorly drained soils are saturated. There is no improvement expected in the soil conditions in the coming week due to heavy rainfall and unsettled conditions early next week.
