WATERFORD WEATHER: Some good news on horizon to put a Spring in our step
We may not reach the sizzling temperature highs Waterford basked in on Saturday, but there is some good news on the horizon. Met Éireann said we can look forward to a dry and sunny week ahead as we enter into another week of Covid-19 isolation.
After yesterday’s cloudy and cooler conditions, the national forecaster said today will be dry and sunny “with any patchy cloud in the south and east clearing during the morning”.
Met Éireann added: “It will be mildest in the west and south with highest temperatures of 12 to 14 or 15 degrees, but cool in the east as temperatures reach just 8 to 11 degrees. Light to moderate east to northeast breezes will be fresher for a time in the south.”
Tomorrow will be another dry and sunny day with light south to southeast breezes and highest temperatures of 12 to 14 degrees in most places.
It’s pretty much the same story for Wednesday, although it will be a little milder than previous days, and again cooler in southern and eastern coastal counties.
Thursday will be dry and mainly sunny at first, but cloud will thicken along the south coast during the afternoon with rain arriving by evening.
Met Éireann said: “Highest temperatures of 14 to 17 degrees with light to moderate east to northeast winds. The rain will slowly move northwards on Thursday evening and night, becoming patchier as it progresses. Lowest temperatures of 6 to 8 degrees across the south of the country and 3 to 5 degrees elsewhere under clearer spells.
On Friday, cloud and patchy outbreaks of rain will continue moving northwards, with drier and brighter conditions following from the south and highest temperatures of up to 17 degrees.
Met Éireann said the early outlook for next weekend is that it will turn more unsettled, with rain at times.
