Weather for haymaking next week says Met Eireann
Early next week should afford good opportunities for haymaking, Met Eireann has said in its latest farming forecast.
Temperatures on Saturday and Sunday are expected to climb into the mid-20s, with strong sunshine and little chance of rain. Drying will be good over the weekend and next week, as little or no rain is forecast and warm sunshine is expected.
Met Eireann forecaster Liz Walsh said that while it was unknown how far north the good weather would extend, temperatures in most places will be “above average.”
It comes as the past week was much wetter than normal, with more than twice the average rainfall generally, and up to 3 times the norm in south Leinster.
However, don’t whip out the sunglasses just yet, however, as heavy cloud will linger for the next two days.
According to Met Éireann, today will be humid and cloudy, with scattered showers breaking out this evening. Temperatures will range between 17 and 20 degrees, with light winds blowing across the country.
Speaking on Morning Ireland, Ms Walsh added that some areas of the country would experience “hazy sunshine”, with “low pressure coming in from the south.”
Thursday will see much of the same, with stronger winds in coastal counties. Temperatures are not expected to exceed 18 degrees.
