Anailís Aimsire don Fheirmeoireacht

Sunday 18 February 2018 16:00


Precipitation for the past week has been above normal for almost all of the country, although below normal in the east and northeast. Along the west coast rainfall was more than twice normal. The range was from less than 10 mm in the east to more than 55 mm along the west coast. The coming week looks set to be dry with less than 10% of the usual rain expected for all areas.


The past week was noticeably cold, with mean air temperatures between 1 and 2 degrees below average. Mean soil temperatures have also fallen in the past week with soil temperatures up to one degree below average for the time of year. In marked contrast, the coming week is expected to see a rise in temperatures, with mean air temperatures one degree above average generally. It is, however, looking like getting cold by the end of the week.


The past week has been sunnier than normal everywhere, with near normal conditions over Connacht but nearly twice the normal sunshine in the southeast. The coming week is expected to have near average sunshine duration.

Drying Conditions

There will be good drying conditions the week ahead but until Monday it will be cloudy and damp at times resulting in poorer drying conditions.


Opportunities for spraying will be good overall as winds will be mostly light but there will be damp and drizzle conditions until Monday with poor spraying conditions.

Field Conditions

Poorly drained soils are currently saturated but well drained and moderately drained soils have somewhat improved in the last week and will further improve in the coming week.
