Weather: What is in store this weekend?

Here is this weekend’s farming weather forecast from Met Éireann – February 2021. 

Frost and mist will quickly clear this morning (Friday, February 26th, 2021) before giving rise to a mostly dry day, according to Met Éireann.

There is a possibility of some isolated showers in the south-west with thickening cloud in the evening to bring outbreaks of rain and drizzle to Atlantic coastal counties.

Temperatures will reach between 10 to 13 degrees with lows of 4 to 7 degrees in most areas and values of 1 to 3 degrees in south Leinster tonight. Again, outbreaks of rain and drizzle will continue in Atlantic coastal counties later tonight.


Tomorrow will see a mix of cloud and bright or sunny spells with patchy, light rain or showers. The north-west will see the best of the sunshine, according to the national forecaster.

There will be patchy cloud, clear spells, and isolated showers tomorrow night. Lows of 0 to 5 degrees will produce a slight frost in some parts of the country.

Winds will be light variable or near calm, which will allow mist and fog patches to form. The national forecaster has warned the fog will become dense in places towards dawn.


Mist and fog patches may be slow to clear on Sunday, with sunny spells to break through in most places by the afternoon.

It will remain dry on Sunday afternoon with highs of 10 to 12 degrees in light easterly breezes.

Again, dry conditions will persist on Sunday night, although mist and fog patches are set to returns with lows of 1 to 4 degrees.

Next week

Looking ahead to next week, mist and fog will clear through the morning, leaving another dry day with variable cloud and more sunshine.

According to Met Éireann, it will stay mainly dry with clear spells, patchy frost, and fog on Monday night. Temperatures will reach as low as 1 to 4 degrees in light easterly or variable breezes.

Tuesday looks set to be cloudier with patchy rain and drizzle to extend northwards over Ireland. Bright and drier periods “will likely” prevail for much of the day in Ulster.

Current indications from Met Éireann suggest that high pressure will remain dominant, bringing generally settled conditions. Patchy rain and drizzle will occur at times, with temperatures to “trend near or slightly above average for early March”.
