It's Warmish !

After seven years of cool and cold & wet summers we have soared to 30 deg C (86 deg F) those out door jobs that I had planned to do on dry days are cancelled. Instead I shall relax in the shade with a book and a glass of iced coffee.




We live in under the 30 indicator on the map, warm in summer and cold in winter


3 Day Outlook 
Headline: Very little change for the next few days. 

Wednesday night will be another dry and mainly clear night and it will be misty again. Temperatures overnight will be between 13 and 15 degrees and winds will remain light easterly. 

Thursday and Friday will continue dry, warm and sunny. Temperatures will be between 22 and 27 degrees and on Thursday it will be hottest in the west of the country while on Friday it is likely to be hottest in the east. Winds still light and from the east or southeast. Temperatures over night will fall to between 12 and 15 degrees. 

There is set to be a change from Friday on however. Winds will become northwesterly later on Friday and then Saturday will be a slightly cooler day in the northwest. 

Although a little cooler Saturday will still be dry. Winds will be from a northerly direction and there's a risk of cloudier conditions in the northwest coastal areas. Temperatures still well over twenty degrees in the east and southeast but falling back to the mid to late teens in parts of the west and the northwest. 

The further outlook through the weekend and in to the early days of next week is for continued dry and settled conditions but the hot weather will be replaced by a slightly cooler regime, still reaching well above 20 degrees on most days though, particularly in the east and south.

  1. Dear Mel,
    I needed a second glimpse - ah: the map shows Eire, not England! Berlin has a climate I love: very (Sibirian) cold in winter, often very hot summers. At the moment we have a heatwave too. (In Hamburg, were we lived for 6 years, the weather was British: lot of quick changes in a day between wind/rain/average light-grey in mellow circumstances under a dramatic clouded sky - after two years in Berlin I still don't leave the house without a tiny (mostly unused) umbrella.
    Discovered your Druid blog - interesting!

    1. Thank you for your comment Britta. I have been in Ireland since the 80's and love the whole island, would not want to live anywhere else.

  2. I do agree with you. All the 'dry day' jobs can wait - nobody wishes to spoil the chance to just sitting in the shade with a cool drink and a book - plenty of time for the other jobs. It is just so wonderful after all that wet last year isn't it.

    1. Oh last year was a near disaster for a lot of Irish farmers for they had to buy extra fodder from the UK and Europe which was very expensive.

  6. We have similar temperatures. Where I work it is roasting, but here at home we have the most amazing sea breeze which actually makes it perfect :) xxx

  7. Weather, whether or not, my parents said of it all. Do avoid the heat.

    1. I cannot avoid the heat but I can keep out of direct sunshine, which am doing & drinking lots of water. Unfortunately other than sun lotion which we use, I haven't any Beta Carotene to take because it assists with protecting the skin from burning and deepens the tan.
