CHEER UP!: WARM SPELL ON WAY FOR DONEGAL – SUMMER WILL BE BETTER, SAYS FORECASTER

first_imgA TOP weather forecaster is predicting a better than average summer for Donegal – with the first of a number of warm spells arriving this weekend and temperatures of up to 23C.Peter O’Donnell of Irish Weather Online (www.irishweatheronline) told donegaldaily.com that things will get better.Said Peter: “I am continuing to think that the summer may average slightly above normal in temperatures despite this recent cold week, and there are currently indications of a warm spell starting around 24 June. “The idea of a “heat wave summer” may be a bit optimistic but then it was made for southeast England rather than any part of Ireland, and noting that you are in Donegal, I would say expect either average or slightly better than average summer weather, with a tendency to less rainfall as we move through the season.”For the next few days he is forecasting sunshine and showers for the rest of the week with a noticeable change however starting on Saturday.He says there may be some morning showers, misty or foggy in places, but turning warmer, some hazy sunshine developing, highs 19-23 C.Sunday will have sunny intervals with highs 19-23 C. He added: “It will be onsiderably warmer next week too, but with some vigorous frontal passages and showers or thunderstorms with these, followed by slightly cooler air masses lasting a day or two before more warming occurs.“In general, expect the period 25 June to 10 July to be 1-3 degrees above normal in temperature.”CHEER UP!: WARM SPELL ON WAY FOR DONEGAL – SUMMER WILL BE BETTER, SAYS FORECASTER was last modified: June 21st, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegal summerDonegal weather sunnyhigher temperaturesirish weather onlinepeter o’donnelllast_img
