Good Weather Forecast For The Bank Holiday Weekend
However, a winter 'vortex' is en route...
We are delighted to inform you that there is yet another reason to enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend, as Met Éireann has predicted it will be mild and dry.
Today there will be sunny spells with some drizzle and fog, with highest temperatures from 12 to 15 degrees.
However get stuck into the mild weather when you can, as frosty temperatures are coming next week.
Met Éireann said a cold front is forecast for Tuesday, introducing a much colder air mass with winds backing northerly. Expect some ground frost in rural areas and some fog patches on Tuesday night.
The 'cold' is coming. A pattern change as we shift months bringing below normal temperatures later next week, linked to a split Polar Vortex pic.twitter.com/SgPlb7iLiG— MetDesk (@metdesk) October 27, 2016
A polar vortex is an upper level low-pressure area, which lies near the Earth's pole. This typically brings freezing cold weather. Great.
The weather will remain mild for the weekend with temperatures above 10 degrees and rising. Temperatures on Saturday will be between a toasty 11 - 12 degrees.
We gotta take what we can get, right?
Bank Holiday Monday will be mostly dry and mild with some patches of rain. Temperatures will be between 12 to 15 degrees with moderate easterly winds.
So hopefully we won't need brollies for the weekend - fingers crossed!
