The rest of the month sees 5 to 10c. Nights will be as low as minus 2c in County Sligo around Tubbercurry and Collooney. Sligo town nearer to 3c at night. There is a risk of some cold weather in early December but the weather stays mild and windy up to Christmas with some storms nearby. Winds will be BELOW normal. Rain will be normal and sun slightly above. Frost nights around average too but more than last year. We are now into true Winter territory as temperatures sink at night followed by cool daytime values relative to the time of year. However as we end November Ireland will experience weather that is slightly cooler overall than what would normally be the case. Day values will only be 5 or 6c but night time values will be in the low single figures of 1 or 2c. Heavy rainfall is likely at times and this Thursday with 30mm possible in some places in the Northwest and some sleet and hail and hill snow. Temperatures will not be warm over the coming weeks with only 7 to 13c expected. Next weekend will be slightly better but also showery with the temperatures around 10 to 11c. October brought lots of dry and sunny weather to Sligo with temperatures of 12 to 15c. There was some days that were totally sunny especially in the West. Ireland is sure in for a colder November in 2016. The weather will be a little milder as we head into early December. March was a colder month than those just gone. However it was mainly the East and North that temperatures were cold. However Western parts will say on the mild side of normal for the month. Temperatures this week will be in the range 7 to 10c. There is also a risk of snow at times especially in the East. December has averaged over 6c and was windy. January has averaged over 7c and has been wet and dull. Average temperatures for February are 4.5 to 5c This February will be around 4c. Average rainfall for February is 70 to 90mm. This February will see 60mm. Average sunshine is 2.5 to 3 hours a day. This February will see around this amount. Milder weather as the month goes on. The start of the month will be cold however. The dry weather will be a relief for the West and North. These parts of Ireland have seen lots of rainfall this Winter. The East has fared much better this Winter. .

Winter 2011/12

Conflicting views on this but the general consensus is that it will be another cold season like the past 2 years. It looks like there will be a lot of dry weather and some frosts but also some wet and windy spells also. Snowfall is quite rare in Ireland so people are getting very excited about another month or 2 of snow like last year but this is very unusual. Maybe a few snowy episodes but temperatures like last year are rare indeed.

Live Weather Ireland


A very changeable week in store for Ireland with temperatures starting off mild
or even warm in a few spots and then falling back as the week goes on. Monday
and Tuesday will be dry except on the West coast. Wednesday and Thursday see
up to 30mm of rain and Friday sees High Pressure move in from the Northwest
Temperatures 19c at the start of the week down to 13c by Friday.


So far September has turned out to be a really wet month with rainfall
up to 4 times the monthly average in many parts of the country
and flooding becoming a problem once more after quite a dry year.
Rainfall has passed the 100mm mark in many parts of Ireland already
and the long term forecast has a continuation of this theme with
wet and windy days and yet more showers. There may be some 
brief respites at times but overall September looks like it will be 
one of the wetter ones on record. Rainfall Latest


Despite all of the wet weather this month it still has been very mild or even
warm for early September. Temperatures are running 1.5 to 2.5c above normal
in all parts of Ireland after 2 weeks of the month. It now looks like we are in for a cooler 
period according to the medium range models and temperatures will drop back by 
several degrees as a Northerly blast comes in from Friday onwards especially.
However this will be quite a shortlived cold spell and there should be a return 
to slightly milder conditions for the end of the month though it will still be wet.
The cooler weather should bring some slightly drier weather for a few days
but the weather will become wet with the onset of Westerly winds for the end of

    Rainfall Updates-



    JANUARY 2010 was the coldest January in Ireland for 25 years with widepread snow and ice. Temperatures of below MINUS 10C were experienced widely on 3 nights in a row around the 8th to 10th of January. Again rainfall was below normal continuing the dry Winter trend. Temperatures were up to 2c BELOW normal at most stations and an amateur weather station in Carlow recorded a minimum temperature of MINUS 17.7C. Winds were not a problem this January unlike previous years but snow and ice made roads hazardous and damaged surfaces widely.

    FEBRUARY 2010 has so far been extremely quiet if a little cold at night. The Rainfall has remained below normal with a lot of dry periods. The 2nd half of the month promises more in the way of rain and showers and this pattern looks set to continue into MARCH

    The forecast for 2010 is currently being worked on but it looks for all intents and purposes like being a wet Spring with cool weather and some high rainfall totals at times. There will be some dry and pleasant spells too but not as dry as the Winter has been at all

    Summer 2010 early indications are for a mixed bag but not as wet as previous years and there should be at least one warm dry month if current patterns continue

    Autumn 2010 will be dry at first then stormy later

    Winter 2010 not as cold as this year but short cold spells

    After some quiet and relatively dry days with just the odd spell of rain from time to time the pattern that would appear to be emmerging is for more cold weather from the 8th Feb. The 10 day Weather Forecast sees cold dry weather dominating. The Irish 30 Day Weather Forecast brings a significant drop in temperatures and sees an increased chance of Snow Showers and this will be further compounded by the Cold Weather that will be in evidence as Temperatures will be relatively low, at 3 to 6c by day, continuing on the cold Winter weather we have had this year. Wintry Showers will become more of a risk toward the end of the week as mild weather in polar regionssends cold arctic air down over Europe


    The temperatures over the coming days will gradually drop into low single figures and a renewed big freeze is too early to say but most of the warm air will be in polar regions and not over Ireland just like during the cold spell of Dec/Jan. In saying that there is an area of High Pressure that is trying to make inroads over Ireland and if this is the case we would be left with a dry frosty outlook Winter Forecast considering the origins of the Pressure

    Summer 2010 Updates-

    The weather will remain quite mild for the first week of February but as the month goes on there is a slight chance that things will again turn more wintry mid-month. Quite wet and windy at times for the first week in Ireland but as the Low Pressure systems move South over the country this will bring colder air for next week. How cold it is too early to say but there may be some wintry showers so an odd flurry of snow will not be out of the question going on what we have seen nationwide so far this Winter

    After the longest cold spell for 30 years it has now finished and a rapid thaw will take place starting monday. Night temperatures on Sunday are around zero much higher than previous nights and with outbreaks of rain making their way in from the Atlantic for Tuesday the cold spell is really about to come to a sudden end. Over 3 weeks of snow and ice have crippled Ireland leaving people housebound and also inconveniencing people during the Christmas period. Although it was one of the longest cold spells of recent times there was no big snow as there was in 1982 but it did snow on a number of occasions and the aver

    Here in Ireland the mercury has dipped to minus 14c already in Balltinglass and minus 12c near Ebbyvale. Dublin will also see temperatures of near minus 10c while Sligo shivers in its coldest of the Winter temperatures of minus 7c.

    The freezing weather looks set to continue well into January until midmonth at least in Ireland with the temperatures barely making it above freezing at all. This polar airmass is stretching down to the South of France, Northern Italy and Turkey and is going to be bringing a lot of snow to Britain too.

    A lot of cold and snowy weather has been evident in Ireland since the start of January with all parts of the country reporting ice and snow. There have been several severe weather warnings in place too since the start of the month and these will continue until at least the weekend. The is the risk of some fresh snow in some Western areas on Thursday before the risk moves to the entire Northern half of the country of scattered wintry showers. There is no sign of a big thaw yet and it may be the end of January before the snow is all gone. In some parts of the West snow has been lying since just after mid December. Usually Ireland does not get one set weather pattern for longer than 2 weeks. But the last 12 months have seen a lot of extremes and these are set to become more of a common event in Ireland in the coming years Finally the weather for the weekend looks dry and frosty and very cold

    Irelands long range forecast is seeing a lot of snow for the North and East in particular but harder frosts further South and West which will only make the Ice situation worse. There does not seem to be an end in this cold weather until at least the middle of January when the Atlantic weather fronts may at last bring in some slightly milder air. The average temperature for December was over 2 degrees below normal and it was the coldest December in many areas since 1995. 2009 was surely quite an extreme and eventful year weatherwise in all parts of Ireland as it was one of the wettest on record with Floods in July, August and November and cold months in February and December. The warmest weather occured during June especially in the Northwest where it was the sunniest June for over 50 years in Malin Head and the sunny theme was apparent in Sligo too until mid month. However this was the only real Summery weather of the season until September and October when there was below normal rainfall in nearly all parts of Ireland until the second half of October when the rainfall began. Temperatures for the whole year were slightly above average continuing the warming trend in Ireland of recent years. Howeever forecasts for Ireland say that this year may be one of the warmest yet!

    The big day itself is promising more in the way of rain or showers coming just at the end of this settled spell and will signal the start of a renewed period of unsettled weather for January.

    Rainfall totals for the month of November in Sligo reached a staggering 289mm. The normal rainfall expected for November is 130 to 150mm. Scientists have said that the rainfall totals for the Winter will increase in the West and North of Ireland and Indeed this seems to be the case. Especially in the 3rd quarter of the month totals seemed to accelerate though the SLigo Area also saw a lot of rain at the start of November with 32mm falling on the first day alone. There were 25wet days in Sligo during November much higher than the 19 day average. The only dry spell was in the last 2 days when there was a lot of frost and the min temp reached -2.4c in Collooney on 28th November. Overall the temperature was above normal by 1 degree celcius.

    December will see rainfall of 150 to 160mm which is slightly above the average. Quite and Dry will generally be the weather in the Sligo area but a cold spell in mid month may bring some of the Wintry stuff for a day andagain at the end some frost and wintry showers are likely. Therefore the temperature for December will again be 1degree above normal much the same as November has been. The first day of the month has already been registered as a wet day with 6.3mm already on the rain gauge at 1430pm.

    The next few days are promising to be mainly unsettled but there is less certainty now about the dry spell that was promised mid-month and this may not happen at all if the rain keeps swinging in from the West. The weekend will have rain at times but with temperatures of 9c it will be relatively mild for the time of year. Sunday is going to be quite windy as well.

    November 2009 Floods

    Flooding in the Winter is something that causes a lot of misery as the people in the West and South of Ireland will testify. The drying conditions are very poor at this time of year so even places like Galway will find it very difficult to get rid of all the surface water due to the "bowl" nature of the landscape there. John Eagleton said on the weather forecast that there has been 9 weeks of rainfall in just 3weeks this november. And there is still a lot more to come before the month is out. One would hope that December will bring a drier story and less misery for people because although this is not climate change on a grand scale it is leaving people without a home which is what the worst results of global warming is forecast to do

    November Weather Forecast

    NOVEMBER looks like it will be bringing high rainfall figures to all parts of Ireland and also some quite windy conditions especially to the North and West. Temperatures will be around the seasonal average but the unpleasant nature of the weather will make it seem a lot colder. Temperatures for November in Sligo are normally around 10c and countrywide in Ireland around 10 to 13c. Rainfall figures are normally 120mm.
