Cooler weather conditions this week with showers continuing

The week ahead will feel cooler and remain unsettled but there will be some decent conditions at times too.

That’s the verdict of Louth Weather in their latest forecast for the week ahead.

While showery conditions will continue this week, it won’t be as wet as the past fortnight with Tuesday set to be the pick of the week.

Louth Weather said: “BACKGROUND: The trend of the past two weeks continues. Our weather will be dominated by The Atlantic, with the jetstream close by, bringing low pressure systems east towards Ireland. So overall it’s another unsettled week, however at this stage I don’t think we will see as much rainfall as in the last fortnight, with a few decent days in the mix. Cooler with temperatures down about three degrees on recent weeks.

“MONDAY: Dry this morning with some pleasant sunshine. Cloud will increase later, eventually producing showers (some heavy) through the afternoon and early evening. Moderate westerly winds. Cooler than of late at 16C°.

“TUESDAY: My pick of the week. Sunny morning. Cloudier during the afternoon with a few showers about, but I expect some areas will avoid these and stay totally dry. Moderate SW winds. Max 19°C.

“WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with showers though the afternoon.

“REST OF THE WEEK: The showery theme continues, with most of the showers during the afternoons and evenings. A low pressure system approaches Ireland on Friday and while the exact track etc are unclear at this stage, I expect it to be more unsettled Friday and Saturday, with more frequent and heavier showers and windier too.”
