Spring is definitely in the air.
And after a weekend of glorious sunshine in many parts of Cork, Met Éireann is predicting more of the same for the first half of the week.
According to the national forecaster’s first report for March 2021, there is a “strong signal for high pressure to be the dominant feature of our weather during this week.”
Despite the odd shower, rainfall amounts are expected to be well below normal for the first week of spring – good news for the next five weeks of Level 5 restrictions.
Mist and fog will clear on Monday morning to leave a dry day with good spells of sunshine and highest temperatures of between 8 and 12 degrees Celsius.
Tuesday looks to be another fully dry day, with good sunny spells and highest temperatures of 8 to 12 degrees.
Overall, it’s looking settled with high pressure bringing mostly dry and calm conditions. It will be chilly after dark though with possible frost and fog:
“Mean air temperatures are expected to be close to or slightly above average but night-time temperatures could dip towards zero at times bringing some slight frosts. High impact weather is not expected.” said a forecaster.
