first_imgMax enjoying Sunshine @ innishinny with Errigal in background! Picture from Patrick Bonner – We could be saying more of this next weekTHE sunshine may have gone for a day at least as forecasters warn of possible thunderstorms over County Donegal today.That’s the bad news out of the way.So here’s the good news – one forecaster reckons another heatwave is on the way later in June. “There will be showers today and a chance of a thunderstorm, rainfalls generally about 5to 15 mm, heavier inland west and northwest,” says Peter O’Donnell from Irish Weather Online.But he says the various models he uses shows that the heatwave could be back as early as next Wednesday.:The trend beyond the 16th should be slowly improving back to warm and dry conditions with continued hints of very warm weather possible by about the 20th to 25th of June.“It still looks this way, and some maps look quite toasty around the middle of next week or a bit later in about nine days from now,” he said. We will have to contend with some showers and heavy rain over Donegal in the mean time – and some strong winds.Wednesday: Breezy, showers clearing to the northeast then some sunny intervals, but another round of showers due later with stronger winds developing by evening from the south veering to westerly by evening. Morning lows 11-13 C and afternoon highs 17-19 C. Another 5 to 10 mm rain in some places. At the moment, I think the heavier rain will tend to stay near the northwest coast and some parts of the south and east could remain in modified drought despite these showers coming and going.THURSDAY … Sunny intervals, reasonably warm although fresher to start in the morning due to brisk westerly winds. Lows 7-10 C and highs 16-20 C.FRIDAY … Increasing cloud, warm. Rain possible especially in Connacht and west Munster by afternoon as winds increase rapidly to SW 50-70 km/hr. Morning lows 7-12 C and highs 17-21 C. THUNDERSTORMS TODAY BUT NEW HEATWAVE ON THE WAY, SAYS FORECASTER was last modified: June 11th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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 daily weatherSAYS FORECASTERTHUNDERSTORMS TODAY BUT NEW HEATWAVE ON THE WAYlast_img
